Hello! Tonight, I installed the current 1.1.0 version of PhotoStructure (desktop app for Mac OS X, I’m on OS 12.5.1) and tried to set it up on a test batch of photos (124 photos) residing on an external HDD.
First, I ran into a problem where the initial scanning didn’t go anywhere, but I eventually discovered that it was because I’d left the second location option blank in the Settings (there was no other option; I didn’t want to have my files reorganized, and I didn’t have a second folder I wanted to have scanned). I guess the app was stuck looking for the blank location (?)…So I entered the same path as my test library, and after a restart, it worked.
Secondly, after the scanning, it turns out that only 113/124 photos imported. I had to search through the photos manually to see which ones did not get imported, but in the end I could not tell why it happened. The filenames were fine (I use a “YEAR-MO-DY IMG_1234.jpg” naming system) and the filetypes—all jpg—should have been fine. I tried to resync but the app didn’t really give me any feedback. After I restarted the app again, it added a few more photos that had been missing, but still there remained a handful of others missing.
I’m not sure PhotoStructure will work for me at this time—in particular, I need to be able to annotate photos with a paragraph or two—but I really did love the overall look and feel of the app, and where it seems to be headed. I will definitely keep an eye out for its progression. Thanks!
(Oh, one more thing—it would be cool if the app would remember the window size and location. I would resize and move it, and it would always spring back to the default setting when relaunched.)
