  1. Egon, it seems, after resizing the dialog, Daminion remembers the new size even after ending and starting the client again.
  2. As I said above, having spacing spaces in the path, always worked fine with me and it seems to me as a limitation, when the path is too long (or the dialog window too narrow). Egon, did you try to resize the dialog, by placing the mouse pointer over the right border of the dialog and when it changes to a double arrow (↔), hold the button and pull to the right? This did work for me. Before resizing: After resizing: After more resizing:
  3. I agree with Alain. Makes perfectly sense to me. As a workaround, you can assign a Color Label to all video formats (if you don't use color labels heavily yet). That way you can use the color instead of the media format in your queries.
  4. Not sure, if this happens always, but I found cases when the changed tag is not written into metadata. It happens, when you rename a tag and the new tag needs to be merged with an existing on. It seems to work fine, if you rename a tag and the resulting new tag does not exist yet (i.e. no merge necessary). I just tried the above again in Build 203.
  5. I agree! This is also somewhat inconsistent, since it does work for some tags (place, event, description ...) and does not for others. Note, there is also a difference between "Does not match" and "Does not contain". The latter is possible for even fewer tags.
  6. Searching for specific AI Labels works for me in Build 2018 (as well as searching for AI Labels not empty). However, it does not work in <filter tags> at the top of the tags tree.
  7. One more observation: You cannot add an AI Label manually (probably works as designed, but I'm not sure, it makes sense), but you can remove one of those labels. However, unless you perform an Undo immediately, you can never restore it. If you repeat, Generate AI Labels for that image, nothing happens or if you export to CSV (which does include AI Labels) and import it again, the missing AI Label will not be restored. One exception though: If there is another item still having that label, you can select both, right click that label in the Properties panel and select Assign 'xx' to select
  8. A similar issue exists, if you use the new AI Labels. If you loose the catalog database, for whatever reason, your loos also all AI Labels. Of course, they can be recovered by accessing Google Cloud Vision again, but for a big number of images a lot of time and costs can incur (only 1,000 tags per month can be created for free). Besides that, I remember there were other tags not written to metadata. This disturbs me too (and for me was one of the reasons, not to use links or groups anymore). However, SQL-savvy people can get a list of list of group tops (the item on to of each gro
  9. Agree, I am waiting ... hoping for a fix too! Meanwhile, I found my own workaround: Since AI Labels is not empty does work correctly, I tagged all of them with "AI Label present", so I can negate that tag. Initially I used Keywords for that, but I did not like the fact, this (hopefully temporary) tag is written to the metadata by the Synchronization process. To avoid this, I now used Office Document Subject, which doesn't seem to appear, when I show all tags with ExifTool. The down side however, is the fact the Synchronization process is started for each of those images anyway and
  10. Thanks k1w. Later on I realized, I confused 1,776 with 1.776 and my observation match yours.
  11. Literally several thousands? During what time frame did you do that? Did you watch the Google "IAM & Admin" Quotas console ( https://console.cloud.google.com/iam-admin/quotas?project=yourproject&service=vision.googleapis.com ) ? It is still not quite clear to me, how Google accounts for the number of Cloud Vision API calls and what the "Limit" of 1,800 really means. It say "Requests per minutes" but the "Current Usage" counter was slowly increasing and 1,776 could be the number of images I requested AI labels fo yesterday. Update: I just noticed the current usage says 1.776
  12. I just realized, AI Labels is empty is partially working. In the sense, it correctly excludes all images which were in the catalog, before I enabled AI tagging for the very first time. All images added to the catalog after that point in time, are tagged with an AI Label "Unknown", even if they were tagged now and are falsely considered as AI Labels is empty : (Ignore the following screen shot. It was accidentally taken and I am not able to remove it from this post anymore đŸ˜¢ )
  13. To me, the backslash (\) is the normal way in Windows and the forward slash only exceptionally used ...? In any case, Egon did not enter the path manually, but it was generated by the Daminion client after selecting the folder in the folder tree (green dot in his first screen shot). Good suggestion. Just to find out, whether the space was indeed the cause of the problem. As I said above, I have plenty of spaces in folder names, but never saw this behavior. Agree! This also caused trouble to me when defining external programs to be used for Open With ... . If the folder of file
  14. Using Advanced search with AI Labels is empty does not work as expected. The result shows all items, even when there are AI Labels,
  15. Having tried it briefly now, I agree with Paul and Dean. I guess, we need to learn, how to use the automatically generated tags in a clever way. It would help, if it would be possible to create synonyms for the AI tags or some way to link AI tags to manually created keywords or categories.
  16. Spaces within in folder names work fine for me (at least in Build 1988 and before), but I suspect the the single quote in Lok's doing something bad (possibly in combination with a space subsequently following?). Can you try what happens, if you rename Lok's to Loks?
  17. Unless Daminion provides another solution, there is a workaround: You can create your own thumbnail. Assuming the name of you image is xxxxx.eee you can create a JPG with the name xxxx.eee.thumb.jpg . After that, you perform an Image -> Update Thumbnail (or simply Ctrl+B) and Daminion uses the thumbnail. This was documented somewhere, but I need to search for a link. To provide a (fixed) Thumbnail for all my gpx files, I wrote a little Python script, which I can share, if you want, but it certainly needs to be modified. However, the workaround is meant for user defined media types
  18. In this case Daminion's Creation Datetime in the new catalog is identical with the Creation-, Change- and Last Access Date of Windows. This means when you added the image to the new catalog, Daminion could not find any valid Exif, IPTC or XMP metadata in the image. Since the old catalog has an older time stamp, we can assume it is the correct time, when the picture was taken. However, meanwhile, the metadata has been remove from image or cannot be read anymore. You should use the Exiftool or Image -> Actions -> Show All Metadata ... to see the metadata in the image file.
  19. Sorry, since I never use the menus, I used the wrong term, Egon. You need to Add (or simply press Ctrl+i) the images to the catalog.
  20. Egon, when you do it that way, the tool should not discover any differences. You should use Daminion, to import into the new catalog. Not sure, what the cause of the false difference is. Possibly the umlaut Ă¼ in the folder name ... but this just a guess only. Which version of the tool did you use? I suggest the on on GitHub Posted on October 25, 2017.
  21. No, this is not correct, Egon. You need to create an empty catalog (correct), but you also should import all pictures there before running the script.
  22. I forgot to describe one method, I frequently use, to create and assign a new tag in a single step: In the Tags Tree select Keywords, Categories or whatever tag you want to add and assign, right click it and select Add Tag... (or even simpler select Categories and press the Insert key) The Add Tag... dialog appears and you enter the new tag. Before you press Enter or click the Create button, also select check "Assign to selected files" (or hold the Alt key). The new Category will not only be created, but at the same time assigned to all selected items (which could be thousands, if y
  23. Not sure, I completely understand Julien's intention, but I would like to point out other methods to create new tags and assign existing or new tags tags to many images with a single click. Not exactly the same, as suggested by Julien, but I believe, you can reach the same result this way: Assume you have selected one more images, all already tagged with the same keyword. You can right click that keyword and select "Locate 'xxxx' in the tags tree" (in my example, I used Categories instead of Keywords): As a result of clicking "Locate", the Categories branch in the Tags tree will b
  24. Not only that, as I reported several months ago, the links to this forum are broken. No wonder, we are seeing less and less here.
  25. Thanks, Uwe. Very likely true, I did find some of my recently used values there. But I would not recommend trying to modify that file. Since it contains binary values, you might produce any kinds of errors.
