You can install MS Windows Live Photo Gallery 2011 (and other software if you like) from that link:

After many tries and experiments, I found WLPG to be the best tool for cataloging and tagging pictures.

Newest version is even more easy to use with ribbon interface, automatic people tagging, easy posting to social websites and powerful retouch tools.

- It's free
- It's non-proprietary (tags are embedded in the pictures themselves with international standard)
- It's powerful enough for me
- It's easy enough for non-geek friends

Also available for download from within WLPG are Image Composite Editor (for powerful panorama stitching), PhotoSynth (a cool and easy 3D panorama stitching) and AutoCollage (an amusing collage software). They can alternatively be downloaded from here.

It requires however decent computing horsepower and newest version 2011 doesn't work on WinXP. The 2010 version of WLPG does however works well on XP.

I've suggested WLPG to many friends and family members since I discovered it, and all of them are very very happy with it.

At last, Microsoft did it the right way.

Along Windows Live software, also worth mentionning is Windows Live Writer, which is considered as one of the best available freeware for easy blogging.
