(b) How do I repopulate the Catalog with the label that was deleted?

Regards,

Re: File Name Conventions, xmp files, and raw files

Assuming you have a backup of all your photos, you will need a reference to the old filename once renamed the images. Since this is the second time you will rename the photos, it is possible the xapMM:PreservedFileName is holding the original name of the camera or it does not exist. But when the fi...

Warinng: Image not available or medium not loaded

What does the warning, "Image not available or medium not loaded" mean? This message popped up a couple of times today when I tried to click on a thumbnail. Thanks.

Thanks. Fortunately, I had already done quite a lot of research on file names to know about most of the suggests at dpBestflow. Never the less, dpb has been book marked and I will use them as a resource. Thanks.

Re: File Name Conventions, xmp files, and raw files

You might need to consider not just where you want to get to, but also where you are starting from. How are the files named now? Are they all (or mostly) as named by a camera (eg IMG_nnnn.Ext) or have they been renamed previously? Are all of the images from digital cameras and with Exif metadata in...

Re: File Name Conventions, xmp files, and raw files

Mike, Thanks for reply and the book suggestions. So happens that I already have Peter's book. Now, I just have to read it.
