Ever wanted to show your friend a great sports photo from last weeks event? You pull out your laptop, boot it up, and then realize it’s back on the desktop computer at home. Don’t let this frustration ever happen again.

There is an easy way to avoid this situation and it’s called Windows Live Sync. This small application basically takes all your photos from one computer and keeps them synced up with your other computers. Anytime you add some photos to one machine it sends those same photos to all the other computers you specified.

The great part is if you use Windows Live Gallery, Sync is already set to be used. The first thing you need to do is make sure you have Windows Live Gallery installed on each computer you would like to keep synced. Now just open up Windows Live Gallery, click file, then select Setup gallery sync. It will guide you through a simple wizard to get you going.

Once it’s setup you don’t have to worry about it. All of the syncing takes place in the background so you can keep on viewing or editing your photos like normal, you don’t even need to keep Windows Live Gallery open for things to keep up to date.

Windows Live Sync doesn’t have to be limited to your sports photos either, you can have it sync any folder you want with your other computers. So if you ever find yourself wishing you had your other computer with the photos you need, you may want to take a look at Windows Live Sync.
