Automatic database

Post by UrbanCoyote » Sun Jul 15, 2012 6:11 am

Hi,

I was just wondering is it possible to get the categories to automatically update based on exif tags? Currently with .51 the categories will only update thumbnails and keywords/categories once you visit the folder.

I have quite a few pictures and folders underneath My Pictures.

If possible it would be nice to get an option to add a single folder then Xnview scans and automatically adds tags and thumbanils to ALL child folders underneath!

Sweet thanks!

This feature coupled with the ability to search and combine tags.....well it would rival Lightroom in terms of photo organisation! 8)

It's actualy possible with a trick (but need a lot of memory if you have a lot of picture on these folder) :
Right click on the directory, then select view all file on subfolders (or something like this)

Regards
