Topic: Basic 4 hangs while loading.
Thank you for reporting back.

Generally, loading a few hundred images should only take a few minutes; it's something users (incl. myself) do on a regular basis. So there may be other factors in play here - such as the speed and/or connection type to the device where those images were loading from, or whether something unique with these images, metadata, or their path caused StudioLine to wait for some error-handling, retries and timeouts to occur after each photo, etc. Another issued could be the speed and connectivity to the device/path hosting the "StudioLine Data" folder, where the database is kept.


If this were to be a persistent issue, contextual / environmental details and version information would be needed to zero in on whatever causes. StudioLine is also able to generate diagnostic log files, that would help us learn the specific I/O, database or other actions that are atypically slow in your case.

You can close this issue. I had been letting Basic 4 run for only 15 to 20 minutes. Just to see, I let it run overnight, and by morning it had finished. Apparently it takes a lot of time for certain operations. Anyway, I will now exercise more patience.smile

Topic: Basic 4 hangs while loading.
Hi,

What's the context? Did this used to work in the past months - and it only started happening today? If so, what has changed in the operating system, hardware config, file/folders, external drives, etc. since it had last worked successfully?
Also, if this is an existing StudioLine Photo Basic installation, what's the specific StudioLine version number?

Or is this the first attempted usage after having downloaded the current version from our web site and installing that?

In Windows 10 Pro fully up to date, Basic 4, on startup, pops up a message with a progress bar: Loading Image Information / 1 of 551 Files / 0% done. But it just sits there. The Windows Task Manager shows some CPU activity, but nothing seems to move it along. If I stop Basic 4 (click on the red X) the closing message appears, but that too hangs and the app never stops. The only way to stop it is to kill the job in the Task Manager. How can I get past this? Thank you.

Adding to what Mike already suggested, once you publish a set of photos to MediaCenter there are a number of different "views" you can choose from. Besides the aforementioned slide show, there is also a "List View" in case you prefer your viewers to get more of an overview, where the textual information appears next to each thumbnail.

Hi Bill,

You could share a slideshow on MediaCenter. It's possible to enter descriptions too. See the Workshop on:

Hi Andy,

Is it possible to create and save a slide show to send as a report? If so, can I add description text to each photo? Thanks... my email: billder99@gmail.com

Topic: Photo Pro - Client über VPN
Die Zugriffsmethodik von StudioLine ist fuer LAN (also lokale) Netzwerkgeschwindigkeiten ausgelegt - also unterstellt hunderte von Mbit/sec oder Gbit/sec in beiden Richtungen. Ein VPN kann einem entfernt-stationiertem Anwender zwar scheinbar-lokale Berechtigungen simulieren, aber das aendert nichts an der vergleichsweisen langsamen Verbindungs-Geschwindigkeit ueber's Internet und hohen Latenzzeiten.

Statt dass der UK Kollege die zentralen Datenbank-Zugriffe ueber's VPN remote ausfuehrt, ist es sinnvoller diesem Anwender in Deutschland einen Remote-Desktop einzurichten, so dass StudioLine fuer ihn wirklich lokal im deutschen LAN agiert.

Hallo
ich habe eine Datenbank auf einem Server installiert, auf den 2 User direkt zugreifen. Geht alles wunderbar, vor allem die Verschlagwortung und Suche funktioniert so wie wir es brauchen.
Allerdings soll ein Kollege aus UK über eine VPN Verbindung auch auf unseren Bildbestand zugreifen. Die VPN Verbindung ist eigentlich ganz flott, aber die Kommunikation Client - Server ist sehr, sehr langsam. Hat da irgendwer einen Tipp ?

Danke und eine schöne Vorweihnachtszeit !

Dear Ben - just to avoid a potential misunderstanding: iTunes is not "preventing" you from seeing your iPhone, it's just not also "enabling" it to appear as a simulated drive that then could be accessed by regular Windows applications.
So - iTunes is not "broken", consequently there is no fix. It's just Apple's decision on how accessible they want to make the files stored on iPhones under Windows.

I'm curious, when you open that "Apple iPhone" item in Windows Explorer, will it let you browse all the way to the photos that you hope to import?
(If so, you should be able to copy them to a local Windows folder and use that to import into StudioLine.)

Many thanks Andy, if i understand correctly are you saying that as i have itunes on my PC it might be preventing SL seeing the device? That would be surprising as most people with an iphone will have itunes on their PC and so if i have understood correctly these people would not be able to upload from iphone to SL?

Have i understood correctly? If so is there a fix for this?


Note: I can see the iphone in the windows explorer as 'Apple Iphone' but when i look in the SL load assistant it does not appear

Topic: Uploading images from iphone
Hi Ben,

It's possible that you are using some third party software (such as iTunes), which has proprietary knowledge on how to access your iPhone through your USB cable. However, that access might be strictly exclusive to that particular software -- not generally available to "regular" Windows applications, such as StudioLine.

For Windows itself (and thus, regular Windows applications) to see the files on your iPhone, your phone would have to appear as a device (e.g., a USB drive) in your Windows Explorer.


Not all third party applications include the necessary general device driver to simulate external hardware (i.e. your iPhone) as if it was a Windows disk drive of sorts.

Dear Ben,

StudioLine is able to import files/photos directly from any devices that simulate a "drive letter" in your Windows PC. Do you have your iPhone wired to your computer?

Alternatively, you can install Apple's "iCloud" App onto your Windows PC. It will add your regular iCloud Drive to your Windows Explorer, and it will also give you the option to "download" photos from your iCloud Photos into your Windows PC - from where you can then load your pictures into StudioLine like any other Windows file.

Thank you for your interest. StudioLine will generate static pages with fix screen positions for all elements (other adjusting margins for centering). The layouts are not responsive to different devices.

Does studioline automatically creates the different formats for desktop, tablet and mobile?
Or do I have to manually resize each page to suit each format?
