You're correct that there is no such option in the Image | Batch Process dialog. However, there is a different way of creating batch processes, and I think that may work in this case. Try this:
  • Open one of your images in the viewer/editor (simply by pressing enter or double-clicking on it).
  • Do whatever you want your batch process to do (select a section of the image, invert its colors, etc)
  • Now go to View | Actions in the editor's menu and press Create Batch.
  • I think you'll find your own way from there..  ;)

In TP, go to Help | System Info and look for your Preferences Path. That is the location where your configuration files can be found. Their extensions are .INI , .CONFIG, .VCONFIG and .TP_PLUGCFG. You can save those or just backup the whole folder.

In the registry, look for Cerious and you'll find a number of entries that you could save including your license data.

Try: Options | Preferences | Startup | Minimize startup progress display

If I understand the problem correctly, you want to identify images that exist in both folders or that have a similar copy in the other folder.

If so, I don't know of a command that would do what you want. But as a work-around, you could sort the results by path, then Tag the images from one of the folders. Then re-sort by similarity, and you can recognize matching pairs by the fact that one of the similar images has a tag and the other does not. If neither or both images are tagged, they are from the same folder and you can skip them.

Hi Martin,

I don't think this has been reported before and I'm not aware of a solution, so I think it's best if you contact Cerious' technical support.

(see for technical support options.)

Hi BarbaraNib:  I'm not sure if I fully understand your question (and I don't think it is on-topic in this discussion about database migration). But, my short answer is: A thumbnail in the database is not a full JPG image. Rather, it is a so-called jpeg stream, and making it visible may require some extra steps. I know this isn't a full answer but hopefully it puts you on track to finding one.

When using the query the selected file types are ignored.

I think that's by design. The Filetypes selection applies only to the regular thumbnail view, not to Found Lists. That way, you can easily find files of all types.  I agree that the ability to filter a found list by the filetypes selection or by a mask would be nice to have, though.

But when I clicked on "Go To Folder" from the TP Viewer, this is where it took me in the TP folder tree:

Are you positive that this file was stored on your phone's internal memory and not in the cloud?

I know that many devices only work with native Windows Explorer but not with applications that use Explorer functionality. So, that might be the cause and in that case, I don't think there's anything that can be done about it.

Things that I would still try:

- Switch the Pixel to a different file transfer mode (as explained here: ) and don't launch TP until after you've made that switch.

- See if there are Pixel drivers for Windows 10 that enable access from more applications than Explorer only.

I thought it would be in Options | Preferences | Confirmations, but I do not see a setting there specific to those lossless operations that you've been using..

If you can't find it either, exit TP, open your Thumbs8.ini in Notepad and look for a line "JpegAutoTrim=1". Change the 1 into a 0 and that should solve it.

btw, note that you can also use Transform | Turn and Mirror to rotate your image. It sounds like you were using File | Jpeg | Turn. The latter is a so-called lossless operation, meaning that the jpg file won't be recompressed when you use this, so its image quality won't be affected. However, this only works if the height and width of the image are divisible by 8 - any remainder will be cut off. When you use the regular Turn and Mirror commands instead, nothing will be cut off but your image will of course be re-compressed when you save it.

I've crossed the 2GB threshold on my tpdb8 database, so I've created a new sqlite tpbd8s database.
Can I import the thumbnail and data from my old database into the new database?

I can't help, except by pointing you to this previous discussion that may offer some clues:

(note that in that case, the TP user was still using TP7 and hoped to upgrade to TP10 + SQLite3 database)

Yes, too bad! Some things seem to work only in the native Explorer.

Are you positive though, that 'MaciPhone' does not appear under (well, within) 'This PC'? Have you tried connecting the iPhone first and then launching TP? Or, press Ctrl-F5 to refresh the tree?

I have one final potential trick upon my sleeve..:

- Close TP
- Open the iPhone's DCIM folder in an Explorer window.
- Drag and drop a JPG file from that folder onto the ThumbsPlus icon on your desktop
- This should launch ThumbsPlus and make it display that JPG image in its viewer/editor
- From the viewer's menu, pick: File | Go To Folder
- This should cause the main TP program (the thuimbnail listing) to display the DCIM folder. So, go to the main program and choose Tree | Add to Favorites in the menu. Give your new favorite folder a description like 'iPhone' and save it.
- IF this worked, from now on, you can simply use the 'Go To' function to jump to your iPhone. There's a big yellow star icon up above the tree panel that you can press, or you can use Tree | Go To in the menu.

Can T+ be configured to open images folder on an iPhone?

Do you see that folder in Windows Explorer? (it's probably called DCIM)

If you do, I think you should be able to see it in ThumbsPlus as well.

When you look in the tree panel under This Computer, do you see "Macsnapper's iPhone" there? There are some options under Options | Preferences | Disks & Folders that could be relevant.

The actual pixels in the image have been rearranged to rotate it. So, the orientation remains top-left.

That looks like a rather complicated approach.

I have no further suggestions if that's how you want to do it, but did you know that if the scanned slides are in JPEG format, you can rotate and flip them losslessly in ThumbPlus (Image | Quick Process)?  Or, if you want to maintain their as-scanned orientation, you can rotate and flip just their thumbnail in the database (Thumbnail | Orient), and then run a slideshow in which the thumbnail orientation is used to display the slide correctly (Options | Viewing | Other | Use database thumbnail orientation when displaying images). I didn't test that, but it should work.
