Hi,

I'm on my last day of evaluation and I have mixed feelings. The overall impression is really good, but there are a some problems/bugs.

* I have imported some jpg from the camera (Nikon D70) and the thumbs were automatically rotated. But the thumbs quality was very bad. So I select the pictures, press Ctrl+B. The thumbs quality is now good, but the orientation of the pics is lost. The horizontal pictures are now displayed vertical. Sad

* How can I set options for the slideshow? Currently there are the annoying transformations used. There are other options to change: the time, each picture is shown; the background colour; the resize-mode (scale-up, scale-down, show 1:1, repeat after last pic ...)

* If I buy picajet 2.5 now, how much will future updates cost me?

Thanks, Matthias

And it's even worse: the orientation information is removed. Shocked Other viewer (acdsee) don't auto-rotate the pictures now.

I made a copy of the pictures before processing them with picajet; and the original pictures are auto-rotated with acdsee.

Left click in any area after slideshow launch. In the top of window you may see slideshow options bar.

Do you update EXIF/IPTC tags from PicaJet?

Hi,

thanks for fast reaction.

Idea I've tried with right-click, which normally shows actions you can do with the selected item (selection is with left-click). This is a also a problem with the manual. Search for 'slideshow' ...

Will all bugs be removed to version 2.99999 ? Wink

Yes, but 'Save Image orientation' was not selected. And picajet itself does not identify a vertical picture after Ctrl+B.

It happened again. Orientation is lost. Vertical pictures (which were shown correct) are now horizontal.

When I look into the EXIF I see this:

Vertical pictures have 'PicaJet FX' in field 'Software'. 'Orientation: Upper Left'

Horizontal pictures have 'Ver 2.0.' (Nikon D70 firmware) in field 'Software'. 'Orientation: Upper Left'

So picajet has changed the orientation field. But not the picture itself. Confused

For me, there are two ways to handle the orientation:

1. detect vertical picture. rotate it. unset the 'vertical flag'. save picture. every dumb picture viewer shows correct in future. but picture is changed.
2. detect vertical picture. rotate it when viewing. let exif data unchanged. dumb viewer will show picture not correct.

Here there is a strange mixture.

This sounds familiar to what I'm seeing with my dng files where there is a mis match between vertical/horizontal and the orientation of the image itself leading to a distorted thumbnail.

Are the images OK when PicaJet first loads them? My dngs look fine until Pica re-reads them to (I guess) generate a new thumbnail. This corresponds to when a pixellated jpg thumb would become clear.

Once Pica re-reads them I have the distorted thumb and sometimes a colour cast.
