Re: Observation - Keyword Processing...

Setting both of these options at the same time doesn't make much sense, since you typically want IDI to take precedence with your metadata or you want the files (and possibly some other application) to do so. Craig - thanks for all that but, to be frank, this is still all too confusing. Man, all I ...

Re: Issue with applying a Detail Profile

Hi Craig, that's a good question - as I'm just finding out at this very moment! Originally, I pulled in the profile I'm working with as an XMP template created in Bridge. Now, it looks like I've made a BIG mistake in doing this. In applying this converted profile, it seems to have screwed up and ove...

Observation - Keyword Processing...

Hi - while checking out Tools >> Options >> XMP Sync Settings, was looking over this Keyword Processing item and - I'm really confused. I mean, there's "Store Catalog Info to XMP/IPTC behavior" section and some stuff there and, "Read XMP/IPTC to Catalog behavior" and some stuff there. So, if I choos...

Issue with applying a Detail Profile

Hi Hert, Seem to be having an issue applying a Detail Profile I've created to a selection of images. It seems to work fine if applied to a single image. Doesn't seem to work when trying to apply the profile to a selection. By "Detail Profile" I mean opening up the Image Details dialog box and workin...

File name to title script

Hi - is there a image file name to IPTC/XMP Title field script to perform this function? I don't yet use IDI to "ingest" my images. In my present workflow tend to move my RAW files from CF cards to the hard drive using Windows Explorer. From the hard drive, use Bridge to scan and select images befor...

Re: automating the sync processes...

Hi Frank, hi Craig, This is one reason why I'm with the "program", so to speak. Meaning IDI and specifically versioning - its not available anywhere else. In terms of functionality I have no issue with thumbnails. Afterall, just view them as ready-reference items. FWIW, they invariably look "wrong" ...

automating the sync processes...

Hi, This is something that is really driving me batty - this lack of automation. I'm getting a little fed up hitting all those F8, Ctrl + F12 and other keystroke combinations. Its now becoming a huge pain and, to be frank, its beginning to turning me off IDI. I want to speed up my digital image work...

"soften" up the image delete process...

Hi, Would be nice to "soften" the image delete process in IDI. Its far too aggressive in nearly all instances. By this I mean, there are instances where I don't want a particular image in a selection and thus, want to remove it from the selection but don't necessarily want to delete it from its fold...

Re: "synchronize all data between original image and database"

Apologies - this looks like another RTFM thing - as in hitting Ctrl + F12 :oops:

"synchronize all data between original image and database"

Is there some way to automate or, is there a "one click option" to run this process? Being new to IDI and currently working on around 15,000 images, I'm getting a little fed up coming across and seeing all these orange XMP buttons all over the place - as in top left of the thumbnail. Its gets worse ...

Re: Issue opening DNG files in PhotoShop via IDI...

Regarding the above - its seems that while IDI "sucked in" the images from their original folders, some of the images were duplicated and renumbered. In other words, there were two images the same but now with different numbers. In the renumbering process, other images that had the same number were ...

Re: Issue opening DNG files in PhotoShop via IDI...

Hi Hert, That's what I did - as in restarting IDI - hoping the problem would go away. It didn't. Yes, I'm in Media Explorer. Not too sure what you mean, as in "how many folder icons..." there are. In ME on the top left I have Up(..) and near that a yellow folder icon with a green up curled arrow. Th...

Issue opening DNG files in PhotoShop via IDI...

Not sure if this has been reported before or, even if its a bug. Here goes: In IDI have a folder full of DNG files - they started off as .CR2's from a Canon EOS 1D MkII and then converted, renamed and templated meteadata added via Bridge (CS2). Now, I want to move to the next stage of converting the...

copyright symbol and other foreign character issues.

Hi - this is seems to be a minor issue and may have nothing to do with IDI. Also, may have been dealt with elsewhere but here goes. In IDI's Image Details (IPTC/XMP)'s dialog box - in the Copyright Notice field I may have: © Some Name - 2008. In using Bridge and its File info, I now get: © Some Nam...
