How to control JPG quality during export (share)

I am a bit stumped about how to get my photos out of PSU in somewhat unaltered form. I currently only have in-camera made JPG's as my hardware is not really inviting extensive post-processing, but I'm warming up for the big change. I have been contemplating a workflow involving DNG, initially lossy,...

Re: How to use face detection

my wifes' compact has built in face recognition according to its manual, though I haven't experimented with it. Lots of compacts have face detection, but I don't think any have face recognition (unless it's in some post-processing software). What brand & model is you wife's camera? It is a Panasoni...

Re: Face detection - versions

Cascading areas to versions is not something that is straightforward because it only makes sense if the versions are unaltered and the areas end up at the exact same position. When you start cropping pictures with embedded area tags, things begin to get complicated, and I wouldn't personally trust ...

Re: How to use face detection

PS. I wonder why face recognition is not included in product even as licensed technology. You made lot of work and then stayed in one small step away from success Because it's currently very expensive? Google and Microsoft can afford the investment required. Small software houses can't. We'll proba...

Re: Survey: How many labels you usually assign to the photo?

From what I gather, the label number distribution for most people is close to normal (gaussian) and peaking somewhere around 3 to 6 labels, followed by a long tail to the right. I think my own distribution is easily explained. I only make (or keep) people photos, so practically all my photos have e...

Re: In Last Import Tab in V3

What happens to the metadata when I edit externally - does it export and then get re-imported or do I have to add keywords again? My impression is that metadata are unaffected when launching external editors from within PSU - how that is obtained is beyond me. I have previously lost metadata by usi...

Re: How does Geo-Tagging magically occur?

If place labels in your catalog already contains GPS coordinates, these will be copied into photos with similar place names as keywords. On the other hand, if imported photos already have GPS coordinates, then PSU will suggest a nearby place label provided the label itself is geotagged.

Amazing! Now it just works even without updating in PSU. Thanks, I'd never had figured that out by trial and error alone :D

Thanks, I'm officially blind too, apparently. Actually i have been wondering what all those options did - sometimes nothing appeared to happen when switching them around, but I was never really sure what to look for :oops:

Re: Parametric adjustments - competing schemas

OK - I'm officially dumbfounded. I fetched a DNG off the net (here http://www.copy.com/s/zVKUiNS8Jwdp) and imported it into PSU. I opened it in lightroom and yanked the white balance (temperature) towards warm yellow. I next used the Lightroom function "Update DNG Preview and Metadata". The yellow t...

Re: face annotation

I used Picasa 3.6, which came out at the same time as AvPicFaceXmpTagger. This version didn't write faces to the file at all and therefore didn't corrupt the makernotes. It did write keywords to the file, though, but I never used that feature.

Re: How to use face detection

Usually I'm only labeling people that I know, so I don't need to be reminded as to who they are There is the ever so slight probability, that your photos will exist longer than yourself. Consider proper tagging a gift for your descendants. My shelves are full of inherited photo albums with pictures...

Re: face annotation

Beware, though that Picasa does munge some of your makernotes. For this reason I originally burned facetags into my photos by using an older version of Picasa together with AvPicFaceXmpTagger, which was not destroying makernotes. Downside was, it used an oobsolete area schema, which PSU reads and co...

Re: Parametric adjustments - competing schemas

I wonder if red eye removal in the Adobe schema is a non-supported feature or whether I did something wrong in the process. The red-eye option from CRS is not interpreted by PSU. CRS (camera raw schema) is what I called Adobe schema, right? Reason for confusion: it was a JPEG I applied the changes ...
