No crashes here, I have about 175 images in my gallery, I have fixed,
exported, cropped, opened in third party image programs and no problems. Are
there any error messages displayed when the crash occurrs? I am wondering to
myself if it could be the Volume Shadow Service on your system that could be
causing this.

I'll try disabling it (Just stop the Volume Shadow Service?) the next time I
have a bunch of pictures to upload from my camera..

I just ran through another pile of photos. Before I started, I noticed that
the Volume Shadow Service was not running but was set on manual. I thought
that the Photo Gallery must use the Volume service, so to be safe I disabled
it. Was that correct?

I ran through about 50 photos with no problem! But I am not sure if that
was coincidence, or was disabling Vol.ume Service helpful in that the Photo
Gallery uses that service. Does it?
