Microsoft is planning to beef up Windows 10’s functionality in the Anniversary Update planned to become available for the public on August 2nd. One of the small but useful additions is the ability to create photo reminders with Cortana in Windows 10.
In fact, the assistant will be able to follow your commands directly from the lock screen among other things. Regarding photo reminders, they can be useful when using pictures of shopping lists but also specific products you plan on buying.

With that said, it’s very easy to create photo reminders with Cortana in Windows 10. Just follow the steps below and you’ll add your own in just a few seconds.
Say ‘Hey, Cortana’ followed by the reminder ‘Remind me to……’. or if you want to manually customize the reminder, click on the Start button and type ‘remind me’ then click on the first result.
Then you can fill in the reminder, and set its trigger – which can be a person, place or time.
Now you can click on ‘Add a photo’ and select Library to add an existing image or Camera to snap a photo on the spot.
Once you’ve taken or selected a photo, you just need to click on Save and it will be assigned to your reminder.
