Hi Folks!

I have been playing around with file management options in PhD and may have a found a bug.

Steps to replicate:


  • Folder with both normal and virtual photos in it.

  • Rename folder in PhD

  • Now all the virtual photos are messed up. Some edits were just removed, some photos were rotated, etc. etc. My non-virtual photos were fine. Good job I had exported everything first...



I must admit that the file management options in PhD are much more limiting than I thought and this is why I was trying to do things like renaming folders. I'm now staying well away from that and will use labels, etc.

Anyway, can anyone replicate this -- with some dummy photos maybe?

Sorry Ed,

I can't replicate that one at all.

Steps:

  1. Create folder on PC containing copies of photos (10)

  2. Name the folder "DummyPhotos"

  3. Open PhD and create a new project (EdIssues)

  4. Import DummyPhotos folder

  5. Create virtual photos of all 10

  6. Make adjustments to all virtual photos - manual & presets

  7. Rename folder in PhD to "EdDummyPhotos"

  8. Check all photos for reported issues



All photos were in the correct state, as I expected. All adjustments present in virtual photos. No rotations.

So, I'm not sure what's happening on your PhD but we'd need to replicate it widely to put it in the bug category.

Hi Pix!

Very interesting! I was doing a lot of organising work and maybe I have missed a step I followed or something I did by mistake. I'll see if I can replicate it again at the weekend. Thanks for taking the painstaking effort to try and reproduce my issue!

I should have mentioned that my two folders where I had issues also had subfolders (3 each, to be exact). The errors were in photos in one of these subfolders (the other two folders did not contain virtual photos). So:

Main folder (renamed to e.g. "Main2 folder" )
Sub 1 -> virtual photos with issues after renaming
Sub 2
Sub 3

This is what I'll try and reproduce over the weekend.

Cheers,

Ed
