    I really like how the tagging feature in Windows Photo Gallery makes it easy
    to find all pictures, say, with "John" or "Mary" in them.

    The problem comes if I want to find the pictures with BOTH John and Mary. If
    I choose both tags I get pictures that have EITHER tag, which means I get
    pictures with just John, pictures with just Mary, and pictures with both of

    When I'm searching for something across thousands of photos I'm typically
    trying to narrow the search down, so it would be more frequently useful if
    selecting multiple tags showed pictures that had all of the tags. That way I
    could choose tags "John" and "Mary" and find just the pictures that had the
    two of them together.

    As a matter of fact that's how Adobe Photoshop Elements works. I'd rather
    stick with Photo Gallery if I can, but every time I'm doing a search I wish I
    were in Elements again, which AND's the tags rather than OR's them.

    Are there any plans to add this functionality so that photo searches would
    be easier?
