ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Separate configurations
« on: 2016-07-05 20:28:54 »
Thanks for that suggestion.  One of the major issues I have is the "make thumbnails automatically"  

I have about 4 or 5 different db files that I use, and some I want/need auto, but with others I find it undesirable.

Another drawback is the thumbnail size.  Again, different sizes for different data bases.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / SQL in searching
« on: 2016-07-05 20:24:02 »
I gave up trying anything with dates some time ago because this no longer works.

In the file I have (don't know if you are the creator of this) I have the following example:

tn.file_time < ^udate(2000/06/05) and tn.file_time > ^udate(1999/01/02)


tn.file_time >= ^udate(2001-03-01) and tn.file_time <= ^udate(2002-04-15)

The SQL "between" operator also works, so:

tn.file_time between ^udate(2001-07-01) and ^udate(2001-07-31)

The field name "tn.file_time" does not appear in the drop down list.  Trying the example with the field name "tn.file_time_iso gives me an error "no such function, udate"

This document is on the Cerious web site.  Is there an updated version?

Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / import/export

Ok, that opens another question.  How do I configure the database to accept "millions" of thumbnails.

Every time it reaches a 2 gig size, it begins to crash.  I know that there are two formats to choose from as well as "store as files".   However it's done so far has not let me get past the 2 gig size.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / thumbnail image
« on: 2016-07-01 09:36:11 »
I have a collection of video files which all open with the same announcement screen.  

As a result, I have a folder with over 100 identical thumbnails all pointing to different videos.

Is there a way to tell thumbs plus to look deeper into the video to pull out it's thumbnail?  Short of that, is there a way to substitute with a saved image file?

Is there a way to have separate properties for different files?

I want my file called "Brown Family" to open in the c:\pictures\brownfamily folder but I want the smith family file to open in the c:\pictures\smithfamily.

Also I want to control the auto thumbnail.  I may want one to auto create and another to wait for me to tell it to do so.

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / SQL in searching

When doing a search, there is a tab and an input box for SQL Statements.  At one time, I had a list of a number of squ statements that could be used,  These statements worked in earlier versions (I think it changed in v9)

Apparently either field names, or the actual SQL interpreted has changed and many of them no longer work.

Is there an updated file with this information?  Or is it actually a bug waiting to be fixed?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / import/export

When I export all or part of my database everything runs fine as normal.

However, when I try to import that txt file into another database I get an error saying "format error in file"

When will this be fixed

It would be nice if drag and drop would work for facebook.  It's a nice feature to be able to connect, but up/downloading pictures would be really nice.

When exporting a data base. it would be extremely helpful if I could designate one or more galleries to be exported and leave everything else alone.

Is there a version 11 on the near horizon?  If so, is there a "what's new" document that can be viewed?

So the original message is somewhat old, but I have almost the same issue.  Hopefully someone new will see this post and have an answer.

I have almost 100,000 photos in live photo gallery.  A major number of these have been tagged with the face recognition feature.

I need to migrate this data from the gallery to Thumbs plus v10.  Can it be done, and if so, how.

Are there any plans to incorporate face recognition into the next version of TPlus?

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / Reporting from v10
« on: 2015-07-16 19:08:54 »
Probably the same for previous versions, but here goes.

I need to produce a text only report listing file name, key words, some user fields, and annotation.

My preferred format would be in a tabular listing.  I could likely adjust the format the way i want if it could be exported to a spreadsheet.  

Also, one of my user fields is a link to web data.  Is there a way to have this active so that clicking on it will take the user to the correct page on line?

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / thumbnails in files
« on: 2015-07-16 18:41:51 »
I experimented a bit and here's what I found

If the thumbnail files are deleted, instead of a box with a big X, we're left with a solid black box.

Here's the good news.  The attached data (key words etc) are saved so that I can maintain my saved searches and galleries.

So, the last word here will be if someone has a way (short of removing thumbnails) to restore the cute red X. :)

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / thumbnails in files
« on: 2015-07-14 18:38:59 »
I am using v10, but I think the answer should be the same for either version.

As I delete files, or delete just the thumbnails, it appears that the thumbnail files don't go away.

Currently I have over 16 gigs of thumbnails for almost 1 million files.  

Do the thumbnails go away at any time?  What happens to the data (key words, annotations, etc) if I delete the thumbnail files.

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / Setting some defaults
« on: 2014-12-05 14:19:09 »
Is it possible to define separate defaults for individual data bases?

I have a data base called work orders which I want to open in the work order folder when I launch the program, but I want the family photos data base to open in the pictures folder.

Is there a way to do this?  If not, Laura, is it possible to implement in a future update?

ThumbsPlus Suggestions / Facebook Enhancements
« on: 2012-04-29 13:15:04 »
My first impression of the new facebook feature is quite positive.  As an additional enhancement, would it be possible to have the annotation uploaded as a comment when the picture is copied to FB.  And in the other direction, can the on line comment be added to the annotation?
