    The images that you see in both Windows Live Photo Gallery and Picasa 3 are
    simply provided by links to your original images. These applications do not
    normally duplicate your originals although they can optionally make backups when
    images are altered.

    AFAIK, what you're asking for is not possible....but I may be wrong.

    you will have to associate
    a file type to the program.

    for example you will have
    to associate jpg files to
    the photo gallery program.

    other picture types include
    bmp, jpeg and tiff; to mention
    a few.

    so you will have to set each file
    type above to photo gallery.

    ---------------

    sometimes you can right
    click on a pic of a particular
    extension and set it to "open
    with" a program and be sure
    to select it as the default
    program..

    you would have to do the
    above for each file type.

    or you can open explorer,
    file options, file types and
    set each picture file type
    to open with photo gallery.

    Click on the Start Orb, then Control Panel - Programs - Default Programs
    - Set Default Program. There you'll see a list of programs that are
    installed on your PC, just click on Windows Live Photo Gallery then
    click on 'Set this program as default'. This will associate all picture
    formats (jpg, gif, tif, bmp etc...) to WLPG that it can handle.
