Live Photo Gallery - where are the face tags stored?


  • I have a collection of photos that I manage on Windows 7 using Live Photo Gallery Face Tags. When I manage this library from a second PC by remotely mapping a second copy of Live Photo Gallery onto the original library I find that Face Tags do not appear on the original PC version of the Photo library when view using the original Live Photo Gallery.

    This makes me suspect that the Face Tags aren't stored inside the JPEGs but in another place. If this is the case how can photo collections be migrated from one PC to another without losing Face tag information?

  • I wonder the same! I have noticed that if I rename my pics the face tags are totally changed. They can appear on another pic in the background. Very strange! Stefan
