I have some troubles with the search function of ThumbsPlus 10. Searching only for keywords runs quick and without any troubles.
But always when I need a more restricted search there I have problems.
Often I would need a search which is restricted to only one specific Gallery. I have not found a solution for such search. Is it possible?
I have some knowledge about SQL statements but I am not able to find a way to make it run.

Another problem: I already searched by date with Advanced Search and the field tn.[file_time_iso]. But it seems to me that even that is no longer possible. Maybe that something has changed with Version 10? I don't remember the last time that I have searched by date successfully.

I hope, this program is still alive because I love it. It's very quick, simple to use and easy to configure for the use together with other programs. These are the reasons why I still stay with ThumbsPlus. But I would like to see some improvements for search functions (date/time, gallery, gps data - search by rectangle of a map, ...).
Many thanks,

ThumbsPlus Suggestions / Search by location (GPS data)

2 years ago I have written a feature request to I've got the answer that my wish sounds good and maybe it will be released in V11.
I want to post this e-mail here to say that my wish still is needed by me and hopefully by other TP users too.
First I want to say you "many thanks for this excellent product! I am working with ThumbsPlus more than 10 years and I also recommended this program for archiving historical pictures of my home-city. There it runs fine since 9 years.

The only thing that I am missing is a function for searching photos by location. This is why I also have installed "Imabas" (
Nearly all of my photos (and the photos of the archive of my home-city) have stored their GPS coordinates. With Imabas I can search photos by chossing a rectangular area of a map. Unfortunately this is not possible with ThumbsPlus. I would like to have only one database and ThumbsPlus for my purposes is clearly the better one.
Maybe that some day we can have this feature? It would make possible a very straigthforward workflow to me (and to others!?) Are there similar wishes from other ThumbsPlus users? (I hope so)
As every Smartphone, tablet and some new cameras have the ability to tag every photo with GPS data, it would be a very useful feature. It is not necessary to display every photo within a map. For me it is enough or even better only to draw a rectangular in a map (Open Street map or something else), press the find button and see the results in "Found Files".
The link of Imabas has changed within the last 2 years - it's now

It would be very helpful too, if ThumbsPlus would have a feature to set GPS and location data. I am using GeoSetter for now and it works fine but it would be very nice if I could reduce the number of tools in my workflow.
Thank you!

I am a longtime TP7 user. Some time ago I bought TP9 but I am not able to do my workflow with this new version.
My problem in detail:
Some (basic) keywords come from Lightroom when exporting the developed RAW-file.
Then I start ThumbsPlus and scan the folder with my new images.
Next step - I select various images at the same time to give them a keyword (CTL-K). This ist very fast and still the same as with TP7.
But at the end I want to write all keywords from the database into the IPTC-keyword. With TP7 I started the IPTC-Editor, pressed CTRL-K and klicked on the OK-button - finished!
How can I do the same with TP9? I cannot find a way to do this.
How can I combine the keywords from database and the already existing IPTC-keywords in IPTC?
For me this is the only reason why I am still working with the good old TP7.
Please can you make me a happy TP9-user - Many thanks!
