Re: GPS Country Codes

When I was in the software industry we had a saying "the great thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from". Probably many of you have heard this one.

Re: Can I import key words at a top level?

Has PSU been corrected yet, regarding the unfortunate effects observed by Neil and others?

Re: Difficult keyword assignment on import

Thank you all for your patience and for constructive replies. I've been back to the source system and spend time verifying that it has been exporting the right data as expected, and there were one or two anomalies after all. Having corrected them I have tried all over again from the start with PSU a...

Re: Shockingly bad keyword assignment on import

Thanks for your replies. Mike, I did as you suggested and starting from a clean empty database I changed the Read Keywords processing to "Do Not Convert Keywords to Catalog Labels.". Then I imported a small set of 51 images. Nothing has been assigned to any Category. Next I set the Read Keywords pro...

Re: How can I change the Camera Make & Model metadata

Phil Interesting that you are a software product manager. Until I retired a year or two ago I was professional services director for a successful software company, so I probably have some similar ways of looking at software. I started out a programmer 50 years ago and always dabbled in programming f...

Re: How can I change the Camera Make & Model metadata

Thank you all for your thoughtful replies. I'm afraid I have been changing these fields for years, since long before XMP was around and when the only way to record something extra was by hijacking some other data field. I recently came across a few more transparencies and scanned them. The Exif data...

Shockingly bad keyword assignment on import

Please excuse me if I sound a bit grumpy; I feel that I have pretty much wasted a week on this software. I still believe that PSU has some positive potential but I'm rapidly losing faith. All my photos have delimited keywords embedded, like Europe|France|Limousin|Haute Vienne|Limoges and People|Fami...

How can I change the Camera Make & Model metadata

I have a lot of images I scanned from film that I took over the years and I want to be able to modify the metadata to reflect the actual camera that I had used to take the original picture, along with the date I took it and other stuff as usual. The make & model are shown on the Details panel but th...

Re: Can I import key words at a top level?

Progress... I changed a setting in the source system to write hierarchical keywords with a pipe delimiter. Obvious really, but I was convinced I had done this months ago. Now I have exported a thousand or so photos and it makes a big difference. Like Neil above I imported these images without having...

Re: Can I import key words at a top level?

This is also a critical issue for me, but I'm migrating from a different software but using the so-called Lightroom keyword import feature of PSU. I should have thought that this was a critical issue for anyone migrating their photos to a new DAM and I'm amazed that no attention has been paid to the...
