I found out, that the Microsoft Photos app is a usefull app for creating an overview over all photos stored on the NAS. I can open and work with all photos that are stored on the WD My Cloud. But it does NOT include EVERY photo in ist photos overview. All photo files have the same Access Rights. I really do not understand this. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
@Eek What are you missing and are you able to provide a image? What all have you tried in the ribbon to see if everything that is missing will show? See example image from my Windows 10 Desktop computer. Click on, tap or activate image to enlarge it.
I take it you mean list where you placed ist photos.
The Collection consists of all Folders in “Shared Pictures”, including sub-Folders.
ALL Pictures can be opened and edited with Windows Photos APP
Pictures starting with “IMG_” are NOT displayed in the Collection of the Windows Photo App.
These Pictures are made with my IPhone (5SE). The other Pictures (that are displayed correctly in the Collection) are made with an Samsung S8. I also find difficulties with Photos made by my Samsung NX300 camera, Windows Phone and Canon EOS350D.
if I make a local copy of these Folders (eg on my Desktop), then they are listet in the Collection. I already compared the Access Rights of both Pictures: they are the same…
Microsoft Photos does not always work with all files, or more precisely with extensions. I check in advance via Default Apps if my files can be opened by this application or if their format is not suitable. The problem is neither with the program and nor with the system. For example, I have book templates for google docs that I use in my work. I want to change them via Microsoft Photos. So that I don’t lose all the processing, I usually check what the default app is set for that file format. If it’s not a photo format, I change it to be able to work with https://docsandslides.com/googledocs/book/. In Windows Store Apps I run the update process again and then I can use the program once the settings update is complete.
