Hello! Looking for support with importing a large library of files. I am an early user of photostructure back in the early betas but decided to give PS plus a try now that it seems a bit more mature.
Attempted to import a large collection of photos.
After photostructure did its thing, I noticed that there were 200+gb not imported. I followed the commands here:
and got a large list of files. I ran the info command on a few and am getting a few errors, but one that I am seeing on a regular basis:
“IPTCDigest is not current. XMP may be out of sync”
My two questions:
- Is there a more efficient way of investigating each file rather than doing an info command and searching the data that outputs?
- What does the above problem indicate?
what version of PS?
The later alpha releases have sync reports in CSV that you can easily open in excel. sync-reports folder in your library folder.
Yeah, not alpha. v 1.1.0
I’d rather stick to more stable releases.
It’s debatable wether 1.1.0 is more stable… but I hear you. In that case I don’t think there is a way other than checking one by one like you have.
As far as what that errors actually means, no idea. Hoperfully @mrm can help.
FWIW I’m using the alpha build to host my family’s photos on ubuntu-hosted docker, but it’s a pretty vanilla box.
In any event, I’ll try to get a new stable release out as soon as I can.
IPTCDigest is not current. XMP may be out of sync error is a new one for me. If there’s a file associated to the error, can you PM or email me the file so I can take a look?
Finally switched over to the alpha build and did a full re-import of my library. The CSV was a huge help in troubleshooting why some files were not indexed. At this point all major issues are resolved and I should be moving over the rest of my libraries!
