preferred strategy for upgrading from Photo Supreme V3 to V4

Should I uninstall Photo Supreme V3 before installing Photo Supreme V4?

My concerns:
  • corrupting the catalog by accidently updating from two coexisting versions
  • damaging the V4 program by uninstalling V3 at a later time

I do have the catalog data backed up.

Re: how to dynamically build or alter a search argument

I appreciate your response, Hert.

My little specific need is probably not worth the effort required by the Photo Supreme developers, but maybe in the grand scheme of things having macro parsing in the quick search bar could provide some potential universal benefit.

Re: how to dynamically build or alter a search argument

Thanks, sanphotgn. That is a clever approach that had not occurred to me. In hindsight I probably should not have selected 40,000 images before trying your suggestion. Photo Supreme was working really hard for several minutes trying to comply with the filtering command, then it finished with no resu...

how to dynamically build or alter a search argument

I recently began using Amazon Drive as an additional backup for my image files. There is a little feature Amazon Drive provides that I would like to emulate in Photo Supreme. Simplifying it somewhat, each day Amazon Drive sends me a link to a web site that shows all my images that have photo dates c...

Re: Flickr, concerning person in image tag - shows only one name out of many

Vlad, your suggestion would likely work, but in general I try to limit my use of people's names as keywords for a couple of reasons: 1. Years ago my daughter noticed that on Google/Bing searches, her name would occasionally show up linked to online photographs of her. The connection seemed to trace ...

Re: Flickr, concerning person in image tag - shows only one name out of many

Thank you for the suggestion, Hert. I did try it, but unfortunately it did not resolve the problem.

It would certainly be helpful if the other developers followed standards as rigorously as you do.

Flickr, concerning person in image tag - shows only one name out of many

I think this is a Flickr issue, not PSU, but perhaps someone here will have a suggestion. Within PSU I have created a Flickr portfolio. Within that portfolio I have created a collection of a couple hundred family history photos. These photos often contain groups of people whose names have been added...

Brilliant, sanphotgn! Your process (click, mouse float, delete key) worked.

Re: 2 In Last Import in favorites

Thanks, Larry. I do in fact see two "In Last Import"s in the filter dropdown, so that agrees with your experience.

Unfortunately, I do not know how to delete items from the filter dropdown list. :(

A little more help, please...

Re: 2 In Last Import in favorites

I managed to put three "In Last Import" items in the Favorites list. Clicking the star next to "In Last Import" in the "By Catalog State" menu list removed one of the "In Last Import" items from the Favorites list (bringing the count down to two), but I have found no way to remove either of the two ...

Re: Error on Compact

When my database was having problems, Hert suggested the following:

--------------------------

And what if you run this query on your database?

delete from idImageData where DataName = 'LASTACTIVETABS'

--------------------------

Running the query did, in fact, fix my problem.

Re: What would you do if Photo Supreme fails to start?

Bless you! Running the query fixed the problem. I did initially replace "delete" with "select *" to see what was out there. The result was one line including some obscure (to me) hex data. Summarized actions and results: 1. database passed SQLite Expert integrity check 2. something in the database c...

Re: What would you do if Photo Supreme fails to start?

I have done as suggested (moved the database to a different folder). This did allow Photo Supreme to run. Progress. I tried removing the thumbnail database in case the problem was within that db, but with that change PS3 still failed to start I would really appreciate ideas for what to do next. Curr...

What would you do if Photo Supreme fails to start?

I have already put a bug report on Mantis (although this could easily have been "user error"), but while I'm waiting for a response I thought perhaps someone on the forum could help me out. After importing lots of images, adding and altering a lot of metadata, after a Windows 8 update, and after an ...
