I am currently importing 50,000+ images and am on day 5 of the import. This is all part of a single import operation. It has been taking up about 25% of the CPU the entire time, a total of 117:44:47 hours of processor time. What the heck is it doing to take this long? For the last 4 days in the progress Activity window it just had the section for "Synchronizing XMP" with "53205 in queue" and the percent has gone up very slowly. I noticed last night it finally got the number of images for the year 1899 down to zero so I assume it has imported enough to know the correct dates of every image. But it is still saying on 56%. At least now the number in queue is going down (sits at 47648 right now). So I have another 4 days to go.

What could take this long? I do have it saving the previews in a database. I have noticed that images.thumbs.db is 6GB but hasn't changed size in 4 days. Images.cat.db is now at 386MB and I think that might be growing still but not sure.

Thanks for your feedback!

Approx 25.000 images. from 4 to 8 MP
Running on a P4 3GHz with 2 G Ram from 2003 on XP with IDimager pro.
I could use some more speed now, especially when using recipes, but it's stable.
I really don't remember when I installed IDimager, but it must be 2006 or before that. I have done a few upgrades with no or only small issues.
GIMP is my prefered tool when I have to do more fancy editing.

27.000 and that should be mere 10.000 :)
hopefully I'll soon find time to sort the good ones from the many 'soso' ...

It was a mistake to enter them all during the 30 day testing period: 10 hours on a i7 8 ca 2 GHz. happily it was at night :)

Oopsies ... boy the memory in me head ain't as good as that in the machines ... the below posted last night was from memory ... the studio is actually above 300,000 "in" the catalog, another 300K or so to go. "Home" personal stuff is around 30K images, and my rNeil is about 30K also ... the Home is nearly completely filled with what "archival" images we are bringing forward, rNeil is going to be getting a few archival ones added in ... and all three are growing apace with new images.

By spring I'll be running what ... somewheres above 750K cataloged at this rate ... and last night I said:


(I've only got about 1/3 of the ones at the studio that I want in that organization cataloged ... and it's upwards of 50K now ... I think above 70K at last look (but I'm at home on a computer without access to those figures). I expect if we only bring a 'few' legacy film sessions/images forward, and get most of our digital files we stored on cd/dvd back 'online' ... we'll eventually be above 300k not counting what we shoot "currently".

Now, for my rNeil and our personal stuff ... that adds to over another 100k somewheres ...)

87,000
But when I was wondering where to click to "vote" I seem to have clicked on 30,000-50,000.

Just an update to my original post from February 2010--

I now have 1,900 cataloged images. This total includes copies stored in various locations.

Not a huge amount, by any means, but IDI certainly makes it easy for me to find the image(s) I need.

I'm new to Photo Supreme. I'm currently using it in Trial mode. I'm also curious about the person who mentioned they have 500,000+ photos. I have a similar number of images I want to Import. Would love to know what system you are running this size Catalog on and how Photo Supreme responds with a Catalog this large. Hope to hear from you.

Did you ever get them all imported. How many days did 50,000 images take. I tried importing 20,000 images and it Imported very quickly up to 75% then it slowed to a crawl. Had to shut out to move on to othe projects but will try again. Using MacBook Pro with Retina. with 2.7ghz processor 16gigs of Ram.

Importing 20k images in Photo Supreme takes about 1.5 hour on my old 2007 laptop with a dual core processor but with an SSD (which make a LOT of difference). Of course you shouldn't close it in the mean time ;)

Don't get confused by the times reported in this topic. This topic is about IDimager, not photo supreme. IDimager was many times slower on importing images.

Better to ask your questions about Photo Supreme in the Photo Supreme forum.
