Similar problem (also on a Mac), but this time it's the divider below the catalog sets window that won't move, whatever I do. Tried your solution but unfortunately it doesn't help

Hi - just installed EM2 on a new Mac after years of happily using IVMP. 2 questions - I seem to be unable to move the 'hierarchical keywords' divider downwards - it's stuck at the top so that I can barely see the 'catalog fields'. Next, I can't change the colour of folders and sub-folders set to auto-update, as could be done in IVMP, so there seems to be no way of confirming whether they are updating. Has anyone else come across these problems and found a solution?

Hi everybody. So far, I've found that Dr Brown's Image Processor Pro is the most convenient way to resize a folder full of images (to create web sized JPGs, for example).

I say most convenient, however on my system Image Processor Pro won't process more than about 250 images at once. It get a "No images Processed. Perhaps Empty folder?" error (not verbatim). This number of images that can be processed varies, perhaps with RAM usage, but I'm not sure. Bridge CS6s canned Image Processor can handle all ~2900 images at once.

I'm using Bridge and Photoshop CS6 on a modern Windows 8 machine (16GB RAM, Intel Core i7 3930k CPU @ 3.2GHz) and a separate ~200GB scratch disk)
Whatever method I use to process this many images via Bridge+PS (Bridge Batch of my own scripts, Bridge Image Processor, Dr Brown's image Processor Pro) takes a long time to start (several minutes to bring up the batch/script dialogue then tens of minutes for PS to start working), and is potentially pretty unstable whilst processing. This is related to how many images I have selected to process. Is this standard behaviour?

On a related note, I have recorded several actions to batch common actions (such as adding a clipping path based on transparency). The trouble with some of these actions is that they won't work on all images (some have no transparency, in this example). These images remain open in PS, and eventually clog RAM and stall the process. Without delving into scripting, can anyone think of any ways to clear out these non-processed images?

Hi Emile,

I don't know of an automated solution for you problem. I believe the best way to proceed would be to investigate the migration procedures in the Dam Book and/or dpBestflow's Migration writeup   This will certainly take a good chunk of time but if you put in a little bit of time each day it shouldn't be too painful. Regardless of the workflow you use to get the job done be sure that you incorporate validated transfers using SyncBack, ChronoSync or a similar application.

After more than a decade of shooting digitally, I have literally 100s of CDs and DVDs containing archived images that I want to back up to hard drives.  I can't imagine doing this one CD/DVD at a time.  I started doing it, and it's just too mind numbing.

Does anyone have a recommendation of how to automate this process? 

I am willing to buy the necessary hardware if there is a hardware solution someone can recommend. 

Thanks in advance for any and all advice and recommendations.

Daminion Software, have released version 2.0 of their desktop client/server DAM system of the same name.  The new features include:

  • Improved export (no longer strips metadata and a preset editor)
  • Administrator control over import settings
  • Dropbox integration
  • Export metadata to CSV

There are some other bug fixes and smaller enhancements such as improved XMP support.  Taken collectively, these appear to be quite wide ranging in terms of general improvements.  This is from the Dropbox integration write-up on their blog.

“This experimental feature allows you to share your images with various devices such as Tablets, Macs, Mobiles or the Web. For example, you can select 50 Camera RAW images, drag them to a tag named Publish\Dropbox\MyIPADPresentation and all your images will be converted to iPAD-friendly JPEG format with 2000px resolution that can be found in the Dropbox\MyIPADPresentation. All image conversions and image optimizations will be performed on the fly.”

^Looks like a nice projector.  How are you getting on with it.

Does anybody have any experience with current high resolution monitors?  I'm thinking of around 27", resolution 2560.

I use a Dell 2711 at the moment, but I need another monitor for another workstation.  The 2711 is no longer current, and there seem to be more monitors around in this segment nowadays.

Good colour reproduction is important, although probably not quite as crucial as it is for photographers.

Any thoughts or experience appreciated.

Does anybody have any advice on the best types or makers of SSD at the moment?

I've used Intels before without problem, but I'm aware that it's a relatively fast moving technology so things may well have moved on.

Thanks for the suggestions.  In the meantime I had contacted two well known photographers (including Peter K.) who do a lot of lectures and av presentations, and got advice from both of them.  I ordered an Epson Powerlite 1850W - a reconditioned one directly from Epson.  Mark Weidman
