Hi there! I have this awful bug in the built in Photos app (RTM) and I had it in CP and also in RP. I tried to find a solution, but the moderators at the offical MS forums gave those stupid answers like reinstall the app (did not work) or reinstall windows (this is a fresh install so it did not work). Did you experience this bug also? Could you fix it somehow?

Are you saying that whenever you open a photo, you're seeing two of those photos in the Photos app? I haven't experienced that in any of the preview versions of Windows 8.

What's the name of the app? I'll try to replicate it.

Also, where did that photo come from? Looks like it'd make a great wallpaper

That’s not a bug, that’s a 3D image ;) just try the crossed eye method and you'll see...

Every widescreen photo opens up duplicated in the default Photos app in Windows 8. It isn't 3D, it's a bug.

Tried it! No luck. By the way, it is a Thinkpad x200 (intel x4500)

Check if you have duplicated folders in Libraries.

Maybe Windows is fascinated with your photo so much that it wants to have copies :woot:

I registered just to say I have the same exact issue and I was really hoping that by the RTM that it'd be ironed out. For me, it's on an Intel Core 2 Duo (1.33GHz) CPU, with GM45 chipset/ GPU.

It doesn't seem to happen with any photos taken on my cell phone, but anything taken with my digital camera has this problem. I also have the problem with 2560x1440 wallpaper that I downloaded off the internet, so it's not just my camera.
