Thank you Tom. This indeed confirms that I have implemented it correctly.

I assume DSC_8924_NEF.shadow_xml should be DSC_8924_NEF.shadow_xmp in your post?

Wow, i had deleted the .preview file from the examples i have sent to Hert. I thought it was the result of some of my own tries with PSU v2 in getting the PSU preview updated from an external editor.

So, i learned something new today. Good to know and thank you!

In order to be sure that you have all the information you need to be able to support Photo Ninja, I did some additional experimentation. I imported a raw file from my camera into a test folder. Then I open it in Photo Ninja, made some adjustments and saved them and closed the editor. Then I reopened the same raw (.nef) file in Photo Ninja and rendered a jpeg from it. Then I closed the editor again. Then I reopened the editor once more, made a few more adjustments and rendered a tiff file. Here is the result of these actions.

My original file is named DSC_8924.NEF

After adjusting raw and closing I had a subfolder called _PhotoNinja with the following files in it:
  • DSC_8924_NEF.shadow_xmp
  • DSC_8924_NEF.preview
After reopening and rendering a jpeg I had:
  • DSC_8924_jpg.shadow_xmp
  • DSC_8924_NEF.shadow_xmp
  • DSC_8924_NEF.preview
After reopening again and rendering a tiff file, I now have:
  • DSC_8924_1_tiff.preview
  • DSC_8924_1_tiff.shadow_xmp
  • DSC_8924_jpg.shadow_xmp
  • DSC_8924_NEF.shadow_xmp
  • DSC_8924_NEF.preview
The renaming scheme that I used renamed the jpeg as DSC_8924.jpg and the tiff file as DSC_8924_1.tiff. Notice that there is no preview file generated for the jpeg.

I will email you the DSC_8924_1_tiff.preview file for your reference. It is about the same size as the other preview file so I'm guessing that it too is a jpeg.

Thanks for considering this.

Note: original post was edited to correct a typo in three of the file names.

While I haven't yet tried it, I'd like to thank Hert for implementing this so promptly. I am a PSU + PN user so I greatly appreciate the improvements this will make to my workflow.

Steve.

Steven,

When you get some time to experiment with the Photo Ninja support, please let me know if it's working well for you. I'm getting inconsistent results when I verify a folder after I've used Photo Ninja to process files. I'm going to enter something on mantis but I'm having trouble figuring out how to describe what is happening because it is so inconsistent.

I don't see how Verify Folder is in any way related to PhotoNinja support. verify Folder will return all changes in the folder and if PN (or any other tool, this is not related to PN) changes a file then the file will be reported by Verify Folder. maybe PN is changing files of which you don't expect them to be changed?

Hert,

I agree that PN is probably changing files that I wouldn't have expected it to change but now that PSU is looking at all of those files, I'm getting results that I would prefer not to get. I'm still experimenting but it seems the issue is more related to the preview files then to the shadow xmp files. I'm getting weird results that I can't seem to explain. The most confusing thing is what is happening in the new tab that is created every time I process a verify folder. I suspect that I'm having issues with the "Last Imported state" functionality and it might not be related to PN at all but I have to do more testing to determine that. I can't seem to reproduce the exact same results reliably but so it's hard to identify what is going on. I guess that's the real problem, inconsistency. I will try to do some thorough testing and note the results in mantis.
