The My Pictures folder built-in to Windows XP is your own personal, computerized family photo album. You’re able to quickly and easily create slide shows, screen savers, and other fun tricks with your digital camera photos.

  • When viewing photos in the My Pictures folder, choose Thumbnails or Filmstrip from the View menu to see your pictures displayed different ways.

  • Open any folder in your My Pictures folder and click View as a Slide Show from the task pane to display the pictures full size on your monitor.

  • Double-click any photo to see it in a larger window.

  • Click any photo and choose E-Mail This File to mail it to a friend. Windows automatically resizes the photo to the proper proportion.
