Re: [Solved] Find files with resource forks

Thanks. Initially I thought none of the images had resource forks because the GC alert was always "0 files with a resource fork was selected". But later I noticed that there were, indeed, 282 files with resource forks selected in the Browser list. I was surprised to find that the combined size of th...

[Solved] Find files with resource forks

Is it possible to filter files that have resource forks in the Browser?

I try to avoid resource forks but some apps still create them. I'd like to zap all of them via Misc > Remove Resource Fork before archiving the images or using them on non-Mac environments.

Re: Pre-1920 EXIF date weirdness

"1921 east european time zone was in effect 1.5.1921. It was +20 min 10,9 sec the previous time." https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suomen_aika That date is indeed the breaking point for this effect. So maybe because I get +11 seconds (or +22 seconds for file rename??) for times before 1921-0501 relates...

Re: Filename to file creation & modification date

I have old video files I want Apple Photos to sort correctly. "Set Exif Date from Filename..." command is very useful there: It seems 1970-0101-0000-00 is the earliest possible .mp4 QuickTime Create/Modify Date. Any earlier filename date has no effect to that field. But Apple Photos gets the date fr...

Re: Filename to file creation & modification date

Thanks, "Set Exif Date from Filename..." command works fine! (But daylight savings time and renaming via EXIF produce some unexpected weird errors with video files, see below.) Somehow I missed that command. I wasn't aware that GC supported EXIF in video files. What codecs (H.264, Photo-JPEG, ...) o...

Filename to file creation & modification date

Can I copy filename to file creation & modification date with GC? 2005-1012-1203-29.mp4 for example (YYYY-MMDD-hhmm-ss.mp4), but I can use another date date format in the filename, if necessary. I have several hundred old video files (H.263 .3gp, Photo-JPEG .mov, Motion JPEG OpenDML .avi) that Apple...

Compressing .tif

I have scanned several hundred old photos as 600ppi 48bit color .tif files with Canon CanoScan LiDE 220. I added EXIF dates and IPTC Captions and Keywords with GC, exported as .jpg via Lightroom and added more metadata with GC. I now noticed that the .tif files are uncompressed and I'd like to compr...

Re: [Solved] Google Photos incorrectly sorts images

Thanks! I have missed this option because I don't want any of the numerous other date fields conflicting with the EXIF date when sorting the images chronologically.

Re: [Solved] Caption can not be edited

Thanks, now it works perfectly!

Is this the default setting or is there some reason someone might want to preserve those obsolete IFDO Image Descriptions after they are transferred to IPTC/XMP Captions?

Re: Caption can not be edited

The edited Caption is displayed only if I make it longer (in a test file the Caption must be longer than 43 characters for it to display). If I shorten it back, the old Caption is displayed again. It seems the old nagging Caption is in the IFDO Image Description. It seems I can delete it via "Delete...
