Uwe Posted December 4, 2019 Report Share Posted December 4, 2019 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.
