Hey All,

I'm a convert first from iMatch, then to Media Pro.  My files have got dot limited supplementalcategories fields in them, which Media Pro recognized okay and created hierarchical keywords, but LightRoom doesn't.

Is there a way to:

1) Get LightRoom to create the hierarchical keywords? I've parsed out a list of the keywords using exiftool, but trying to do an import in Lightroom has thus far been an exercise in fruition.
2) Assign the keywords as defined in the supplementalcategories?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

thanks

Chris

Greetings,

Daminion 3.3 with more than 50 improvements was released recently.
http://blog.daminion.net/news/daminion-3-3-released

Major improvements:

  • Duplicate documents can be located and removed quickly by expanding the “Saved Searches” tag and clicking on the “Duplicates” value.
  • You can describe your content with new tags like Scene, Subject Code, and Intellectual Genre.
  • You can protect your tag taxonomy against screw-ups. Tags can be locked by admin for changes – users may assign or remove existing tags, but they can’t change the tag structure.
  • Synonyms and Tag Groups allow you to reduce the number of visible tags, making it easier to navigate through the tag tree. You can select the “Images” tag group to find JPEGs, TIFFs, PNGs and other images – you don’t have to check each of them individually.
  • Rendering speed of large images, especially TIFF images, in Full Screen mode has significantly increased, and thumbnails for shared catalogs are also displayed much faster.
  • New files are imported up to 5 times faster than before into the large server based catalogs
  • You can now sort items manually when a single collection tag is selected and, prepare them in a specific order when necessary for things like publications or presentations.
  • A new Expired License Date field will enable you to avoid expensive penalties for using images after their license dates have expired.
  • We have also added an experimental option whereby you can find all publications of a particular image, or images very similar to it, on the internet.
  • The “Compare Items” window has been significantly improved, and selecting the right file version is much easier than before.

I routinely use a clone of the database and Lightroom 5 to travel etc. I just clone it back to main computer, perhaps tell LR where to find the images and all is good.
Now the main computer shows the database and folders fine but collection thumbnails are looking for the external drive instead of the main computer.
ie if I click "show in finder" in a collection, the message is that it can't find the source and gives the external drive as what it's looking for.
I've restarted, optimized the catalog and let it find the source files again. No change.
Any thoughts?
Thanks

It was reported today on the http://www.loopinsight.com/2014/06/27/apple-stops-development-of-aperture/ website that Aperture is being discontinued by Apple when Yosemite is released.  I talked with a couple of the top contributors to the Aperture and iPhoto Apple forums and they heard that the info was legit but not officially confirmed by Apple. We'll have to wait and see.

If true the Aperture is going the way of iDVD, iWeb and the Dodo bird.   Sad

Maybe not.  See my post in the http://thedambook.com/smf/index.php?topic=5054.0 topic regarding the future of Aperture. Sad

Finally IMatch 5 is released. After stopping support for IDimager I was looking for another software and test IMatch 5 beta . For me this is one of the most sophisticated and smart software. I am using it not only as a Photo-DAM-Software. I uses instead of Windows-Explorer, Music-DAM-Software.

If other people are still searching a DAM-Software; Trial-Version can be downloaded: http://www.photools.com

Hi,

Can you open the damaged file with another program like Photoshop?

Before assuming the problem is with my scanner, I would test if it might be something about the transfer operation from drive to drive.

Since the problem occurred after copying the file, try running a file-verification tool on it (I use ImageVerifier) before and after copying the file. Or try doing a validated transfer in the first place. What results do you get? Does the problem re-occur?

I recently scanned my college diploma, using my epson perfection scanner, at 600 dpi, with both Adobe RGB 48 bit and sRGB 24 bit, and scanned it as tif files. These raw scans were scanned to my macs internal rotational 500 gb standard hard drive. Both quick look and preview have no problems viewing these files.

I then copied these onto my macs internal 240 gb solid state hard drive and a thumb drive, and tried to view the files with quick look, and preview, and both had trouble opening them, saying the file extension is not supported or the file might be damaged. I have tried changing the file extension name, but this does not help.

my mac has dual solid state and rotational hard drive, running 10.8.5.

I am totally baffled as to what the problem might be, I have scanned a few other certificates like this in the past, with no problems, now suddenly there is. It is frustrating, I do not want to have to rescan but if that is what is needed, I will.

anybody have any idea what might be wrong? I dont want to continue scanning other content if my scanner is bad, but it seems I am facing a time consuming process of trying to find the problem, be it the files themselves or hardware problems.

Sossity
