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.

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.

ThumbsPlus passes the names of selected files as parameters to the batchfile. When no files have been selected, it will (or won't, depending on settings) pass the folder name instead. So, a command like ECHO %2 will echo the name of the second file that was selected. I don't know what will happen when you put other parameters on the command line, but it wouldn't surprise me if those are ignored (but then, what purpose would they serve? You cannot specify any variable there. If you want to make the batch file say 'XXX', just put 'ECHO XXX' in it and don't worry about command line options).

As for DDE, I don't think batch files have a DDE interface.

- Have you kept the folder structure the same as on the original drive? (that's required)

- Does the new drive have exactly the same volume label that the old drive had? (if not, change it through the drive properties in Explorer - do NOT use TP to do this).

With both these conditions met, TP should recognize the images as before without having to re-make the thumbnails.

I'm having the same problem. Not great when it can't be fixed.
Who says that it can't be fixed?  As explained above, you must (get your system to) use the right codec for the encoding formats that your videos use. Finding and setting up the right codecs can be quite a puzzle.

Good, I hope it will help you fix the problem!

Of course, you could also use the "Edit | Find Similar" function (with a threshold setting of 5 or so), to find all different sets of similar images at one time. In the results list, you could Tag (press INS) all images that should be renamed to reflect their higher resolution. This would create a Tagged Images gallery that contains all images that need renaming. Maybe that's a faster method.

When you open your database in Access, MDB Viewer or some other tool, you'll find fields named 'metric1' and 'metric2' in the Thumbnail table. But how those are used in similarity comparisons is probably only for Cerious to know.

As a user of the program, you could simply:

- Download your website's files
- Thumbnail all images
- Press Ctrl-F on any image that you suspect has differently-sized duplicates, and use the Image Similarity tab to locate them.
