Re: Dealing With Time

I do have a time category that includes dates (actual or approximate), but mainly for objects photographed that have a particular date, rather for when images were taken. Images are dated as part of my file name (see also folder and file names ). Those from digital cameras include the date within t...

Dealing With Time

I'm working to categorize old film scans - some as far back as the 1950's. So I've created a 'Time' category to label the year, when I know it, or the decade when that's the best that I can do. What I haven't figured out is how to integrate this with later images that are time stamped from digital c...

Re: Scrambled Metadata

I have quite a few files to re-tag, but that's better than mis-tagged files. Progress.

Re: Scrambled Metadata

This clean-up was going very slowly, so I updated the PostgreSQL config files based on Hert's recommendations (and to account for bumping up my RAM last week from 16 GB to 32 GB). What a difference! Cleaning up the tags is much faster now.

Re: Scrambled Metadata

I did a quick category search and discover 4,206 mis-tagged files. They each have 109 tags. Could I not select all and remove one tag at a time for the group? And then write the metadata to the files?

Re: Scrambled Metadata

I could restore a backup of my database and write out to the files. Or I may look at the tags of the over-tagged files and search the catalog to identify all of the errant tags. That may save some of the work that I've put in thus far. But I certainly will not write metadata back to files as a matte...

Re: Scrambled Metadata

I'm finding files far removed from where I was attempting to version that have over 100 incorrect tags on them. Is there a way to fix this? Do I need to go into the database tables and look for over-tagged records? I'd rather not throw out all of my work and restore all of my photos from backups. An...

Re: Version Set Offset Folder

Then set the Offset Folder to "Parent folder". The parent includes the file's folder and all sibling folders. That's what I tried, and I ended up with images in the versions that were children of the root. Not sure why that happened. I had moved a few folder in PSU, so maybe it hadn't caught up whe...

Re: Version Set Offset Folder

The "offset folder" is the folder from where PSU starts the version checking. If you try to detect versions for a file then you can determine the "size" of the set where PSU should find for versions. That "size" of that set is based on the offset folder. PSU will first collection all images from th...

Re: Scrambled Metadata

I'm guessing that you clicked 'version selection files' rather than 'version detection'. I'd delete the images from within PSU and re-import them from a backup, if you have one. Otherwise delete all the tags and start tagging again? I'm pretty certain that I was using version detection. I do have a...

Scrambled Metadata

I was having problems with versioning - it seems the settings were such that I had PSU looking too far from the location of the files that I wanted to have versioned. So I had some version sets that contained unrelated images. I destroyed the version sets, but now some images have over 100 tags wher...

Version Set Offset Folder

I don't think I fully understand the Version Set Offset Folder. I assume that this sets how far in the folder hierarchy to search for matching versions. Does Current restrict the search only to the current folder? Or does it restrict the search to the current level of the hierarchy and leaves? I ask...

Re: DXO Photolab 4 Workflow

I wonder what database they are using. SQLite, apparently - the same as the standard version of Photo Supreme. Stability should not normally be an issue. Thanks, SQLite should be robust enough to store RAW processing recipes. So I will forgo the dop sidecar files, and I will back up the db regularly.

Re: DXO Photolab 4 Workflow

Hello dismayed, I am also a DXO user. The database of DXO can corrupt quite easily. If you have dop files you do not need to worry. If you do not care about edit history then of course a corrupt database would not be a problem. Sigi Hmmm. I wonder what database they are using. It's not as if databa...

Re: Beginners Questions to Server Version

Thank you, Dismayed It seems as if my NAs only has 512 MG of RAM, it is rather a lean version of the Synology portfolio :-) So I should not expect too much for the beginning, but do start to try around what it means to me. Your NAS may be fine if it functions purely as a file server. My own NAS is ...
