Importing Folders of Photos cross platform
I just received a very nice answer to my question about extracting a string from my file path in the hopes I could use it to navigate to referenced images from a photocatalog database. Keen. (Thank You, PhilModJunk)
However I was amiss on the larger issue of importing referenced photos to begin with. I created a database and imported folders of pics on my Win machine. Then when I opened the db on my Mac - no images, there; just a disappointing message: The file cannot be found:name.jpg in the container field. All other data is of course there..
What I really need to do first is import 600+ images so their referenced images can be viewed on either Mac or Win. In Sep 2011 a wonderful thread helped me to insert text docs one at a time.(CF Container image reference issue across system platforms).
Now I have dozens of folders of images that bosses are asking to access. Can this same system work with folders? I can't bring myself to add pics one by one - argh. Sigh. Any help - greatly appreciated.
