  1. I agree, it would be nice to assign the same tags to multiple files without manually selecting them.
  2. You can use my tool to check the consistency between JPG–RAW pairs. https://github.com/juhavlintula/DamScan
  3. I'm now travelling and back to home after one week.
  4. Hi, Resolution is 3840×2160, no scaling in Windows (i.e. full resolution in use). I view images at "Fit to screen" scaling. -Juha
  5. When I'm looking at full screen images on my external 4K display Daminion client crashes after a few images. If I do the same on my laptop's FullHD display, I don't have any issues. Has anyone else experienced the same? I have shared the Windows Event Viewer logs with support.
  6. I don't know if this is valid, as you have been writing the tags in the raws. At least, if you are not writing the tags in raws and changing e.g. creation date/time will write the change into the xmp file, but when Daminion imports the file, the raw has precedence.
  7. I have one pixel size dots, when I view the JPG in full screen on light mode (version 2451). If I turn the dark mode on, the white pixels disappear.
  8. Thank you Kate, I did try the button below [=] and didn't realize there was also a button above. -Juha
  9. The latest build doesn't show the field above the thumbnails. I have selected several alternatives, but none of them is visible. Also I noticed, that Exposure (as a combined field with Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO) is not available as a one-line information below the thumbnails. I had selected that in the earlier version and it works, but if I remove it, I cannot get it back. (added image to clarify)
  10. I have sent you the sample. This seems to be an issue also with JPGs. When I imported the JPGs generated from the ORFs, they had the Shutter Speed missing when I imported them. Also, when I did Read Tags from a file for an JPG that was taken with my mobile, the Shutter Speed disappeared. This was an image that I had imported already earlier and which had the value visible.
  11. I just upgraded to 2451 (and to 7.0) and imported first set of Olympus RAW Files, and the Exposure time is missing from the image information. The Properties pane shows aperture and ISO, but the shutter speed is empty. When showing all metadata, there is a value for Exposure Time. If you need, I can provide an example.
  12. Hi Uwe, I have exlicitely imported the file.ext.xmp files into my catalog, so I'm not expecting Daminion automatically know anything about the sidecar file. I tested also with an xmp-file generated by Daminioin. I created a copy and imported into my catalog. The result was that the tags were not read from the file and my updates were not written into the file. So the reason is not that Daminion ignores the file, because it contains unknown tags. For the generated JPGs, I don't need to create another copy. If I'm regenerating the JPG, it's enough to update the thumbnail in Daminion an
  13. I'm using darktable (dt) as my raw editor. darktable used sidecar files file.ext.xmp to store the edits and tags as dt has also some DAM functionality. My workflow is that I import my images first into Daminion and cull them, then I use GeoSetter to geolocate them and then I process the raws in darktable. After that I import the sidecar files and generated JPGs and tag the images in Daminion. When I redo my edits and regenerate the JPG, my tags are not copied into the output as dt only reads the tags from file.ext.xmp. If I use exiftool and copy the tags from file.xmp to file.ext.xmp the
  14. IMO the key is consistency; decide your method and try to stick to that. Then it is easier to tag new images and find the old ones. I have used the same principles as Uwe and Wilfried. I have decided, that in my collections City is the municipality where the location is. The place is then the village, or district/borough of the city (arrondisément). Also like Wilfried, I have been here more flexible. Uwe's suggestion of creating a parallel structure is also a good one, you could have a keyword tree National parks/Canada/Ontario/Algonquin Park. In this structure you could also leave s
  15. Hi, commenting on your first issue. Every RAW file contains the raw data and a preview image (in JPG). When you add RAWs to your catalog, Daminion shows the embedded JPG. Some RAW processors leave the embedded image as-is (i.e. as out of camera JPG) some replace it to reflect your edits. When exporting your image Daminion it reads your raw data and converts that to JPG. As Daminion doesn't have the Lightroom "engine", it cannot interpret your Lightroom edits in the DNG file and exports it unprocessed. You need to convert the DNGs to JPGs alredy in Lightroom. -Juha
  16. Maybe this a Deep State conspiracy to make us all buy 4K monitors. 😉🤣 Could the spacing be a configuration option/parameter. Maybe someone likes the space and easy readability. Personally I prefer in tools like this efficient use of the real estate.
  17. Hi, My simple suggestion would use Excel/LibreOffice Calc/Google Calc for this? Have one sheet with three columns: Software, Person, Is Admin. Then in another tab, you can create a Pivot table and organize your information by user or by software in the Pivot. -Juha
  18. One reason for using GeoSetter only for coordinates has been that I have wanted to put the GPS coordinates in my RAWs, but the leave the place names in .xmps. Tagging the places in Daminion is fast and, as you said, you can use also your own names where needed. -Juha
  19. Thank you for all your tips and tricks. I need to try them. I have normally tagged the places in Daminion.
  20. Hi Wilfried, I'm doing well. I haven't been active hear lately. I need to be better 🙂 I didn't know the possibility of selecting multiple images. Favorites I have used, that's nice for places where go photographing often. I was more thinking of use case where you have been on a short trip, and you have 100 images taken in different places. You first match you gpx file with your images and get GPS coordinates in place. What then? Can I select all the 100 images, that were taken in 5 different cities and 20 different suburbs/villages and get them reverse geotagged in one go? Or do I ha
  21. I don't know if it depends on your UI language, but I get the place names in English (as I'm running Windows in English), so my images would be in Finland, not in Suomi. Also, I have only found how you can do it to a single image, but I haven't found a way to assign the place names to a group of images. Maybe @WilfriedB or @Uwe can help here.
  22. One option could be to use the predefined Tags views. If you click the cog in the left hand pane you can see a list of views to the tag hierarchy. If you select Customize, you can create a new preset simply by writing a new name for the tag group and then selecting the tag hierarchies you want to show. E.g., your example on person and year, you would only select the People and Creation datetime tags. This is not exactly fulfilling your specs as the user can select the year and person independently.
  23. I think the logic here is that you can assign multiple values for those tags where the union feature is available. For other tags like place, you can only assign a single value. Juha
  24. Do you have the problem when importing the ORFs or is the problem also when you have the ORFs in your catalogue? I don't see the previews when importing the images, but when the images are imported they are visible in Daminion.
