Today's Photos app update still doesn't fix this issue for me. I wish I knew what the cause was.

Here is a very bad quality video http://sdrv.ms/MXnDpz


Link doesn't work and I'm still fuzzy on the details, are you saying that when you open up a picture in the photos app that you get a duplicated picture right next to the original?

The left half of the image is duplicated over the right half of it.

In other words, this:
Posted Image

Becomes:

Posted Image

It only happens with higher resolution images though.

For what it's worth, this doesn't happen on my Surface, so I guess it's GPU related or something along those lines.

I don't have this bug, but I do have a bug where the facebook photos feature straight-up doesn't work. It doesn't let you click the connect or cancel buttons at all when setting up the facebook connnect.

Check the picture. It is duplicated.


Yes, I DO have this bug, since the Consumer Preview! I now use RTM and it's still there! The pictures are exactly as described... left half of the picture duplicated on the right side. It is definitely a bug, and certainly NOT 3D!
Another example of Microsoft releasing a product too soon.
This, by the way, happens of 2 different machines... a HP laptop and a Dell desktop! The 1st is new and the 2nd is old albiet with an up-to-date video card.
Regards,
Mike

u sure its not linked to resolution restrictions in the app or possibly some data in the photo actually being wrong or your camerea storing data wrong? have u tried sending the exact same pictures to some one of us to see what happens? maybe your actual machine is at fault and it has nothing to do with the app? maybe the photo has corrupted?

Certainly in my case I can say absolutely that the pictures are fine in ANY other photo software; it's just in the Win8 app!
As to resolution, that should not present a problem in any app and if it does, it's a BUG!

As stated above, I have this problem on TWO different computers and, of course, the OP has the problem too... it's not down to faulty machines!
