Something’s missing in Windows 7 Photo Import

Windows 7 has a very nice approach to importing images and video from a device yet it’s missing a rather critical feature … image preview!

Windows 7 Photo Import

I love that I can add a name (album) and tags, but without the image preview it’s impossible to know what the pictures are … making this pretty useless.  The picture highlighted was taken tonight and I am pretty sure is of my daughter, but of the 8 pics captured not all were good.  There’s no way to de-select the blurry ones or make sure you get the good ones.  Something to work on before release …

  1. I hadn't tried that yet, but I have noticed a couple of other little things missing from Vista (I know, who'd a thought anything would be missing from there…) that I like, such as image previews when you look at what's in the task bar (or whatever they're calling it now) or when you use Alt+Tab.

  2. Not sure I follow on image previews … I see the windows in my taskbar as they are as well as via alt-tab and windows-tab. I have never spent much time in Vista so this is all pretty new to me …

  3. Which device were you importing from? Image previews show up fine for me with my Canon SD1100 IS.
