Feature Request: save metadata to file, and read metadata from file.

Please have function to save metadata to file, and read metadata from file.
This would allow us to write cross-platform plugins that can assure data is up-to-date in the xmp, or modify xmp and have it reinstated in the catalog.
This would go nicely with the ability to save xmp for virtual copies, dng, and rgb formats.

Perhaps someone with direct experience with publishing to Smugmug will chime in.  Short of that, some thoughts on your issues:
Should I not bother to "Save Metadata to File", this seems to be what is messing up the SmugMug publish service?
I very much doubt that it is messing up the publishing.  What gets saved to the file from the catalog is independent of what gets exported.  Saving metadata to the file is generally a good practice (in case you screw up your catalog backups).  Many, perhaps most, users set the preference Catalog Settings > Automatically Write Changes Into XMP.
I would have expected it to behave like an export which would write synonyms, exclude keywords that should be excluded, etc, which seems to work ok in point 6 above.
Yes, that's a reasonable expectation.
You may have done this already, but double-check: Right-click the Smugmug publishing service in the left-hand column of the Library, select Edit Settings, and in the Metadata section verify that you have Include: All Metadata set.
Did you download the Smugmug plugin from Smugmug? You might try this Smugmug plugin instead -- the author designed the publishing architecture of LR and has an excellent reputation. 
Are the publish services more effort than they are worth? So I get SmugMug to work, what happens when I try Flickr?
I think many users find the publishing services are generally worthwhile.  I publish regularly to Flickr (using the built-in Flickr plugin, which isn't completely reliable) and the Zenfolio plugin from Friedl.

  • Best way to control and read data from multiple instruments?

    I'm building an application to test power supplies involving multiple pieces of equipment over a couple of different comm busses. The application will also send control instructions to some of the instruments, and read data from some of the instruments. The reading and control profiles will not run on the same schedule (variable length control steps, configurable read interval).
    I was thinking of using a queued statemachine (producer/consumer) for the control profile and another to read the data, but I got concerned that there would be collisions between sending control commands and read commands to the same machine. Is there a suggested design pattern for implementing something like this?
    Timing of the commands isn't critical down to the milisecond, but I need to collect reasonably accurate timestamps when the data is read. The same is true for the control commands.
    Here are the instruments I'm going to use, if the are control, read, or both, and the communication method
    Instrument Funtions Comm Method
    Power Supply Read data Communicates to PMBus Adapter
    PMBus to USB Adapter Read data USB (Non-Visa)
    Switch control relays USB (VISA)
    Power Dist. Unit read data/control outlets SNMP (Ethernet)
    Electronic Load read data/control load GPIB (VISA)
    Thermal Chamber read data/control temp Ethernet (VISA)

    Hello, there is a template in LV called "Continuous measurement and Logging".
    It can give you some idea how to properly decouple the "GUI Event handler" top loop (where your Event structure is) from the DAQ and other loops.
    You do not need to totally replicate the above example, but you can find there nice tricks which can help you at certain points.
    The second loop from the top is the "UI message loop". It handles the commands coming from the top loop, and regarding to the local state machine and other possible conditions and states, it can command the other loops below.
    During normal run, the different instrument loops just do the data reading, but if you send a control command from the top loop to a certain instrument loop (use a separate Queue for every instrument loops), that loop will Dequeue the control command, execute it, and goes back to data reading mode (in data reading mode the loop Dequeu itself with a "data read" command automatically). In this way the control and data read modes happen in serial not in parallel which you want to avoid (but I think some instrument drivers can even handle parallel access, it will not happen in really parallel...).
    In every instrument loop when you read a value, attach a TimeStamp to it, and send this timestamp/value couple to the DataLogging loop via a Queue. You can use a cluster including 3 items: Source(instrument)/timestamp/value. All the instrument loops can use the same "Data logging" Queue. In the Datalogging while loop, after Dequeue-ing, you can Unbundle the cluster and save the timestamp and data-value into the required channel (different channel for every instrument) of a TDMS file.
    (Important: NEVER use 2 Event structures in the same top level "main" VI!)

  • HT4865 I don't have enough storage space on my iPhone 4S to download the new OS7 so how do I save it to iCloud and remove it from my iPhone to make room but not loose the deleted stuff from iCloud?

    I don't have enough storage space on my iPhone 4S to download the new OS7 so how do I save it to iCloud and remove it from my iPhone to make room but not loose the deleted stuff from iCloud?

    You can't use iCloud like that.  It isn't a general file storage service; it's designed to sync data across your devices. 
    Some options are to sync all your music or other media off your device, then sync it back on after you update.  Another is to import your photos to your computer (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4083), then sync them back to your phone after you update by putting them in a folder, then selecting the folder on the Photos tab of your iTunes sync settings and syncing.

  • Can you suggest a best way to store and read arabic from oracle database?

    Hi ,
    can you suggest a best way to store and read arabic from oracle database?
    My oracle database is Oracle Database 10g Release - 64bit Production on unix HP-UX ia64.
    I have presently stored the data in nvarchar2 field. But i am not able to display it correctly.

    Using the national characterset should work but there are other factors that you have to consider when working with NCHAR/NVARCHAR2/NCLOB.
    If possible, changing the characterset is usually the best solution if it's a possiblity for you.
    For more info:
    Dear Gurus: Can u pls explain the difference between VARCHAR2 & NVARCHAR2??

  • LR3 Feature Request - Heal Preset/Import Capability and Stuck Pixels

    (Note: I posted something similar some time ago but the original thread seems to be inaccessible although a cached Google version is available here. )
    2 features requests but with a common theme :-
    1) Spot removal/cloning/healing added to a preset. Currently the only way to do this is to copy and synchronise during an editing session of photos that have already been imported.  The capability to save spot removal as a preset would be very useful for dealing with recurring dust spots and similar issues.
    Which leads to request 2 -
    2)  The ability to manually 'tune' the hot pixel removal capability. Currently LR is failing to deal with some stuck/hot pixels on one of my cameras (a Ricoh GRD III) if this is linked to the way DNG has been implemented in the Ricoh, as suggested in the earlier thread re this subject, then a response from Adobe to confirm this would be appreciated, either way some ability to 'tell' LR what to do would be of benefit.

    Thanks for the response Rob, saving a 'target' image is a good idea, but other than that I don't see this workaround as being particularly different from the approach I outlined in my initial post. One of the most useful capabilities LR has is being able to apply presets during import, yet Adobe for whatever reason have not allowed any of the tools (other than graduated filters) to be applied this way, I would love to know why. There was a 'bug' with LR 1 if I remember correctly whereby spot settings could be saved to a preset, but this was 'fixed' in a later release, so it appears to be possible to implement this functionality, yet they have decided not to do so.

  • Feature Request: AME Watch Folders file type filter

    maybe I'm posting it to the wrong forum. If so, maybe some moderator can move this thread to the correct forum.
    I'm exporting Quicktime Reference files from Avid, which creates two files: .mov and. wav. Since I'm exporting it to Watch Folder AME automatically converts the wav also. But would be useful to "tell" AME only convert files with mov extension. It's of course possible later to erase encoded sound files but would be convinient to point out only the file types which require converting.
    thank you,

  • FEATURE REQUEST: After Effects style Placeholders and Proxies

    If you feel the needs in efficient proxy workflow, welcome to the club and don't hesitate to submit feature request.
    Here is the adjusted to less than 2000 symbols feature request text:
    ***After Effects style Placeholders and Proxies*** 
    It would be nice if PrPro offered AE style Placeholders and Proxies workflow. There are cases, where they are extremely useful, e.g.:
    1. Huge modern formats and resource hungry codecs. Not all machines can easily handle 2k or 4k footages, some can't get real time playback even with AVCHD. Not to mention that CinemaDNG importer was discontinued partly because of inability to get real time playback in PrPro. The issue can be resolved via rendering previews, but that's not always the most efficient workflow.
    2. In multicam editing issues mentioned above increase dramatically. Rendering preview for every camera angle is simply impossible. Although PrPro offers offline clips workflow, an editor can't easily see if the clip is currently linked to a source footage or a proxy, and switching between sources and proxies involves several steps every time one needs to switch: selecting assets, making them offline, right-clicking again to link to other media, locating files on a disk; while in After Effects it's just one click once a proxy is set.
    3. Adobe Dynamic Link. PrPro communicates with AE projects via single instance of headless AE, which creates a bottleneck and entails the need to render DI for complex comps. Although AE allows to set DIs as proxies and, hence, enjoy the best of both worlds, instantly switching between DI and dynamically linked comp and no needs to replace anything in PrPro timeline, with hundreds of dynamically linked comps PrPro timeline becomes unresponsive and takes forever to render (for my rig test 30 min sequence built out of 935 dynamically linked comps, which are just source footages in their own comps, hence, the equivalent to rendered DIs set to proxies, takes around 27 hours to render, while 30 min sequence built out of the same 935 source footages renders in real time). Meanwhile, PrPro doesn't currently allow to link offline dynamically linked comps to rendered DIs.

    As the person who maintains the feature request database for After Effects, I can confirm that the number of times an item has been requested is a major factor when we consider what to work on next. So are other factors, such as how hard the feature is to implement and maintain, how much testing is involved (often the larger concern than programming time), whether the request conflicts with something else that we are already working on, and so on. It is true that we consider not just raw numbers of requests but the details of who is making the requests---e.g., whether the requests are coming from animators or compositors, beginners or experts.
    I can only speak for the After Effects team, but the Premiere Pro team works much the same way (which is unsurprising, since we are in the same group and have overlapping team members).
    We also try to give some visibility into the most requested items with posts like this:

  • [feature request] Save original image when doing HDR

    As the subject says - would be very nice to have an option to be able to get both images saved - HDR and the normal shot. iPhone5 that I also use has this option and it's very handy, please implement it.
    I shoot a lot on the go and sometimes the camera shakes or objects move and then the final HDR image (that is combined out of a number of images taken with different exposures has a lot of "ghosting" on it. Typical problem that is usually corrected manually when I work with big DSLRs and of course avoided by using tripod.. but anyway, please consider adding the ability to save BOTH normal shot AND the HDR one. Some other big names in industry have it, it's a nice option for some people and in general there's no reason not to have it.

    People, please, if you like the idea and would like to have such feature implemented in future software updates or at least draw some attention to it, just post reply here with your approval.. or make a better suggestion. Takes just a few seconds of your time, but it's worth it.

  • Feature Request: Song Controls in Coverflow and Bigger touch buttons

    Something that really needs to be added to the iPhone software for the iPod are song controls ( |<< and >>| buttons) when the phone is resting sideways and in coverflow mode. I use the iPhone in my car as an MP3 player, and if it is in coverflow mode and I am listening to an entire Genre (on shuffle), there is no way skip forward to the next song - this also becomes a problem if I'm using an armband. It would be nice if Apple added forward/backward skip buttons in the coverflow mode.
    Also - another concern is that touch-area around the song control buttons when you are NOT in coverflow mode isa bit small. When you are driving in a car, it actually becomes difficult to find the right area to touch (you know the >>| button) to skip to the next song. These would benefit from a small increase in size or just the touch area surrounding the button.
    These seem like simple changes that can be easily implemented. Anyone else have these same concerns? Does anyone else have any other simple features that could be added to the iPod functionality to make it easier to use?
    Message was edited by: dpbeardsley

    Since this is a user to user help forum only for technical support issues and questions, best to use the iPhone feedback link for such feedback, which at least ensures that your feedback is forwarded to and read by the appropriate Apple personnel but does not ensure that your request will be implemented.

  • (feature request) Save bookmarks

    I've been using sqld to do some pl/sql development recently and it is great. A feature that would make it even better would be the ability to save bookmarks. If I have a package nicely bookmarked it's great....until I shutdown sqld. At which point all my bookmarks are lost. This essentially makes bookmarking useless. I'm not going to bother setting up bookmarks if they're going to be lost every time I shutdown.

    I like the idea. Please post over at http://sqldeveloper.oracle.com under feature requests so that people can vote on it.

  • Feature Request:  Useful toStrings in Cookie and HttpServletResponse/Reques

    Hi. It seems obvious to me that the Cookie.toString() should give the text representation of the Cookie as it will appear in the HTTP header. The reason that I need this is that Java does NOT support HttpOnly and I need to insert it into the Cookie manually. I can do this somewhat using HttpServletResponse.setHeader(java.lang.String name, java.lang.String value) except that I have a complex application with Cookies being set multiple times and there is no HttpServletResponse.getHeader(java.lang.String name) to allow me to read what'[s in the SET-COOKIE header, dynamically change it and write it back.
    A reasonable implementation of HttpServletResponse.toString would allow me to do what I need to do also, but that alas also just shows the reference.
    HttpOnly will not be the last custom HTTP cookie attribute or HTTP header and Java should give better support for dynamically managing HTTP headers.
    I think that toStrings are a great idea, but it seems that as a general rule, useful toStrings have not been implemented in the Java libraries.

  • Best way to browse and read data from a lot of files?

    Hi All,
    I am trying to read tags from music files. Currently I'm listing all the files and then reading through the tags, as below:
    List<File> result = new ArrayList<File>();
    FilenameFilter mp3filter = new FilenameFilter() {
         public boolean accept(File dir, String name) {
              return name.endsWith(".mp3");
    FilenameFilter wmafilter = new FilenameFilter() {
         public boolean accept(File dir, String name) {
              return name.endsWith(".wma");
    FileFilter dirFilter = new FileFilter() {
         public boolean accept(File file) {
              return file.isDirectory();
    File[] dirList = aStartingDir.listFiles(dirFilter);
    File[] mp3files = aStartingDir.listFiles(mp3filter);
    File[] wmafiles = aStartingDir.listFiles(wmafilter);
    List<File> filesDirs = Arrays.asList(dirList);
    List<File> filesMp3 = Arrays.asList(mp3files);
    List<File> filesWma = Arrays.asList(wmafiles);
    for (File file : filesMp3) {
    for (File file : filesWma) {
    for (File file : filesDirs) {
         List<File> deeperList = getFileListing(file);
    }and then read the files in a for loop through the list.
    Is there a better way to do the same?

    Well, you could optimize that just a little bit by only calling listFiles once with a filter that would accept directories, wmas, and mp3s all in one go. Then you could iterate through the results and separate them into the three categories after you had the complete recursive directory listing. That may be faster. But your OS will likely cache the results of the directory listing, thus minimizing the effort of your current approach. But honestly, no... you need the headers from every file, so you'll need to find each file and then check the headers.
    If you want, you can cache the results somewhere for future reference. Are you concerned about performance or some such?
