So, I have about 5,000 pictures on my computer and I wanted to organise this mess, so I got Photo Gallery from Windows live essentials 2012.

As I'm creating tags and applying them to every picture, it's going to take a lot of time and if my computer crashes for any reason, I don't want all that work to go to waste, so I'm wondering if there's any way to save and backup the tags along with their respective pictures. 

that's the reason why I made this thread, however, any kind of help and advice regarding sorting/organising a large amount of pictures would be greatly appreciated

A while ago I got "Visipics" in order to find duplicates, it works even if the pictures are slightly edited or in another orientation, however, I wonder if there's a better software out there

In order to find the source of images, I use google image search, however, most of the time it's unsuccessful 

Speaking of Photo Gallery specifically, I have a few minor problems with it:

-despite having turned off face detection and recognition, it still tries to detect faces in pictures 

-despite having selected to not ask me again, it still asks me every time I start it up, if I want to open JXR files

-pictures "date taken" is incorrect sometimes and requires to be manually edited 

-it doesn't support animations
