Re: Best Way to Reorganize Folders & Catalog

On the organization of folders, Folder and file names on the file system provides several ideas. See also Folder structure: Should I separate raw/jpg? On portfolios -vs- folders, IMHO the best use is: folders = input = where you store your images; portfolios = output = where you organize selected im...

Re: Default settings for labels - and auto update parents

I understand the idea re hierarchical keywords... Just checking :) ...however ASFAIK this is only refers to when 'label(s)' are synced/written to the file. What if I don't want keywords written to the file? This is indeed a choice in "Store metadata to the database only". Hierarchical keywords work...

Re: Default settings for labels - and auto update parents

- Also assign its parents - default Yes would be a good option to have For most purposes, hierarchical labels make that unnecessary, except in special circumstances. Make sure you understand what it's doing; to quote the associated tip: This option will enable you to speed up your cataloging proces...

Re: Help with editing the custom thumbs info needed.

Through playing based on other code posted here, I've come up with something that more-or-less does what you want:

Code: Select all

%code result := 'GPS %ImageHasGPS{encode=html}' %/code
However (until now) I've coded nothing in Pascal, and not much in anything else, so there's probably a better solution.

Re: Darwin Core Biodiversity for cataloguing species

I don't use Darwin Core myself, however: 1 - It would be better to add the information to your catalog items (you need to be using the DC editor in the 'details' panel to see DC in the details profile)...

From the image, I guess we're talking about the left panel, not the right.

Re: Question re Versions

There are 3 ways you can do it: - apply a filter to the folder to only select JPG or RAW images - stack the images (which you can do as well as, or instead of, versioning) - change your preferences to always show versions as a set: DisplayAsSet.png Or split the JPGs and RAW files into different fold...

Re: New update: 6.3.0.3755

Another thing that could be the case is that your catalog is not in good order (mainly: missing indexes). Starting with a new catalog file and importing your 24K images will be faster and easier. That certainly sounded plausible, but turns out not to be the cause. I imported 12K images into a new c...

Re: New update: 6.3.0.3755

1) No, there are no active filters 2) Yes, the catalogs are excluded from the virus scanner; Windows Defender is entirely disabled 3) I'll give this a try and report back although, following my tests below, I don't think that's going to be the problem. I've also just been running the 24K image test ...

Re: New update: 6.3.0.3755

the performance improvement comes from an improvement in the software, and is unrelated to the database system used. maybe try to compact and try again. and keep preferences as default as possible. 17 seconds to open 24k images is dramatically slow. as mentioned, on my outdated laptop it does 20k i...
