RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - fungify - 2013-02-13

Just a minor update.

I've previously shown how to force MyPicsDB to update it's database automatically each night by using an external script. Unfortunately, this method is no longer quite as easy since Frodo introduced JSON-RPC for http requests. (Well - probably it's quite easy when you get the hang of it - but...).

I instead found another solution. I use the service The Scheduler (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=144378) and create a custom built-in script with the following action:

Code:
RunScript(";C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\plugin.image.mypicsdb\scanpath.py",--database)

Remember to update to your own path. I've chosen to run the script each night at 3:00 AM, so that every morning my Last Added-widget shows the images that was added the previous day.

Just a hint.

There is a help menu which explains how to use the add-on.

Correct.

Thanks Fungify,

I'll update the readme which explains your automatically update of the database.

I want to translate the last string to french but I want to be sure before posting on transiflex :

Flash shouldn't be a problem. I suppose it's an indicator to know if picture was took with or without flash.
Image Model : is it the name of the model shooted ?
Image Make : Image done ? Image build ? Or people who make-up the model ?
Image Artist : photographer ?

Thanks.

No, the model of the camera used to take the picture, such as SX10, etc...
(2013-02-13, 17:38)mikebzh44 Wrote: Image Make : Image done ? Image build ? Or people who make-up the model ?
No, the maker of the camera used to take the picture, such as Nikon, Canon, Sony...

Yes

Thanks.

All this labels are displayed in the same screen ?

Could you post a screenshot ?


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - Xycl - 2013-02-14

Hi,

they are displayed in "Browse by Tags" and in "Filter Wizard".

RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - mikebzh44 - 2013-02-14

So :
Image Model should be Camera model, no ?
Image Make should be Camera Brand or Camera Mark, no ?

Because when I'm browsing or filtering my pictures, I want to display all pictures took by Panasonic Lumix.


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - Xycl - 2013-02-14

Image Make = Panasonic
and
Image Model = Lumix

But this depends on your camera.
If and where it stores this info.


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - mikebzh44 - 2013-02-14

Yes but I think that "Image Make" and "Image Model" labels are incorrect.

I think that "Camera Model" and "Camera Brand" labels make more sense, no ?

For example, using XnView for viewing EXIF informations from pictures taken with my smartphone :

Image

So "Image Make" label should be rename "Camera Manufacturer" and "Image Model" label should be rename "Camera Model".


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - Xycl - 2013-02-15

Makes sense, but the EXIF parser uses this naming convention as shown on http://www.exiv2.org/sample.html in the second block beginning with "$ exiv2 -pt img_1771.jpg"


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - mikebzh44 - 2013-02-15

OK doesn't matter.

For french people, I will translate "Camera Model" and "Camera Brand".

Thanks.

Using the file system without any tag and search support is better than using decentralized databases?


RE: [RELEASE] MyPicsDB: Pictures DB with EXIF, IPTC & XMP tags - Mediator - 2013-02-20

Hi,

the option to filter pictures with the content of the EXIF and IPTC tags is really great!
When I get a filtered collection of the pictures I view them in a slideshow. If I want more information about one of the picture I type "O" and get some EXIF info. But normaly the displayed EXIF tags do not tell much about the content, but the IPTC tags would do the job. Is it possible to make a personal selection of EXIF and IPTC tags that are displayed? Maybe in a xml file or something like this? Huh

Thanx,
Mediator
