Re: Filter for a category does not select sub-categories, why?

Well, if selecting a given category (p.e. "insects") does not select sub-categories (i.e. "Mantis"), there is no really any hierarchical structure in the tags. A hierarchy implies, precisely, that if I set "Mantis" as a tag for a photo, "insects" is automatically and silently applied. Otherwise, I w...

Re: XnView-compatible Android app to tag Metadata

Yes, jpeg and any other format. Currently I use fstop (http://www.fstopapp.com/) to tag the images I take with the phone, but I was thinking on using fstop or another app to also tag images that I've taken with the camera through a pendrive and an adaptor. That way I could take advantage of commutin...

XnView-compatible Android app to tag Metadata

Is there a (recommended) Android app to tag photos, which would be later become incorporated to XnView as metadata?
Thanks

Apply image/map tools to view (not saving) images

Is it possible to set a given image/map operation to a set of images without actually saving new versions?
That is, just apply, for example, image/map/automatic level for viewing.
Thanks

Filter for a category does not select sub-categories, why?

Assume I have a photo labelled with sub-category "Mantis" within "Insects" (using the menu "Categories"). If I use "Categories FIlter" to click "Insects", I do not get the photo labelled "Mantis" selected, why? (using XnView MP MacOSX Version 0.87 64bits (Sep 5 2017)) I guess there is something fund...

Set category: time to complete operation?

When we select a large number of pictures and want to set a common category to all of them (i.e., trip name for all pictures of a given trip), how long we have to wait to make sure the category has been set to all pictures? There is no "OK" button and/or message telling the user to wait or notificat...

Re: Thumbails and external drives

Yes. It is a very useful feature in case the user has photos in different external drives. Currently users can search across external drives thanks to have the db on the internal hard drive but not see the thumbnails. If thumbnails were (optionally) stored on the internal drive also, the user could ...

Re: Thumbails and external drives

Is this a feature that you contemplate to introduce in forthcoming versions?
I really miss it compared to lightroom asset management tool.

Re: Duplicated pictures

in your db i see that you have same filename but for 2 different folders "/Volumes/LACIE1TB/FOTOS/201609_FOTOS_TESIS_JOAN/" & "@201609_FOTOS_TESIS_JOAN/" It seems that you have changed the base path? You need to delete one of them in settings>Catalog ok. What does the "@" mean? Does it represent th...

Re: Duplicated pictures

strange, and if you use context menu 'open containing folder' on these 2 duplicates, it's the same source? If I select 'open containing folder' for each thumbnail of any pair in both cases the folder is the same: /Volumes/LACIE1TB/FOTOS/201609_FOTOS_TESIS_JOAN/ which is the one listed in Properties...

Display thumbnails of photos in external drives even if drive is not connected

I think that, when having photos in external drives, being able to see the thumbnails even if the external drive is not connected would be very convenient: you can search, visualize the thumbnails, select the photo(s) and then connect the appropriate external drive to display the photo. This feature...

Thumbails and external drives

Once I have catalogued a folder from an external drive, I was assuming that thumbnails would be displayed even if the external drive is not connected, but now I see that I'm kind of "losing" thumbnails: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_LsZU5NlOztVWFpbU1YcENfcnc So my question: is it possible to s...

Re: name of external drive in different computers

If the base path of your pictures folder are not the same, you should use 'base path' settings>catalog I do not understand: What should I write in in the box named "Base path of your pictures"? Should I write 'base path'? or /Volumes/LACIET1B/FOTOS which is where my fotos live? At this moment I hav...
