Not all folders in my windows live photo gallery show up when I am in Outlook & want to add a file

When I am in Outlook & I want to add a photo, I click on 'add files'. The box opens up, I click on pictures, it is only showing 13 of my 56 photo files. However, when I open up my Windows Live Photo Gallery or go to the start menu & click on 'pictures' all 56 files are there. Why when I am in Outlook & trying to upload a photo it is only showing 13 of the 56 files? This has me baffled. Help please!! I did not have this issue when before I upgraded to Outlook from Hotmail.


Thank You,


Lori Brooks
