New computer, how to move SL Classic 4?

Hi Bill,

Sure, moving StudioLine to a new computer is commonly done.

The basic steps are:
  • Identify the location of your StudioLine Data folder on your old computer. It might be something like "C:\StudioLine3 Data".
    Hint: Look in the StudioLine "Help" Menu. The "About" screen should reveal which folders StudioLine is currently configured with.
  • Also look up or locate your StudioLine 4 activation key.
  • Copy that ENTIRE folder and all its subfolders to a disk on your NEW computer. It does NOT have to be the C: drive again, but it certainly can.
  • Download and install the lastest StudioLine Photo Classic 4 onto the new computer. When you START the software for the first time, it will offer to either set up a completely NEW image archive (what you do NOT want), or it will ask you for the location of your existing image archive. Simply point to the StudioLine Data folder that you had copied to your new computer.

That's it as far as any images that are stored INSIDE the StudioLine Image Archive.

VERY IMPORTANT:
If your StudioLine "Preference" Settings on your old computer have "Do not Copy / Proxy only" configured for any of your disks, external drives, USB devices, etc. then please understand that those files were never stored "internally" in the StudioLine image archive - StudioLine was always just referencing them in their original "external" locations, as instructed by those settings.
So you absolutely HAVE to locate these "external" files on those disks and copy them over to the new computer as well (or plug those devices into the new computer).

PS - it might be helpful if you sent me (privately) a series of annotated ("after") pictures, that is representative for a typical batch of work you commonly do. This way, we can better understand what the end-result is supposed to look like and whether a shortcut to your external application is the best way to go, or whether this can be accomplished with watermarks, collages or other built-in StudioLine features.

Topic: Annotate within Studioline?
Hi Bill,

if by "annotate" you mean add captions, titles, descriptions - then yes, you can do that with StudioLine using input devices that are interpreted as text by Windows. StudioLine does have two different ways how any of the text fields (even in combination) could be superimposed onto an output picture, if that's what you would like to happen.

If by "annotate" you mean marking up the picture itself, by drawing directly onto it, then "No", StudioLine does not have a bitmap editing/drawing app.

However, StudioLine CAN interface directly with external applications (such as drawing applications). You can create "program shortcuts", so that you can launch third party applications directly from a chosen photo inside StudioLine, and have the updated photo saved back directly into the image archive. Maybe that is the process you are looking for:
http://help.studioline.net/classic/image_editing
scroll down to chapter on "Editing with Third-Party Applications".

(Basically, right-click on the image in the StudioLine image archive, choose "Open With" and there will be options to create shortcuts to your favorite external third party applications).

Best Regards,
Andy

Hi Andy: I am getting a Lenovo Yoga tablet/laptop with touchscreen. Currently I load all of my photos directly into Studioline for organizing and editing. I often need to annotate photos. To do this I export a photo in desired resolution to a folder, then import from an annotation application... cumbersome.

Is there a way to use my touchscreen-digipen within Studioline for simple annotation? (text, arrows, clouds) It would be so much easier when I have multiple images to annotate. -OR- Do you have a tutorial for a more efficient way to export/annotate multiple images?

1. Choose 'Classifications' from the 'Edit' menu to display the ratings panel.
Select one or more images that you would like to classify.
Drag and drop the rating start of your choice to one of the selected images - or click the appropriate star at the bottom of the screen.
2. In the Keywords panel, select either to search the entire image archive of just the current folder.
Hold the shift key and click on the checkbox in front of the rating you wish to see. All the images with that rating will be displayed.

Please view the help for instructions: http://help.studioline.net/classic/ratings
also please see this workshop for more interesting search capabilites in SL Photo Classic:
http://www.studioline.net/EN/products/workshops/image-archive-filter

Second question.
If you have set your image archive copy preferences to 'don't copy' then StudioLine doesn't make an internal copy of the original image, but simply keeps a reference to its location. Therefore, if you physically move the original, that reference will no longer be valid. If you try to use these images in a way that requires the original, you can click on the 'search' icon next to the 'file not found' message and 'Browse' to the new location where the file is located. When you select the image from its new location, StudioLine will adjust the reference. It will also adjust the reference for any other images that were moved from/to the same locations. If you have many images that you moved to various locations, you may have to do this for each new target location that you had moved images.

Hello,

It's my hope to be able to use the "stars" rating feature to:
1. Rate photos I like, 4 or 5 stars
2. Globally search all my photos, for all my 4 and 5 star images, so I am then looking at all my favourite pictures, from all the photos I've taken--and not any other photos.

Is this something I can do? I hope so. . I'm just so tired, and I don't want to dig around any further.


My second question:

After launching the program, the program directed me to select a folder with photos, that it would reference them from it's image archive. This went well. Afterwards, I moved a lot of the original photo locations around. They remain in the archive, in their original locations, x'd out.


Can I instruct the system to rebuild the archive so it's using the updated locations, and eliminate these "broken pictures" when I'm browsing my archive?

Hallo,
die Anzahl der Bilder auf einer Seite ist, abhängig vom gewählten Webgalerie-Stil, 24 oder 36 Bilder. Bei den Stilen "mit Vorschau" 36 Bilder.
In StudioLine Photo Classic 4 gibt es einen frei definierbaren Stil "Startup". In diesem Stil können Anzahl der Bilder pro Seite sowie Größe der Detailansichten festgelegt werden.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Ich habe gerade die neueste Version von Photo Basic 4 heruntergeladen. Bei der Erzeugung von Webalben kann man aber nicht die Anzahl der Bilder auf der Seite ändern. Ist immer 36. Und die Option, die Größe der Detailansichten festzulegen, fehlt komplett.

Beides sollte laut help verfügbar sein

Dear Martine,

You were using two different drive mappings to access the common data from the two networked computer. For network support, each workstation needs to use the same network path (UNC path or mapped drive letter).

If "externally stored" images are being used, they too must be on an identical path accessible by the networked workstations. This issue is best avoided by keeping images stored internally in the central Image Archive.

Andy

It's also there that I installed the "data" folder of Studioline. I will send you the data path of the LOG by email. (sorry i'm not realy good in english).

Bonjour Martine - can you please be specific what technique you use to "link" the "database" to the TWO computers. Are you physically unplugging one USB drive from one computer, and plugging it into the second PC, and later back to the first?

Or is the external drive connected permanently to ONE of your two computers, but both computers are on a local area network? Then you use Windows networking to set up "network shares" on the second computer to reference the drive letter of the external drive still connected to the first computer?

Hello,

If your future plans should be to access the same StudioLine data with more than 2 computers at the same time, you might consider to use the StudioLine product StudioLine Photo Pro 4.
Nevertheless, local installations on different computers, accessing the same data on an external device, is possible.
In the StudioLine data path, you can find a subfolder \Log , where StudioLine logs activities in the program.
Would you please zip Folder \Log and send the zipped logs to email address: Support_d@StudioLine.net so that we can inspect the logs.

Best regards,

Hello

I am currently checking for the purchase of 2 licenses. But I have a problem during my tests of the software. I have my images on an external drive, and I put the database there too. Everything works normally (mots clés (tag)). Then I link my 2nd computer to the same database. All is fine. However, when I close my computer number 1 and return to it, the link to the database no longer works, I must create a new one or select another one.

Is this normal?

Hallo

Beim Überprüfen meiner mehreren Speicherkarten auf neue Bilder, bevor sie endlich gelöscht werden um das Durcheinander zu beseitigen, werden plötzlich alle Bilder als neu identifiziert, obwohl , zumindest die meisten, sicher schon geladen wurden.
Auch bei Überprüfen meiner Handy-Fotos werden plötzlich alle als neu erkannt. Vor 2-3 Monaten hatte ich das Handy zuletzt "kopiert", da war das noch nicht passiert.
Woran kann das liegen?
Kann ich nachträglich auf doppelte Fotos prüfen?
Grüße

Hallo,

ich nehme an, Sie haben die Freeware StudioLine Photo Basic 4 installiert? Den Programm-Tab "Stichworte" gibt es in der Freeware StudioLine Photo Basic 4 nicht. Sie können eine 30-Tage Demo-Version von StudioLine Photo Classic 4 installieren, in der diese Funktionalität verfügbar ist:
http://www.studioline.net/DE/download/download-photo-classic/default.htm
Bei Gefallen, kann die Demoversion durch Kauf eines Aktivierungsschlüssels freigeschaltet werden.

Dear ChristerT,

This is another abnormal program termination. Again, I suggest you submit proper Customer Service Requests to us, using the software's "Help" menu. Make sure that you include the diagnostic log files for the day that the error occurred (e.g., from "some" days ago, in this case).
