Re: Copy/backup catalog info by folder

I'm getting a bit confused about what problem you are trying to solve. Do you have multiple copies online but only a single backup? I tend to backup entire folders anyway but I don't often duplicate image files. Sorry, I indeed had two different use cases in mind without making it clear: A) Ratings...

Re: Copy/backup catalog info by folder

You can (and I strongly recommend) writing the ratings metadata to the image file (or a sidecar according to your preference). I guess this is a "all or nothing" decision - use XMP inside the image or in a sidecar? Or could I write some XMP info into the image file while having other parts being wr...

Copy/backup catalog info by folder

Is it possible to somehow copy (rather than move) catalog info to another folder (e.g. backup folder on NAS)? I keep backups of my images on another location which is not permanently accessible for XnView (i.e. on a NAS or external hard drive). When moving or copying images there, I would also like ...

https access to forum

Hi,

could https access to the forums, or at least to a dedicated login page be set up, so we don't need to send the login name/password unencrypted?

Thanks, Lars.

Re: 0.86 (and 0.87 beta2): Geohack action disabled and GPS indicator missing

you need to update the catalog, 0.86 doesn't save GPS info into catalog... Oh, ok! Tested: removed one folder with affected images from the catalog, then used beta 2 and opened the same folder - all GPS info available, everything fine in beta 2 :D So for folders where I have other info (rating etc....

Re: 0.86 (and 0.87 beta2): Geohack action disabled and GPS indicator missing

Ok, "rebuild thumbnail" sort of fixes the issue, but only by actually changing the file itself. Therefore I'd consider this a workaround rather than a fix. I'd rather not need to rebuild thumbnails in thousands of images, which is time-consuming in itself and would require me to update any backup as...

Browse to customizable URL with GPS lat/lon

I'd like to have another context menu action next to "show in GeoHack", for which the URL containing GPS lat/lon values can be configured. An option for the lat/lon format would also be useful to support different services. Use Case: I often use the GeoHack with coordinates from an image to go to pe...

XnView MP 0.86 (also tested 0.87 beta 2) 64 bit Windows 7 Pro 64 bit For most of my jpeg images with GPS coordinates, the action to show the position in GeoHack isn't enabled and the GPS indicator in the image browser is missing - even though the GPS data is shown in EXIF tab, the GPS tab shows the ...

Crossfading speed in slideshow

Hi,

I really like the crossfading function for slideshows, but I'd like it to have the transition a bit faster. Any chance to make this configurable? An .ini setting would perfectly suffice :)

Regards, Lars.

Re: slideshow should scroll panorama pictures

Hi, just want to note that Dirk is not alone here with that wish - this would be a *very* nice feature! :) Some way of automatically determining what pictures should be considered panoramic is essential, but IMHO not too hard: just add an option for an aspect ratio limit, e.g. anything wider than 3:...

Slide show like real slides: zoom into square target area

When showing a slide show of images in full screen I miss the following: I want all images to appear in the same way as they would if they were real slides - all pictures appear at the same size regardless of their orientation. With real slides this is naturally the case, the projection area is squa...
