SetEXIFData 5.8

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


- 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.

- 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

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


- 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.

- 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:


- 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.

Tiled Canal at the Palace of Queluz, Portugal

Last year we went to visit Lisbon and its surrounding environment.
That's where we found the Palace of Queluz ... what a history it has!

The most stunning part I found, was the tiled swimming pool - I think it must have been used as a swimming pool also, instead of being just a simple canal.
With the sun in my back, a made a series of photos of one side of the tiled interior and stitched them together with Photoshop to create a big 'panorama' so you can enjoy this wall in its entirety from anywhere .
Of course you really have to visit the palace to indulge in its beauty.


SetEXIFData 5.5

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


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

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

- 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.

- 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.


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:

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

Check / Identify which version of Mac OS X is on your Recovery HD partition

There is an easy way to check which version of Mac OS X is on your Recovery HD partitions.
Since you can have such a partition on each attached Mac-formatted disk, it's interesting to know if they are all up-to-date.
To find out how, click here!

Direct URL 3.2

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


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.

- 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.

- 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.
