With only 600GB of original JPEG images, I would just put them on a USB stick and have them available everywhere. Saves a lot of work, cheaply... :)

But there is a severe drawback: You would have to remember to clear the option each time you ingest new or updated files so that cache files are created. I don't know, but this does not sound very reliable when I am thinking about.
I have a Data-Driven Category that I think might help address the drawback that Thorsten points out - it allows all files that lack a Cache image to be identified:

   

   

...so before traveling, you could select all files in the NoCache Category, and do a Shift+Ctrl+F5, and select the Update Cache only option.

General Discussion and Questions / Export Locations?
Last post by axel.hennig - November 29, 2022, 11:24:06 AM
Is it possible to export Locations (Lat, Long, Altitude, Country, TimeZone, State, ZIP/City, Location, Keywords, Group,...)?

Reason: I would like to export my locations from my productive-DB and import it into a test-DB.

The category export uses XML because this format allows to export categories with all their properties, including the files associated to each category. This makes it possible to exchange categories between databases and users, provide pre-made set of categories etc.

I assume you want a list of category names (paths)?

You can export the names of categories assigned to files via the Text Export using a {File.Categories} variable.

You copy the category names of the files currently selected in a File Window into the clipboard with the Copy Data app, using the same variable.

If you need this urgently, you can write a small app (or copy the code below into an existing app).
This short code fragment fetches all categories in the database and outputs their names to the console:

let res = await IMWS.get('v1/categories', {
    id: 'all',
    recursive: true,
    fields: 'path'
});

for (let c of res.categories) {
    console.log(c.path);
}

or you use this short PowerShell script.
Copy and paste into a text file, name it dump-categories.ps1 and run it.

$response = Invoke-RestMethod 'http://127.0.0.1:50519/v1/categories?auth_token=&id=all&fields=path'
$categories = $response.categories
foreach ($c in $categories)
{
    write-host "$($c.path)"
}

The Category Export module creates an XML file but what about a simple list in text format like a CSV file? Any suggestions?

Apple will take care a shit about it. And that's the reason why I am on the move away from Apple.
