Thanks Bill.  I thought the default for Thumbnails & Previews was set to correctly but somehow the "create full screen previews" box became unchecked.  So that should solve the problem.

Hi,
I've made a couple catalogs for a client in E.M. to for them to use with E.M. Reader.  The older images in the catalog render fine in Media View, but all the newer images I added recently only show in thumbnail size (or smaller) when viewed in Media View.  The source files are 45MB and they all render fine in my E.M. catalog.  Again - the problem is with my client viewing the files in E.M. Reader.  Any ideas out there? 
Thanks.

Appreciate your response Roelof.  The annotations were probably already synched, but I'll try again and see if that was the issue.
Best wishes.

EM2 + Mac OS 10.6.8

Hi,
I switched source hard drives for my images so created a new catalog by Resetting Paths.  Unfortunately, a significant number of the paths didn't reset and the only way they would was one at a time (which took a lot of time). 
So when that happened with another catalog I thought it'd be better to start fresh by creating a new catalog and importing the images.  Unfortunately when I did that the jpegs & tiffs imported fine by the NEFs didn't display thumbnails. So I used Rebuild Item for the NEFs and the thumbnails displayed.  But the problem is the keywords on the NEFs don't show up and Synch Annotations didn't work, even one at a time.  The keywords, which were generated on EM, are on the source files.
Any ideas?

Thanks Ian and John,
Here's the reply I got from PhaseOne on this:

The D7000 files are not compatible with Expression Media even if they can be rendered by Apple image core.

The support for the D7000 will be available in the next release.
Unfortunatly we can not give a release date at this point.

6  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / online stock catalog via E.M. export on: February 27, 2011, 04:26:36 PM
Hi.  I'd really appreciate some suggestions for software that will enable me to either post my stock photo catalog onto my website or onto a third party's website.   

I'm primary looking for some kind of system where editors could go to my website and use a keyword search to find, view and select images for publication.  The system doesn't need to include access to source files  - clients could contact me for those.

More specifically, I'm hoping to find a program or a service that offers:
1. The ability to easily export apx. 9,000 image files and keywords from an Expression Media catalog.
2. That ability for images to be seen by search engines, via the keywords.  All of the images in my catalog are keyworded, but most don't have titles yet (they just have caption numbers), so it's important that the keywords be seen by search engines.
3.  An advanced keyword search, similar to Expression Media's, with multiple keyword searches and hopefully "or" and "and" options.
4.  The ability to view larger preview images (in addition to the requisite thumbnails).
5.  A way for clients to select images, into a shopping cart or some other system, that would avoid them having to manually make a list of the caption numbers of the images that they're interested in. (Not essential.)
6.  A system for ordering prints via a third party lab (similar what ImageQuix or Smugmug offer) would be nice, but not essential.

Of course, it'd also be nice if this is a user friendly program (or service) both for me and for my clients, that it looks great and doesn't cost a lot.

Anyone know of anything out there that would do the job?
THANKS!
Leon

8  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / EM2 not displaying most Nikon D7000 NEF thumbnails on: February 16, 2011, 06:35:38 PM
Just added images from a Nikon D7000 to a catalog and most of the NEFs are just displayed as the generic file symbol - no thumbnail.  The thumbnails on about 10% of them do appear though.  When I double click on the files with the missing thumbnails the images open in Photoshop as usual, so the paths are set correct.

Any ideas?

I just upgraded from a Power Mac to a Mac Pro and am reinstalling software.  The iView disk I installed is iView Media Pro 3.1.2  Is there a newer update that I can download, and if so, where do I find it?
Thanks.
11  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / Re: Two problems - resetting paths not working and Light Table is cropping image on: June 06, 2010, 09:30:35 AM
I could see the source files in the folders I was trying to reset the paths to, but it still didn't work.  Unfortunately, at this point I don't remember which catalog I was having this problem with, so I'll have to wait and see when the problem pops up again.

Thanks.
12  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / Re: Two problems - resetting paths not working and Light Table is cropping images. on: May 17, 2010, 10:08:29 AM
The Reset Path dialog box asking whether I want to Accept All or Cancel All appears.  When I click on Accept All the status bar appears for a short time then the process ends (as if complete) but the images remain unsynched to the source files. 

Also noticed that after when searching for the source images to select, after clicking on Reset Paths, the source files are grayed out (and therefor not selectable).

Thanks.

OK, figured out how to keep the Light Table from cropping images but still need no solution for the problem with resetting paths.  Any ideas?
14  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / Two problems - resetting paths not working and Light Table is cropping images. on: May 14, 2010, 08:51:05 PM
Hi,
I'm a long time iView/EM user - two problems have just come up that I'd appreciate help with.

1.  About 50% of the images in one of my catalogs show as "Original media file not available."  Unfortunately resetting the paths is not working.  Any ideas?  (BTW - I have successfully reset paths in the past with other catalogs, so not sure why it isn't working in this case.  The source files are definitely accessible.)

2.  When I view several images at a time in the Light Table it cuts off part of the images.  How do I get it back to where the Light Table shows the images without cropping?

Many thanks?

And to add one more thing - it seems like the hanging problem is worse when the external hard drive (containing the source files) is turned on.
