The problem may be that the file times, as stored by the file system, have changed. To check this out, it's best to run experiments with just one or two files.

Thanks for the suggestion. This is a complication I had planned to omit, but I will give it some more thought.

(I think it can also be done in the Lightroom Import panel, right?)

Not supported by II. Is supported by Ingestamatic.

Just posted the first beta. I told everyone who asked that I had no plans for a Windows version, which was true, but Ingestamatic was so well-liked on the Mac that I made some plans.

Very new, so use cautiously. Most everything implemented except geotagging, image viewer, and raw formats other than ARW, CR2, DNG, NEF, ORF, PEF, RAF, RW2, and SR2.

That macro refers to the name set for the user on the system preferences panel.

But you can also just type your name in the setting panel.

Gary--

I just tested this with Ingestamatic, and all metadata is OK when an ingested raw (with XMP sidecar) is opened in PS CS5.

9  Software Discussions / ImageIngester and ImageVerifier / Ingestamatic Beta 4 - now with geotagging on: November 03, 2011, 08:16:50 AM
See my earlier post describing Ingestamatic, a new ingester for MacOS. I've just posted Beta 4, which adds geotagging. It's more complete and robust than the system in ImageIngester. For example, tracks you load can be viewed on a map, and Ingestamatic remembers them so you don't have to reload them each time you ingest.

Here's the download page:

http://basepath.com/Ingestamatic-beta.html

This beta expires at the end of November. I expect I'll release the product in a few days, at a price of $19.99. There will also be a demo that times out in 2 weeks.

If you try Ingestamatic, please give me some feedback, either by email or right here.

Ingestamatic is a new ingesting app, for MacOS 10.6 and 10.7 only, that I've just released today as a very early beta. (No Windows version is planned.)

You can download it for free at:

http://basepath.com/Ingestamatic/download/Ingestamatic.app-1.00B1.zip

This beta expires at the end of Nov. 2011. When I release it, it will sell for $20. (ImageIngester will remain at $40.)

Obviously, Ingestamatic is greatly influenced by my experience over the past half-dozen years or so with ImageIngester, but it's not an upgrade or successor.
I'll continue to develop, support, and sell ImageIngester for MacOS and Windows indefinitely.

Here's the thinking behind Ingestamatic:

For all its rich feature set, ImageIngester suffers from a serious inconvenience: All metadata applies to all ingested images--you can't set the caption or keywords, or anything else, on an image-by-image basis. I sometimes ingest several times from the same card to get around this.

Nearly as inconvenient is the time it takes to show the thumbnails. I use the thumbnail viewer all the time, and I know it takes ImageIngester a lot longer to bring up thumbnails than other Mac apps take.

Fixing these two limitations in ImageIngester would be very difficult, practically impossible.

So, I decided to rethink how ingestion ought to work, and came up with Ingestamatic. If you try it out you'll see that's it's very unlike ImageIngester.

Here are the main differences; there are lots of minor ones:

1. As I mentioned, you can enter metadata for all the images to be ingested, for any group of them that you select, or for them one-at-a-time. You just type into a form in the main window. No metadata panels or quick fields. In fact, you can use Ingestamatic just fine without messing with the Setting Panel at all.

2. Thumbnails come up almost instantly, and zoom instantly, too. The thumbnail viewer is now the main interface, taking up most of the main window.

3. Many complicated ImageIngester features, important to only a small fraction of users, have been tossed: the database, multi-camera shoot, multi-card ingestion, GPS tagging, disc burning, number-range folders, ACR/Develop settings, auto-ingest, auto-eject, client/project/card, quick fields, partitioning, post-conversion backup, excluded extensions, and verification. (Of these, only GPS tagging is on my list of things to think about for Ingestamatic. It's NOT my goal to put ImageIngester features into Ingestamatic.)

4. The Ingestamatic user interface is greatly simplified over ImageIngester. There is only one kind of preset, instead of 8. You never get those annoying warnings about unsaved presets; if you change something, the change is automatically saved. Some options have been wired to a fixed choice; for example, metadata is always written into JPEGs.

5. The above notwithstanding, Ingestamatic isn't a subset of ImageIngester; in many ways it's more powerful. For example, it has a lookup macros, so you can translate camera serial numbers to names, for incorporation into folder paths, or translate extensions to categories such as "raw", "movie", and "jpg". It has a preview window so you can see what the metadata will look like for each image. There's an "index" macro that starts at 1 for each ingestion, something I'm often asked for. If you shoot raw+JPEG, you no longer discover that the XMP sidecar was removed too soon; each now gets its metadata appropriately. Lots of other improvements and enhancements, too.

You can read the Ingestamatic help file online (lots of screenshots):

http://basepath.com/Ingestamatic/help/

or go ahead and try the beta.

If you're running MacOS 10.6 or 10.7 (Snow Leopard or Lion) and don't need all the exotic features of ImageIngester, you'll find Ingestamatic way better. No contest. If you're on Windows or need the features missing in Ingestamatic, you're still OK: Just use ImageIngester.

Enjoy!

Yes.

"... it's just a matter of installing II on the Mac and then overwriting the default database file with the one from my Windows machine..."

Make sure ImageVerifier isn't running when you do this, and do it before you accumulate any hashes on the new machine.

Maturity has been raised to Medium, since there have been many downloads with no problems reported.
