Re: learning metadata storage methods for category/comment

It isn't a problem to ask. :) ...but please write a little bit clearer. I will try to guide you: - Forget what we discussed. - I will ask you. You will do exams now :) - We will advance in small steps. 1. Think that we have TWO separate engines: 1.a. One which writes/reads to/from files. 1.b. One wh...

Import & Sort : Move & Batch Convert

Import & Sort could be a very sought and powerfull feature by photojournalists / news photographers, however it lacks few things in order to be really usefull for the (by far) most used workflow: downloading the images from a memory card / camera: 1. Almost nobody should use „Copy” as trasfer method...

Re: learning metadata storage methods for category/comment

Read this: https://www.xnview.com/wiki/index.php/Cataloging_Features_in_XnView_MP Besides that: "descript.ion" is legacy - a very old internet standard from the age of BBSes. It has its merits tho.

Re: Create new folder

Win7 x64 - MP 0.93b1 x64, Dark Theme (if matters) :

It doesn't select the name of the folder. I need to press Ctrl+A for this.

EDIT: hmmm... Perhaps it matters: In View menu | View As.. is Thumbnails + Filenames.

Re: Search with excluding categories

...of course, by default the 3-state checkbox will be 'Grayed' by default. not too complicated for standard user?? Nope. We use this paradigm in our programs which are used by VERY standard users (or even worse - no offense intended, some of the users of the programs which we make (develop) see the...

Re: Search with excluding categories

...also don't forget to test the "Match" drop-down for "Any" and "All" predicates (that is AND and OR) in the case of the tri-state checkbox.

Re: Search with excluding categories

- checked: IN (included) - not checked: NOT IN (excluded) - grayed: - doesn't matter - so a 3-states checkbox? Yes. This is the standard behavior in any such filtering engine. For the checked ones you will gather the IDs / PK (primary keys) put comma between them and add them in a SQL IN predicate....

Re: 0.92: Can't drag in browser mode if there are marked files

Yes, I hit this often enough. Basically we cannot drag & drop some selected files if other files are tagged.

Re: How can I make the auto level/contrast work better?

It would be a very, very, very nice thing to have it in Batch Convert tho. OK so Photolemur has .8bf file So I guess it can be added to XnViewMP but as you said can it also be added to XnConvert and if how No, It cannot be added to Batch Convert (inside or outside of XnView) and I think that is a l...

Re: How can I make the auto level/contrast work better?

I wonder if it could be used as a plugin to Xn.... I know that it works as a plugin with lightroom and photoshop In XnView double-click on a photo. Then go to Image \ Adobe Photoshop Plugin... and press "Configure" to add it. It would be a very, very, very nice thing to have it in Batch Convert tho.

Re: [Discussion] Does XnviewMP need keywords additionally to categories?

1. generates confusion (yes, I know from ACDSee & other packages) 2. slows down the DB quite a bit because the keywords are stored as text and not as reference. Even if they are stored as FKeys, because the keywords aren't constrained the foreign table will grow a lot. IMHO a workflow improvement (y...
