Re: Category structures

Harald's comment reminded me that in addition to the PSU categories I referred to in my opening post, I have one in Lightroom that I use for images that I have liked enough to carry through post-processing to the point of making a print (which I mainly hang in my home). This catalog has 1) a 4 level...

Category structures

I’m opening this thread in hopes of exploring new ideas for organizing category structures. I’m looking for things that go beyond the usual: Location, Subject, People, Events, etc. I recently read a little note by Brooks Jensen in which he describes three of his that were new to me: 1) Distance from...

Re: License activation

I cannot get it to work. I cannot copy/paste the license code itself into any file or folder -- paste is always grayed out. If I save the IDimager Order Page (wich contains the license code) to a folder and then select that folder (or the order page file within that folder) I'm told "no items match ...

License activation

I have been using PSU on a trial basis. I have just purchased the program and now have my license code. When I click on the "I already have my license" line in the program, a windows opens wanting a file name. Nothing I enter there is accepted. I need more detailed activation instructions than have ...

Re: Sequence numbers in renamed files

Thanks Tom. I think it is now working properly. The problems I encountered arose from a series of errors I was making: I sometimes failed to click "apply" in the Rename screen and couldn't understand why the changes I had made produced no change in output; I renamed from a filenam-sorted batch, fail...

Re: Sequence numbers in renamed files

I wrote to soon. I believed the catalog was correctly sequenced when I last posted. Then I began to add labels. The file was sorted by file name. As I worked back and forth among the files I began to see the old problem again; that is for a given date the sequence was out of order. What I am aiming ...

Re: Sequence numbers in renamed files

Thank you both for your help. I've made an end run around this problem. My practice has been to download my CF cards first, into a RAW archive file and second, into a set of annual folders. The latter were then imported into Lightroom as the basis for its catalog. When I went to PSU I imported the f...

Re: Sequence numbers in renamed files

Thank you, Mike, for your responses. 1) Even though I have shifted to length padding = 3 my first file displays a sequence number of 1; no zeros! None of the first 99 files has a leading zero. 2) I don't think my description of what is happening is adequate. The best I can do at this point is to rep...

Re: Sequence numbers in renamed files

I have not stated the problem clearly. It is not that trailing zeros are dropped; rather single digits are treated as if there was a trailing zero such that file number 2 appears between file numbers 19 and 20, file 3 between files 29 and 30, etc.

Re: Sequence numbers in renamed files

I have changed the length padding to 3 but it makes no difference. The trailing zeros are still dropped as I described in my first post in this thread.

Sequence numbers in renamed files

I have imported files and want to rename them as follows: yymmdd-sequence number.file extension. I have not found a way to avoid the sequence number drop trailing zeros. A series of my sequence numbers for a given date, occur in this order in the database: 1,10,11,12,13,...18,19,2,20,21,...28,29,3,3...

Re-importing files that have already been imported

I have been importing files that were, in another life, imported in to a Lightroom catalog. A bunch of them turned up in the built in Misc. category in PS. I didn't want them there, and, in a fit of madness, deleted them from the database. Unfortunately, they are scattered over a dozen folders in my...
