Supernoob question: How do you "Favorite" an image?

Postby bersam » Sun Aug 20, 2017 2:21 pm

I was used to ACDSee's functionality of right-clicking an image and giving you the option to add it to a favorite folder -- heard XnViewMP had a similar function but I can't find it anywhere.

Sorry for being such a n00b.

you want to add the favorite folder of the image? Or add the image to your favorites?

add the image to my favorites.

the way it worked in acdsee was that acdsee had a "favorites" or "shortcuts" folder (depending on the version) and it would be located under "%appdata%\ACD Systems\ACDSee\ -- to this folder, all acdsee would do was to copy a .lnk of the image you wanted to "favorite" and save it in that folder

wonder if xnview has something like that -- only thing I've been able to find is how to favorite a whole folder, but that's not good for me, as was looking for a quick way to access all my references across several folders in a single favorite folder.

there is no such thing, but you can use perhaps the tag system?

Guess I can, I was just hoping I didn't need to -- tagging two thousand or so files among tens of thousands, across two hundred folders is gonna take me forever... oh well.. :|

Thanks, bersam!

I have access to ACDSee Pro 8 and among all my photo software this is the first time I've found a way to save links in a spesific folder and later on use this list by other programs. E.g. for slideshow of pictures located in several folders.
Yes I know it is possible to do this by XnView - by tags and filters - but not simple shortcuts (780 bytes) available by XnView, FastStone Viewer and other software. (Yes, I know it's possible to do this by Win Explorer but these shortcuts are 7 times bigger).

ACDSee, Management modus; Mark several pictures and >File >Add to Shortcuts
My folder is C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\ACD Systems\ACDSee\Shortcuts
No problem to make subfolder for spesific slideshow + +.
