photo app live tile uses only one directory - why does mine not use photos from ALL folders in m pictures

I have Windows 8.  The Photo App Live Tile will look at only one folder in my pictures library, so I see the same few pix over and over.  I have tried moving all my folders off C, uninstalling and reinstalling the photo app.  When I move a few picture folders back to My Pictures, the live tile will only show me pix from the first folder I move.  I have hundreds of folders - how do I get the app to look at all of them, as it should?

Thanks for any help!
that's just the way the brain dead photos app works. it refreshes those 5 tiles
rarely and there's no easy interface to click and make it change. you can
manually force it to refresh though. see
for details.
