Hallo. Another problem:
>rotate and flip them losslessly in ThumbPlus
Where saves Thumbs the information about flipping or rotating a image (not the thumbs)? Seems to be not in Exif-Field.

I have a normal orientated image (top-left). Then I cklick in Thumbs IMAGE-QUICK PROCESS-TURN 90 CW.
Result: The image ist rotated, but the Exif-Field has not changed: top-left.

If I open this image in Photoshop, the File-Information says also "normal" for the orientation, but the image was opened in Photoshop correctly rotated.
So where is the rotated  information saved?

>rotate and flip them losslessly in ThumbPlus
Yes, but then I have no protocol  or log file about the action I made. The way 1. click on Batch to make protocol, 2. rotate and 3. batch again for protocol seems to be longer then rotating and flipping (!) with exiftool. But I try that. Now with the batch, it takes about 10 sec for 1 image (old slow PC).

>rotate and flip just their thumbnail in the database
Thats a very good hint. But for the endversion, I think it would be better to place an save the orientations in Exif-Fields than in the database. The scans are for an archive, and maybe in 100 Years, jpg lives but Thumbs-DB not :-(

Possible is also to make a protocol about the diffrence between Exif- and Thumbs-Orientation.
When a thumbs ist rotated, it seems that this information is saved in the database as a new file type. In the table "Thumbnail", all jpgs have normal the number 8 (in my sytem) as filetype. When I rotate the thumb, the Filetype change to 56 (for 180 Rotation) or 24 for 90. Maybe I can save the original orientation from Exif in a user-field and compare it with the Filetype. That result I could export to a txt-file, that maybe in 500 years can be read :-)
Or I export the result to exiftools and let the PC set the new orientations in exif-field from the database over 1-2 nights.

The reason for the wanted parameter is that I have a lot of scanned dia. For a presentation, some dia has to be turned and mirrored. But at the end I want to know, how the dia was in original turned and mirrored.
So I start a batch file with the images als Parameter, where I
1) type the orientation-number (1-8),
2) then a txt-file will created with the exif-information from the file
3) with exiftool, the image will be turned oder mirrored
4) after that the txt-file becomes the new orientation-value.

With a parameter like 1 or 8 after the batch-order, I could make buttons for turning and must not type manually the number for the orientation.
I also thought about a second batch file that gives the paramter, but I hoped there was a easier / quicker way.
Hoping for Version 11!

I want to start an external program (bat-File) from thumbs. Is it possible to put a parameter after the order test.bat?
Like test.bat /xxx

In the batch file I want to read the paramter like
echo %2 or something.

I tried to write a parameter in the thumbs10.ini-file after the external programm-order, but it doesn't work.

Maybe it is possible to solve it with the DDE-Options in Thumbs? I don't know how DDE works. The help says only, how Thumbs works, when DDE comes. But how can thumbs send a DDE-order to an extrernal batch with parameter?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Rating 6 shows only 5 Stars
« on: 2018-03-01 22:27:37 »
If I rate a foto with the number 6, then under the thumbnail only 5 Stars are shown. Is that only my problem, or someone here with the same effect?

ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / Icon as New Menu in Toolbar
« on: 2018-03-01 20:58:16 »
Is it possible to place a icon instead only Text as New Menu in Toolbar?

In the thumbs10.ini, a icon seems to be set in this way:

The New Menu is set like

Maybe there is a trick to bring the code together?

And is it possible to place some border icons or some other elements in the toolbar, so that the Buttons / Menus have more space between and are better visible than only grouping them?

My "solution" ist to press the Windows-Key twice. Then the focus is back to the Thumbs-List.
Not fine. Maybe mouse is faster. Let's see.

Hello again.
Since Vers. 10 or maybe bevore, I have a problem with keyboard functions. In earlier Thumbs-Version, it was possible, to select some thumbs, make an operation like "Turn 90" and after that I had only to type an arrow-key and the selction was away. So I could go with arrow-keys to the next thumbs, make new selections ... Everything without the mouse.

In the actuel version of thumbs, nothing happend when I made an operation with some images and after that pressing an arrow-key.
The focus seems not set in the Thumbs-Overview-Window anymore. First I must press Str+TAB to select in the "Active Tool Window" to go back to the Thumbs-Window. I think the problem ist this "Active Tool Window", that changed the behavior of the keyboard.

Another example - maybe with the same reason - is if I delete a thumb from a gallery by pressing DELETE-Key. After that I must click again in the Thumbs-Windows or press Str+TAB for coming back to the thumbs windows.

Is ist possible to deactivate this, so that the focus / selection is like "old school"?
Or is there another way to set the focus easy to the Thumbs-Windows?
Or ist ist just my keyboard-problem and no other understand what I mean?


ThumbsPlus v10 Questions / new MySQL installation
« on: 2017-02-07 13:45:48 »
My Thumbs runs nice and quick with that mysql script on Wamp-Server an Windows 10, but if I want to make a Foundlist, then Thumbs crashes and says:

Thumbs10.exe crash: exception c0000005 at 0000001b:7460A048

In your installation Found Files makes no problems?

Yes, I read that script but didn't found something like XMP. Maybe next Version.

If I want to put some XMP-Informations to some files, I use exiftool, because one Button-Click is quicker then Open the Meta-Editor, load a specific Meta-File ...
But with Exiftool I don't know how to put the Database-informations of thumbs like Keywords or Annotations into XMP-Fields.

So is there a possibility to open by a batch-File a specific Meta-File that changes the XMP-Informations of images include Keywords and Annotations?

Maybe a phyton-Script?


Using ExifTool with thumbs look here:

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / WebPage by Batch from Gallery
« on: 2017-02-07 08:55:02 »
Thats one of the reasons I like ThumbsPlus: Because of the possibility to work with Access or SQL.
Specially in building WebPages, because sometimes I like to put a html- formular field under the image so that it's possible to choose images by clicking a checkbox and send this selection with php per E-Mail. Thats only with Access possible, because the name of the image must be placed in the html-Code.

But I don't want to start always Access for some little works. So I hope that the Programmers will include somemore functions in normal thumbs-program that are now only with Access possible.

Thanks for the answer.

I will test the /G-Parameter next days. First test is failed.
But I ' ve got another idea, that works.
Just make a webpage by wizard, write a real path for
and also

Then save this template and run a batch that search and change the output paths like:

set /p Ordner=Ordner:%=%
@ECHO off
SETLOCAL enabledelayedexpansion
for /f "tokens=2,*" %%i in ('dir %* ') do if "%%i"=="von" set "AKTPFAD=%%j"
SET "quell_datei=D:\vorlagen\thumbs\web_scheme\test1701.tp_webwiz"
SET "ziel_datei=D:\vorlagen\thumbs\web_scheme\test1701_temp.tp_webwiz"
SET "suchen_nach=C:\temp\thumbs"
SET "ersetzen_durch=%AKTPFAD%\%Ordner%"

IF NOT DEFINED suchen_nach (ECHO Fehler: Die Variable suchen_nach nicht definiert^^!&GOTO :eof)

IF EXIST %ziel_datei% (DEL /f %ziel_datei% 1>NUL 2>NUL)

FOR /f "delims=" %%i IN ('FINDSTR . "%quell_datei%"') DO (
SET zeile=%%i& CALL :ersetzen !zeile!
GOTO :weiter
SET zeile=!zeile:%suchen_nach%=%ersetzen_durch%!

IF [!zeile!] EQU [] (ECHO.>>%ziel_datei%) ELSE (ECHO !zeile!>>%ziel_datei%)
GOTO :eof


tpcmd WebPages(test1701_temp)

Ergo: Thumbs takes the original folder of the images and takes the manual order from Gallery!

>how did you know about the WebPages command?
In Thumbs Help you can read here:
Additional References > DDE commands > DDE, WebPages

ThumbsPlus v7-v9 Questions / WebPage by Batch from Gallery
« on: 2017-01-31 19:15:12 »
I search for a variabe for Gallery, because I want to start a batch file from a gallery that produce a webpage.

No problem to make a webpage by batch from actual folder by writing:

set /p Ordner=Ordner:%=%
for /f "tokens=2,*" %%i in ('dir /a:d ') do if "%%i"=="von" set "AKTPFAD=%%j"
tpcmd WebPages(mypage;%AKTPFAD%\%Ordner%;%AKTPFAD%;0;WAIT)

This code takes all images from the folder where I start the batch from and put the webpage in another folder.

But I am in a gallery, because I want to order the images manually before I make the webpage.
I need the name / variabel where the Gallery-Sorting is saved.
Can someone help me?

Hm. Trying again with your code it seems to work really. Thumbs makes a perfect job.
I found something here;wap2

and used it for this code, which works perfectly.
Thanks for help!

REM must be on to enumerate correctly
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

REM Create string, set it to zero length
set AttachmentList=

REM Set error-out counter
set /a error=-1

REM Examine each file, add its name to the list followed by a comma
for %%F in (%*) do (set AttachmentList=!AttachmentList!%%~dpnxF,) & (set /a error=!error!+1)

REM End script if no files are processed
IF %error% LSS 0 GOTO cleanup

REM Remove final character (a comma)
set AttachmentList=%AttachmentList:~0,-1%

REM Compose email with attachments
thunderbird.exe -compose "to='test@xxx.xx',subject='test',body='test',attachment='%Attachmentlist%'"


set AttachmentList=
set /a error=0
