Re: Import with xmp sidecars

Not to worry - I did a sample import with default settings and all my metadata was recovered from the XMPs nicely.

Import with xmp sidecars

As mentioned in another thread I am building a new PC following the failure of the motherboard on my old one. I've decided to do a clean import from the photo folders on my disk which I have moved to my new PC as the previous databases had got in a bit of a mess with folders being deleted or files m...

Re: Moving to a new pc after motherboard failure

Moving to a new pc after motherboard failure

My main pc recently suffered a motherboard failure. The disks were fine and all my photo files and ps database were on external USB drives. I have around 400k photos and I had setup ps to write all the metadata to xmp sidecars for all file types. The question is whether it is better to recover using...

Re: RAW and JPG files no longer linked on import

Thanks for your investigations and opinions Michael - but the same structure and scripts worked in PS2 and PS3 so I am reluctant to redesign my folders to accommodate changes in PS. I decided it was time to upgrade because of the performance improvements and those have been noticeable for me.

Re: RAW and JPG files no longer linked on import

The Path for the RAW files is: E:\Photo Libraries\Originals\Raw Library IV\2021-02\08 (the final parts of the path are month and week of year which are generated as part of the custom parameters) For JPEG files the folder structure is dependent on the camera - I have an import profile for each camer...

Re: RAW and JPG files no longer linked on import

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the suggestion. I changed the preferences as suggested, ran an import of RAW+JPG files and still the same. Assigning labels to the RAW versions did not result in those labels being applied to the JPG versions. Any other suggestions?

Neil

Re: RAW and JPG files no longer linked on import

I have a custom import script which puts the .jpg files in a different folder to the RAW files. It worked and PS recognised the link between them in PS2 and PS3, but has stopped recognising the link now. Because the RAW files I so much larger I keep them separately. Not been a problem before.

RAW and JPG files no longer linked on import

Since upgrade to PS6 (from PS3), it does not seem to recognise photos that were taken as both RAW and JPG as being linked. Consequently I am seeing 2 effects from this: 1. all files are displayed separately so if I import fifty photos, instead of seeing 50 thumbnails I will see 100 and I can not get...

Re: beginner's questions: keywords, JPG+RAW etc

Hi, if I shoot JPG+RAW with my camera, is there a way to see only one thumbnail for the 2 versions of a given picture? apaprently it is possible during the import process (found a video from ID Imager on that), but it is not working for me, maybe I am doing something wrong G Did you get an answer f...

Benefits of upgrading from V2?

I've been using IdImager and Photo Supreme for quite a while as my main DAM. However I have never seen any advantage to upgrade from V2 which still serves me well, with one exception.... Performance! I often wait several seconds/minutes after assigning keywords to my RAW files before I can add addit...

Re: Performance improvement by upgrading?

Thanks Hert for the reminder re compacting. Although it took a couple of hours I've compacted the database on my current version and it is much, much faster than it was to load and to find keywords for assignment. Looks like I don't actually need to upgrade just yet.

Performance improvement by upgrading?

Hi, I'm currently using PS - build number 2.2.5.1045 (64Bit). Functionally this does everything I require. I purely use it for assigning structured Keywords to sidecar xmps and for searching. All other image and video processing is undertaken using a variety of RAW and other image processing tools w...

Re: Photo Supreme V2 is available

Cancel that - despite showing no progress and the database upgrade window staying greyed out and "Not Responding" - it all of a sudden cleared away and revealed my photo library!

I really don't understand that!

But it seems to be working now.
