SetEXIFData 6.0 #setexifdata #photo #foto #image #fotobewerking #exiftool #exif #exifdata #photography #fotografie #keywords #copyright #author #artist

A new version of SetEXIFData , my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey , is now available:

v6.0
(08-april-2017)

Note:
- Serial numbers are version independent, and thus remain valid for v6.

New:
- Get the elevation (in meters) of the Geo-location into GPSAltitude.
- GPSAltitude is saved into XMP:GPSAltitude.
- Moved the 'Comment' field into the first panel. It is still being filled with the address data from the 'Keywords and Geotag' panel.
- If you click Allow or Cancel when MacOS X asks for permission to access your Contacts, your choice is saved as a preference. This new setting can be found under the menu-option 'Preferences...'
- Moved the camera info fields into their own panel, named 'Camera'. These settings are still saved when you create a preset via the Artist popup menu.
- Added CameraLabel. This tag is filled with 'CameraMake, CameraModel'.
- Added LensMake and LensModel.
- Added LensInfo as 4 individual fields: MinFocalLength, MaxApertureAtMinFocal, MaxFocalLength and MaxApertureAtMaxFocal. These settings are also saved as Camera info when you create a preset via the Artist popup menu.
- Added 'ObjectName', although read more …
- Added 'Author', although read more …

Fixed:
- GPSLongitude and GPSLatitude are now saved as is: positive or negative.
- GPSLongitude and GPSLatitude are now prefixed with the XMP: group, which was the only way to get the GPS-data into PNG images which Apple Preview will display in the Info-panel.
- GPS-data are written on a per-field basis, only if the individual fields contain data. For example, if you enter data in Latitude and leave the rest empty, only Latitude and LatitudeRef are written.

Various software updates (SetEXIFData, ICSViewer and HandbrakePM)

My three main apps are updated with new toolbar icons (if applicable) and now look great on HiDPI (Retina) displays.

SetEXIFData v5.9 -> http://marc.vos.net/downloads/setexifdata/
HandbrakePM v1.7 -> http://marc.vos.net/downloads/handbrakepm/
ICSViewer v2.8 -> http://marc.vos.net/downloads/icsviewer/

Also:
- The label 'Camera mode' in SetEXIFData has been corrected into 'Camera model' - the 'l' dropped off when I reset the size of the font back to the system default.
- Bug fixed in HandbrakePM with loading Handbrake presets.

SetEXIFData 5.8

A new version of SetEXIFData , my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey , is now available:

v5.8
(21-february-2017)

New:
- When retrieving the date from the file name, you can now specify the time to use, if it's missing from the file's name, in the Date/Time fields. Also, if you process multiple photos with the same date immediately one after the other, you can use the Time interval fields to add or subtract hours/minutes/seconds or increment just the sequence number.
- You can now select an address from your Mac Contacts, via a pop-up menu to the right of the 'Geotag'-button, and then click on the 'Geotag'-button to get its GPS coordinates. When you select an address from the pop-up, it has precedence over entered Lat/Lon coordinates. Also, the checkbox 'Put address in comment' will automatically be checked, but can be manually unchecked.

Fixed:
- GPSLatitudeRef and GPSLongitudeRef are now also written. These values are needed while importing in, for example, Google Photos. Some of these photo-apps do not interpret postive GPS-values as default N and E.
- Interval time fields are enabled again after choosing the menu-option 'EXIF Dates or ...'.

SetEXIFData 5.7

A new version of SetEXIFData , my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey , is now available:

v5.7
(08-february-2017)

New:
- A pop-up menu with new choices: take the Finder's 'Date created' or 'Date modified' as the 'Date/Time original'.
- Moved the checkbox 'Retrieve Date/Time from file name' also into the new pop-up menu.
- Added an 'Auto-fill' checkbox next to 'Caption/Description', which also takes the filename and puts in the following (new) EXIF tags: Caption-Abstract, Description, ImageDescription, Title, XPSubject and XPTitle.
- 'Comment' is now also written to EXIF tag: XPComment.

Fixed:
- Preserve the File Modify Date/Time was ignored when renaming files.
- An endless loop was found when using a pattern with 'Retrieve Date/Time from file name' for which no more numbers were present.

SetEXIFData 5.6

A new version of SetEXIFData , my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey , is now available:

v5.6
(24-january-2017)

Fixed:
- Crash: When renaming with %x and none of the preferred sequence number-fields could be found.
- Preferences: Not being able to select any of the 'SubSecTime*'-fields when 'SubSecDateTimeOriginal' was present in the Dates-list.

SetEXIFData 5.5

A new version of SetEXIFData, my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey, is now available:

v5.5
(02-january-2017)

Due to an updated code environment (latest Xojo and latest MBS plugins), a few changes were needed.

Removed:
- Show/Hide Info toolbar button is no more.
- The drawer-window used for previews is also gone. Xojo does not support these anymore.

New:
- Each preview now opens in its own window, which means you can now visually compare EXIF-data of multiple images at the same time. All preview windows are automatically closed when processing or starting over.

Fix:
- Increased the font size back to the system-default.
- The geo-tagging window doesn't close when 'Set startup' is clicked. Instead, the button is disabled. To set new startup coordinates, close and reopen the geo-tagging window.
- Implemented an improved map browser, which now uses webkit per default. It updates the map correctly while dragging or zooming.

Direct URL 3.3 #directurl #ssb #kioskbrowser #webbrowser #internet #xojo #website #browser

A new version of Direct URL, my Site Specific Browser (SSB), is now available.

3.3
(01-january-2017)

Application Name in MacOS X
In MacOS X the application name, when running, was always 'Direct URL', regardless of the name of the website you gave the copy.
This has now been fixed. For Xojo coders who want to this too, see here for the solution: https://forum.xojo.com/37244-rename-app-on-open/

I have left the 'About' and 'Quit' menu-items untouched, so these still show 'About Direct URL' and 'Quit Direct URL'.

Direct URL 3.2

A new version of Direct URL, my Site Specific Browser (SSB), is now available.

3.2
(20-december-2016)

Linux version discontinued
The Linux version is discontinued. Too much hassle to keep it up-to-date.

New version-detection
- As of v3.2, the app will check for a new new version and pop-up a notification dialog with a link.

Window size
- The last known window-size will now be remembered. At startup, the window will always begin at top 45, left 1 and resize itself according to the saved width and height.

Webkit
- The app now uses webkit, if present.

Loading URL in MS-Windows
- There was a problem with loading an URL under MS-Windows. This has been fixed.

Preferences-file
- Instead of having one preferences file in use by all copies of Direct URL, each copy now gets its own preferences file, named like this: durl-[app name].ini
- If you have used the 'Preferences…', this change breaks it. You have to specify any special URLs and/or passwords again.

SetEXIFData 5.4

A new version of SetEXIFData, my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey, is now available:

5.4
(16-december-2016)

New:
- Added 'Set the File Create Date/Time to the Date/Time Original' which modifies the 'Date created' in the Finder.
- Added 'Set the File Modify Date/Time to the Date/Time Original' which modifies the 'Date modified' in the Finder.
Both settings use the first date found according to the order specified in under 'Preferences->File Rename settings->EXIF date fields search order'.

New (video files):
- Video formats were not accepted by SetEXIFData, although EXIFtool can handle them. The following video extensions are now accepted: moov, mov, qt ,mqv, m4v, mp4.
A note to processing video files: the individual track-sections will not be modified, only the container. Video files only allow 1 keyword. The 'Extra camera info' is not part of EXIF for video files. No preview available in the drawer.

Fix (renaming files):
- Fixed a crash with images with no EXIF dates and times at all.

Fix:
- Fixed a problem with single quotes in a file's name.
- The drawer now closes when processing is started.
- Internal code enhancements.

ICS Viewer 2.7 #icsviewer #ical #calendar #viewer #xojo #event #planning #planned #timeline

The ical/ics calendar file viewer ICS Viewer is updated to version 2.7.

From / To dates selection fixed.
From / To dates would take the chosen date, but with the current time as as start or endpoint.
For example: 01-01-2016 09:10:34 to 13-12-2016 09:10:34
This would cause events on 01 jan 2016 earlier than 09:10 and events on 13 dec 2016 later then 09:10 not to show up.
From / To dates now use 00:00:00 as From time and 23:59:59 as To-time.

About-window at start
The About-window will not show itself automatically anymore when opening the app.
The about window would pop-up each time you start the application until you donated; only then it would not pop-up anymore.
Since this is a bit annoying, I moved the Paypal-button to the main window. When you donate, this button wil disappear.

New version-detection
As of v2.7, the app will check for a new new version and pop-up a notification dialog with a link.

SetEXIFData 5.3

A new version of SetEXIFData, my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey, is now available:

5.3
(28-november-2016)

New:
- Added 'Preferences...' menu-option.

New (renaming files):
- Added preferences with which you can set the search order of EXIF date/time and image number fields for renaming files. This way you can tell SetEXIFData exactly which EXIF fields to look for first, and if not present the next one, and so on.
- Added a preference where you can specify the minimum number of digits for the image number to use while renaming. Smaller numbers are prepended with zeros to match the number of digits you specified. For example, 15, formatted with 5 digits, becomes 00015.

New (geotag):
- Added a preference where you can set the default geo-coordinates to start with when you click the 'Geotag'-button.

Fix:
- If while renaming files using '%x', no EXIF image number fields are found, '%x' will be replaced by 'minimum # of digits' zeros.
- Certain RAW formats were not accepted by SetEXIFData. The following photo extensions are now accepted: 3fr, ari, ciff, cr2, crw, cs1, dcr, dcs, dng, eps, epsf, erf, fff, gif, icm, jng, jp2, jpeg, jpg, jpx, mdc, mef, mie, mng, mos, mrw, nef, nrw, orf, pbm, pef, pgm, png, ppm, ps, psd, ptx, r3d, raf, rw2, rwl, sr2, srf, srw, thm, tif, tiff, vrd, x3f, xmp

Note: although now you can drag and drop certain RAW file types on SetEXIFData, not all of these are supported by EXIFtool for writing back to. Check Phil's site for the 'Supported File Types'-table.

SetEXIFData 5.2

A new version of SetEXIFData, my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey, is now available:

5.2
(22-november-2016)

Fix:
- Renaming a file without using any placeholders works again.
- When renaming a file, a minimum of 3 characters must be present in the 'Document name' field.
- Renaming with '%x' now formats sequence numbers below 1000 with leading zeros: 28 becomes 0028.

SetEXIFData 5.1

A new version of SetEXIFData, my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey, is now available:

v5.1
(21-november-2016)

As of version 5, SetEXIFData is now shareware.

If you have donated for SetEXIFData in the past, please e-mail me your Paypal transaction-reference and I will e-mail you your serial number. I am asking you to take action yourself, because email addresses on file are not always actual anymore.

Fix:
- The link to Paypal has been updated to the new Paypal payment-links. You should now see who you donate to and what for.

SetEXIFData 5.0

A new version of SetEXIFData, my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey, is now available:

v5.0
(20-november-2016)

As of version 5, SetEXIFData is now shareware.

If you have donated for SetEXIFData in the past, please e-mail me your Paypal transaction-reference and I will e-mail you your serial number. I am asking you to take action yourself, because email addresses on file are not always actual anymore.

New:
- Added 'Email address' and 'Serial number' fields and a processing limit of max 5 photos a time. When you make a donation, you will get a serial number mailed to your PayPal email address. Enter both in the appropriate fields in the 'About..'-window and the processing limit will be removed.
- Added SubSeconds (or Burst Sequence Number or ImageNumber or ImageCount) to the Date/Time settings. You can insert a value in just this field if you only want to number photos - no need to fill dates/times. It wil set the following EXIF attributes: SequenceNumber, ImageCount, ImageNumber, SubSecTime, SubSecTimeOriginal. When 'Set Creation Date/Time ...' is checked, also the EXIF attribute 'SubSecTimeDigitized' wil be altered.
- Added '%x' pattern in 'Retrieve Date/Time from file name' to retrieve 3 digits from the file's name and store that number in the previous mentioned EXIF fields. It is up to you to correctly position this placeholder. Read the manual on my website on how to do this.
- Added '%x' pattern to the rename-pattern in 'Document name' when the 'Rename' checkbox is checked. When '%x' is found, the following number from the EXIF data is taken to rename the image file with: SequenceNumber, ImageNumber, ImageCount, ShutterCount, ShotNumberSincePowerUp, SubSecTime, SubSecTimeOriginal or SubSecTimeDigitized - whichever comes first.

Update:
- The main window is now resizable.
- No readme cq. manual included in the download any more. The always up-to-date version can be found by clicking the link on this 'About...'-window.

Fix:
- 'Autofill' caused problems with processing multiple images.
- 'Titlecase' did not always work. Now you have to explicitly execute it by clicking a button. This way you can titlecase keywords and afterwards lowercase individual words, like 'and' and 'or', by hand.
- Possible crash while renaming files based on EXIF dates is repaired.
- Various internal improvements.

SetEXIFData 4.6

A new version of SetEXIFData, my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey, is now available:

v4.6
(26-september-2016)
On request:
- Compiled a Universal Binary (UB) version for use on PowerPC and older Intel Macs. You can download it from my site.
- Added 'Save as set' for Geotags. If 'Put address in comment' is checked, the Comment (street address) is saved with the GPS coordinates.
New:
- A double-click on a row in the EXIF-list inside the drawer, copies the value of the right column to the clipboard.
Fix:
- Improved test if 'exiftool' has been installed.

A note about the Universal Binary (UB) version
Since september 2016 there is a UB version available, for PowerPC and Intel Macs. The UB version is still 1:1 the same with the current Intel version, but may differ in the future, since I use my old Powerbook G4 to keep the UB version current. When it dies, the UB version developments will also stop. Until then I will do my best to keep both versions the same qua functionality.

v4.5
(08-july-2016)
Fix:
- Negative intervals lower than -9, like -10, could not be entered.

SetEXIFData 3.3

A new version of SetEXIFData, my GUI for exiftool by Phil Harvey, is now available:

v3.3 (8-sep-2012)
Fix:
- Found a way to reactivate the app after processing so it responds to mouse clicks again. Hopefully this solves the problem where the app would not come forward.

v3.2 (07-sep-2012)
New:
- Added support for a sticky Growl message when processing has finished, which lists all processed images.
Screen Shot 2012-09-08 at 18.05.18
Changes:
- Replaced the 'Done'-window with a text below the list-window, since the sheet-window-state did not react to mouse clicks when the app was in the background and ready with a conversion.
- Changed the sheet-window into a movable modal.

HandbrakePM 1.5

A new version of HandbrakePM, the batch video conversion tool based on the famous HandBrake video converter, is now available:

v1.5 (8-sep-2012)
- Found a way to reactivate the app after processing so it responds to mouse clicks again. Hopefully this solves the problem where the app would not come forward.

v1.4 (7-sep-2012)
- Replaced the 'Done'-window with a text below the list-window, since the sheet-window-state did not react to mouse clicks when the app was in the background and ready with a conversion.
- Changed the Growl-scripts so now they should work on newer MacOS and Growl installations.
- Made Growl-notifications sticky, like Handbrake does.

SetEXIFData 3.0

Version 3.0 of SetEXIFData is out, with the following changes:

New:

  • Added a checkbox which can be set on to titlecase all keywords, which was previously done automatically. It is set on by default.
  • Added a checkbox which can be set on to autofill the document name property of each photo listed with the current file name.

Bug fix:
  • Problem with assigning keywords for Preview, Photoshop CS5 and iPhoto has been fixed. Turns out these programs let '-subject' overrule '-keywords' for keywords.

Mac OS X Dock Separators

Here are some Mac OS X Dock separators (dock-separators(apps-intel)). These are mainly dummy apps and folders with a transparent icon and names that consist of only spaces. The apps are all Intel-only. The .zip contains 6 apps, the first one has a name of 1 space and the 6th one has a name of 6 spaces, and 3 folders with the same transparent icon and spaces as names. Here's how I use them:

Growl for REALstudio / REALbasic / Xojo

If you want an easy way to implement Growl notifications into a REALstudio project, download this zip-file: growl-for-realbasic It contains the following objects:

Growl.rbo
growlNotifyScript.scpt
growlRegisterScript.scpt
growlRunningScript.scpt


I added the check if the GrowlHelper application is running before issuing Growl-commands.
To use the class, copy the four files into your project's folder and all four objects into your REALstudio project and then double-click the Growl-class to open it. Inside is a Notes-section which explains how to use it.
