Versioning or not

Post by dino » 17 Dec 17 14:19

If i understood correctly versioning means to collect images together derived from one original image e.g. RAW > JPEG. In a version set the images have the same content and same labels.

Images having different labels but logical belonging together cannot collected in a version set. This causes me headache and I need help of you PSU experts.
For example I have an image of a family reunion showing 6 persons with one event label and six person labels. The b/w version, a print version and a slightly edited version (e.g. red eye remove) have same labels. A cropped image of this scene with five persons only is not a version.

How can I make a reference between this derived image and its origin image and between this derived image and other derivatives of the same origin?

At the moment I name the derived image file like the origin file name but add a letter (pic1a.jpg is a pseudo version of pic1.jpg)
Sorry, sometimes I do not see the wood for the trees

You're right, labels are currently applied to all versions within a version set. FWIW, I did suggest (in this thread - viewtopic.php?f=57&t=23869) cascading labels according to placeholder to provide the kind of flexibility you're after...

At the moment I keep everything in a version set but, in addition to applying labels to the image as a whole, I also tag individual faces. That way at least it's fairly obvious that the 'ghost' label doesn't apply to any of the people in the edited image.

cascading label discussion? oh boy, a lot of meat to eat for a newbie like me.

Thank you for your area trick
