    has anyone figured out how to display specific photos on the photo app live tile? I see the pictures that the photo app displays in:

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Packages\FileManager_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState

    I tried turning off shuffling and turning the live tile off, copying the pictures I want to display into the above folder and renaming them Tile0.jpg Tile1.jpg etc and the live tile stops functioning. re-enabling shuffle in the photo app options makes it work again but overwrites any jpg's that you copy in there with another random set.

    No and I find the live function of this tile very annoying... it still wants to show files that have been deleted! They were deleted for a reason. There must be some kinda cache but I don't know how to clear it.

    well doing what I did above minus copying new jpegs and renaming them I BELIEVE resets the cache. just delete the jpegs in that folder, the dat file, relaunch the photo app and turn shuffling back on. seems to randomly pick 5 more photos from your library. I got tired of it myself and have it showing a single photo.
