Migration from ACDSee Ultimate 9 to XnView MP 0.88?

Postby AK_CCM » Fri Dec 15, 2017 7:17 pm

Hello all,

on my harddisk all photos are saved in monthly folders. For example "2017-12" contains all photos taken in december 2017. The images were categorised with ACDSee Ultimate 9.

Is it possible to import the categories and categorised data from ACDSee Ultimate 9 to XnView MP 0.88?

Thanks in advance

Kindly regards

Andreas

If categories of acdcsee were written as iptc or xmp keywords in photos, (jpg ?) , xnviewmp will be able to read all keywords, and build his own database ... (about 15 min for 10000 photos)
If keywords are hierarchical (lr:hierarchicalsubject) then categories hierarchy will be built
- tools, settings, metadata, import xmp or iptc keyword
- tools, settings, metadata, read hierarchical keywords
- tools, settings, catalog, add folder ... here you have to enter folders containing photos (subfolders will be read also) ...

Hello,

at first let me say that I don't want to use XnView MP instead of ACDSee Ultimate because the integrated raw converter is awesome.

But I think XnViewMP could be a perfect solution for other German mycologists to catalog their mushroom and habitat photos. For that I would like to review XnViewMP and publish an article on my website www.entoloma.de and publish an article in a few magazines such as the Journal of Mycology (www.dgfm-de/z-mykol) and "Der Tintling" (www.tintling.com).

My photo collection mainly contains Olympus raw files (.ORF). I could export the database in ACDSee Ultimate as text file. Is there any way to import the file into XnViewMP? It would be great if I could use the nested categories for testing purposes.

Thanks in advance

Kind regards

Andreas

XnviewMP can load keywords structure (categories management, import) from a text file ( called "thesaurus") like this

Code: Select all

orchidees
   anacamptis
      coriophora
      laxiflora
      morio
      pyramidalis
   cephalanthera
      damasonium
      longifolia
      rubra
   dactylorhiza
      fuchsii-maculata
      sambucina

Such thesaurus for many purposes can be found easily on the web.

XnviewMP can also export/import a xml file that links photos and categories

Code: Select all

       <File filename="D:/photos/2005/2005 07/DSCN4157.JPG">
            <Keywords>orchidee</Keywords>
            <Keywords>orchidee|anacamptis</Keywords>
            <Keywords>orchidee|anacamptis|morio</Keywords>
        </File>
        <File filename="D:/photos/2005/2005 07/DSCN4158.JPG">
            <Keywords>travel</Keywords>
            <Keywords>travel|landscape</Keywords>
            <Keywords>travel|landscape|lake</Keywords>
        </File>


You can guess here I'm using hierarchical keywords in jpg images.

Currently I think xnviewmp doesn't completly manage database for sidecar xmp files, i only practice internal (iptc, xmp) metadata.
