    Folder Moves

    "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". - it'a a bug and has to be fixed by Daminion. Relink: If you move a folder outside Daminion to another place without changing the files/metadata inside the folder (the folder can be a new disk drive) Daminion has to update the database (exchange the address of the old folder, e.g. "d:\old_folder\my_photos" with the new folder address, e.g. "x:\this_is_the_new_folder_of_my_photos". Rescan: has more than one option to use: update of changes made outside of Daminion, e.g. by ExifTool. Example: I scan documents and enter the name YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS.TIF in the scan program BUT the EXIF:DateTimeOriginal of the scanned document is the date of the scan - today. Then I use in Daminion the "Open with..." action to update the EXIF:DateTimeOriginal with the name of the file (-overwrite_original "-EXIF:datetimeoriginal<filename" "-EXIF:createdate<filename" "-XMP:createdate<filename" "-XMP:datecreated<filename" "-XMP:datetimeoriginal<filename" ). Now I can call either the "Read Tags from File" (if only one document) or the "Rescan Folder" action to update the Daminion database. There is an already existing folder in Daminion and you moved outside Daminion new files into this folder - call "Rescan Folder" to import the new files regards, Uwe
  3. Hi Miklos, there is a strange metadata tag for the State: State %7jnbapuim4$lwk:eb4679c0-4f0b-47a5-96b3-96ffecadab70 in the photo Passerelle_des_Aguesses.jpg not shown by Daminion but somehow handled. The other photo doesn't have a State Tag. That leads to two entries in the Places: one with the State Tag the other without. Try to delete the wrong State Tag or enter some State tag in Daminion save it and delete it. Then both photos are assigned to Belgium, without State Tag, City Liege and the two Locations. Regards, Uwe
  4. Hi Miklos, there aren't any metadata in both JPG photos. Regards, Uwe
  5. Hello, please compare both screenshots made from the same file in the same catalog. One is made on the main PC (1920x200, with search field and close botton on the bottom) the other on a laptop (1366x768, without bottom bar). Regards, Uwe
  6. Hello, if the client works with a shared catalog read of custom tags from the file works. If the same client works with a local catalog the same custom tags are not read from the file. regards, Uwe
  7. Hello, creation of a custom tag format Text hierachical works BUT there is not hierarchy view in the Properties Panel for the new created custom tag. Daminion 6.3 build 2033. You've got a video by Skype. regards, uwe
  8. Hello, not using Links or Groups - you can skip this article - or maybe you can think about using Links and Groups now 😉 I use Links between the original "parent" item (e.g RAW format, GPX track file) and its "child" items (e.g for photobooks TIF format, TIF/JPG file created by GPX Viewer/screenshot). For panoramas I use the Groups to keep them together: the final TIF panorama on top and the original RAWs as part of the group. Some stitching software (e.g. PTGui, Hugin) creates its own project files which can be part of the group. If the final TIF panorama is used in a photobook - it's additionally linked to its "child" photobook TIF item. Automatic backups of my catalogs every day 22:00 by batch file. Automatic backups of the files every day (full and incremental). This is hopefully save enough to be prepared if the worst case happens: total system crash and a reset my landscape from scratch. The restore of the catalog backup restores the Links and Groups - everything is ok. The gap for me is: also the backups can be destoyed or there is a bug in the backup. The Links and Groups are not part of the metadata of the file and can get lost. I can't select Links and Groups in the Tag Panel because they are not "regular" tags. Do you need such a selection? This was the reason to think about a solution that fits for me described in the attached PDF. If someone has additional/better/different remarks and/or solutions, please feel free to share it here in this post. If you think this is an theoretical subject - you are welcome too. Regards, Uwe Save Group and Link relations to the metadata of file.pdf
  9. Hi Daria, I thought that the quotation marks "define" the included notation as flat text string independend on the "long text tag" format or "hierachy structured tag" format of the destination tag. Regards, Uwe
  10. hello, is there any option to save e.g. the folder path "\\ServerName\Test\TestCatalog" as a flat text value of a Tag, e.g. a Custom Tag "ABC", format "text"? At the moment it is converted to: ABC ServerName Test TestCatalog and not to ABC->"\\ServerName\Test\TestCatalog" Regards, Uwe
  11. Hello, this setting is on the global level of the Admin Panel. At the moment I make some tests and uses a test catalog. The result is: all tags are unapproved and I have EITHER to reset the setting in the Admin Panel as long as I make the test ( in between other users can import unapproved tags to another catalog) OR this setting is on the level of the catalog and not on this global level OR there is an action to approve all unapproved tags in one step without to select the single tags in the Tag Panel. Regards, Uwe
  12. Hello, there sems to be someting wrong with the Tag Preset "%folder\%filename" and the created Custom Tag. Regards, Uwe
  13. Hi Egon, my question: does the time stamp above correspond to any other date/time metadata in the file (file creation date, File Modification Date/Time, etc) imported to the new catalog? Regards, Uwe
  14. Update: I found the reason: this is my folder structure: Drive X: Daminion thumbnails Test (name of the catalog) 0 ... F (here are the thumbnail folders and the thumbnails created by Daminion) midsize preview Video (here are the video previews, set in the Admin Panel->Catalogs->Actions->Edit->Folder to store video previews) The action Catalog Optimize deletes the Video folder. But, if the folder Video is not a subfolder of the folder ...\Test -> Catalog Optimize doesn't delete the Video folder. A long way to find the reason. Now it has to be fixed or a check that the Video folder may not be a subfolder as shown above. regards, Uwe
  15. Hi. yes but which way we should go? Change the settings in the Daminion Preferences to "write to EXIF/IPTC/XMP - very slow" - not yet tested what means "very slow". The result is a changed RAW file. But DNG is also a RAW format originally created by some manufacturer and not from the Adobe DNG converter E.g. the initial DateTime is: 2019-10-26 10:24:25 the canged by Daminion: 2019-10-26 15:24:25 DxO PhotoLab3 ignores the DateTimeOriginal of the XMP sidecar file and read the Exif from the RAW file: 2019-10-26 10:24:25 Capture One V12 (depending on the setting in the Preferences) reads the DateTimeOriginal from the XMP sidecar file and not from the Exif of the RAW if the XMP sidecar exists Either: 2019-10-26 10:24:25 or 2019-10-26 15:24:25 depends on the settings darktable read the Exif DateTimeOriginal: 2019-10-26 10:24:25 in Photoshop CS6 the XMP DateTimeOriginal from the sidecar file is shown in the RAW tab as: <exif:DateTimeOriginal>2019-10-26T15:24:25</exif:DateTimeOriginal>, <photoshop:DateCreated>2019-10-26T15:24:25+02:00</photoshop:DateCreated> in Bridge CS6 it's shown as: 2019-10-26 15:24:25 and this time stamp is used to rename the file XnViewMP handles the XMP sidecar together with the RAW but ignore the XMP DateTimeOriginal in the sidecar file and read the EXIF DateTimeOriginal from the RAW Use Daminion->Export->CopytoFolder->JPEGOriginal->Rename (%date_%time-%ms.%ext) writes 2019-10-26 15:24:25 to the EXIF DateTimeOriginal of the JPG file regards, Uwe
