Import 310 directories

Post by elfroggio » Wed Jul 31, 2019 9:00 pm

Linux Opensuse Leap 15.1.

How can I import 310 directories/folders? I have a total of 48,000 images in there

All the images are underneath the /drive-b/photos/ directory. /drive-b/ is a 4TB internal drive /dev/sdb which is separate from the rest of the system.

Image


Thanks

These photos do contain keywords ? iptc ? xmp ? xmp companion ?
Do you have already created some of these keywords as categories in xnviewmp ?
Did you backup some settings, categories, xnview.db ... before adding so much photos ?

If yes, go to settings metadata, mark the first checkbox (import xmp .. iptc .. to categories ), unmark the second (export)
go to settings catalog, click on "add folders" and choose the directory that contains your photos to be added ...
it will take a few hours to read 48000 files


When finised, you'll be able to use categories filter.

in settings metadata you can now unmark "import ..." and set "export ..." , so keywords will be added when you check a category.

( If there are no keywords at all in these photos, you can use ExifTool to copy folder names into keywords, but it's a bit tricky ...)

I would say that about half of them have keywords and they are stored in .cr2.xmp and .raf.xmp

I have a spreadsheet with all my keywords. I could even create them by hand if "really" needed. There are less 350 keywords in all.

I tried this twice and it crashed about a third of the way through. The second time, I deleted all the xnviewmp config before trying to import again.

Code: Select all

GFF :: LoadThumbnail : 2

LOAD BITMAP </drive-b/photos/gimps/coren-stan-20180727-a002-5x7-vertical.xcf>

Actually, there are 2 files:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1vDHCf ... hA-J5VzHc1

and

https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nsoyE ... AoZl5Gh5gx

If XnV can't read them , what about ignoring them completely?

Thanks

Xn can read .xcf. Are you using 0.93.1? I can't reproduce the crash

I'm using Opensuse Leap 15.1 and the crash was with

Code: Select all

xnview_mp.glibc2.17-x86_64.appimage
downloaded from: https://download.xnview.com/XnView_MP.g ... 4.AppImage

I even told it to ignore that directory (with most of my gimps/xcf files) and it still crashed.

Is there a way to tell it to ignore some file extensions?

Thanks

Right, strange, i can only reproduce with this AppImage, not the TGZ or deb

You can add .xcf in Settings>Filelist>Custom filter - Exclude

Adding ".xcf" in 'Settings>Filelist>Custom filter - Exclude' doesn't work, it still crashes xn

I don't see, I did: but there's nothing allow me to select images without the gimps xcf. When I press enter while highlighting custom: nothing happens

Here you need to check the 'show as thumbnail' for exclude
