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?

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.

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.
