Re: Q: Minor flaws to be reported in Mantis?

PSu is a commercial application and any language support offered should be correct and clear to the users choosing that language. I am sure that Hert would agree, but probably would not prioritise language corrections over bug fixes. By entering your observations into Mantis you are helping Hert to ...

Re: Which date is which?

This is an unconfirmed guess. Many dates may be recorded in metadata. PSu has a set of rules to determine which of them is used as the "photo date", as summarised in http://forum.idimager.com/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=22960&p=103498&hilit=photo+date#p103498. From this you can see that if "date taken", "d...

Re: Copy Portfolios to new database?

I believe that if you enable writing and reading of the ICS schema during sync that portfolios should be recreated as the relevant images are imported.

Re: A few newby questions

To extend what Tom has said: 1. If you want to see only one version "stack" when you have raw+jpeg pairs in the same folder and are using folder view then you can achieve this very simply by filtering for "type". 2. By default star ratings and colour labels apply only to individual members of a vers...

Re: FTS expression tree

As I label many previous year's images, I'm finding duplicate folders and other anomalies. I first make corrections in the windows folders and then tell PSu to update itself. That's when things slow to a crawl. Even empty folders take a lot of time to remove. Is this the best that can be done? Coul...

Re: FTS expression tree

Besides, I doubt that using hyphens or spaces should have an impact. Even if these are used regularly in SQLite search statements good programming should take care of that. It would imply that you cannot do a search in PSu using a space? Almost all of my keywords have spaces, some include hyphens. ...

Re: FTS expression tree

A quick "google" reveals that the error message is generated by SQLite and "it's something SQLite says if you've got a query with way too many arguments within a single set of parenthesis". Could these difficulties be related to filenames containing characters that act as operators or delimiters in ...

Re: Corrupt photo dates

It has happened again, and the corruption is far more dramatic than just the loss of photo date. After adding keywords and resizing in PSU the entire metadata (per ExifTool) reads as follows............ The metadata is truncated there so all other information has been lost from the file! The photo ...

Re: Corrupt photo dates

I did use ExifTool to look inside one of the files and there was no sign of the original date. However, for that photo and others that I have recognised as having lost their dates I have been able to look up the original dates in backup files and have applied them in PSU. What was in the various da...

Re: Corrupt photo dates

At the top of this thread I asked whether there is a keyboard shortcut (or some other action) to overwrite the Photo Date with the current date/time. Am I correct in thinking that there isn't? There are ways of doing this, but there is no direct shortcut and it is hard to imagine either sequence be...

Re: Files not shown as "out of sync" but keywords not recorded in file

I think that PSu uses a comparison of date/time stamps to determine whether catalog and image files are in sync. Changing preferences for how the sync should be performed if it is performed does not cause images to be marked as out of sync. For example, you can set the preferences so that labels are...

Re: Import very slow

Do you have automatic version detection switched on in the import profile? I think that would cause import to slow as the number of images grows. I'm not sure. Does the importer's version detection check against images imported in previous sessions? I thought it did but, judging from a brief test, ...
