Xpiks - open source software for microstocker

Recommended Posts

Hi! :)

 

I just found the time to try out x-piks and it's an amazing piece of software! :)

 

However, I have a question (or feature suggestion?) - is it possible to copy not only keywords, but the whole set of meatada (keywords, title, description) from one image to another (or multiple images)?

 

That would be great if (made) possible!

 

Thanks in advance :)

Hi

 

This feature as you describe it will be available in the next release (1.4) which will be available soon.

 

For now you can simulate it with the following scenario:

- Select the images you want to fill from 1 image and that image itself

- press "Edit" (that will open multiple images edit dialog)

- select the image, which medatada you want to copy to the other images

- press "Assign from selected"

- ensure everything is like you want

- press save

 

Regards

If I also might suggest a feature for the upcoming version: alphabetical sort of keywords during keywording - it's easier to spot redundant keywords if they are arranged in some way :)

I don't think this is the same request as ubazon's but would it be possible to have all keywords added using the suggestion tool also copied to any picture that is currently "checked?" I have been selecting multiple pictures of the same type and then using the keyword suggestion tool, but when I click add keywords, it only adds them to the first picture and not all. 

 

Thanks! And Love the software btw.

Just select that images and press "Edit". You will be able to edit all of them at once (including using Keyword suggestion tool to add keywords to all of them at the same time)

Hi

 

It works like that: you either add vector file alongside with the preview or you add a preview and Xpiks automatically looks for vector file. You will see a small icon on the image saying that this is a preview with vector attached.

 

For the microstocks it makes no sense to keyword the EPS itself. You always keyword a preview and add vector separately.

 

Regards

Hello Carmen

That's a shame you see this error. First of all, which version of Windows 7 are you using? 32- or 64-bit one?

Secondly, can you confirm you see files "ssleay32.dll" and "libeay32.dll" in the same directory where you launch "xpiks-qt.exe" from?

Also maybe you have some antivirus which for some reason damages Xpiks distribution (quarantines aforementioned files etc.)?

Hello! Thank you for your reply and help!

I can see these 2 files. I am using the 32 bit version. I have Bitdefender as an antivirus. I have tried to click the file (from the Xpiks folder) named „ministaller” (do I have to click/ install this or not?), but the antivirus stops it every time. I do not have the files you mentioned in quarantine.

Hi again. Do not run ministaller.exe - this is just Xpiks updater (also you can add it to your Antivirus exceptions if you want Xpiks to be updated automatically next time).

Regarding "SSL connect error" - yes, I can confirm 32-bit version of Xpiks has some missing dependencies and I'm looking into it. I will let you know when you can redownload it. Thanks!

Please try downloading 32-bit version from the website again and write back to me if that works now for you.

The video part isn't working for me. The thumb nail images are black on import and the programme goes into 'not responding' mode on trying to save any changes. Metadata does import when I try again, but it's not visible on the actual files outside of Xpiks, and because I can't save in the programme I also can not move on to uploading.

I've also noticed other bugs with warnings for images. They aren't always correct and don't alaways update on making changes to correct the genuinely incorrect ones. IE Title has to many characters (202), on changing and saving shows as the same warning with (196) or whatever. When it should no longer be a warning at all.

Hi Linda

 

There was a known issue with video thumbnails. If your Xpiks version is lower than 1.5.0.5 then please download new one from the website. Regarding metadata saving - can you please elaborate on that? Also sending the logs will help a lot (http://xpiksapp.com/2015/09/03/how-to-report-an-error/)

 

I will look into the issue with warning as well, thank you for reporting it.

Hello!

Is there a way to change the number of keywords in a batch of images, fast and easily ?

I need to reduce the number of keys in his metas, go from the usual 50 to only 30, and I need to do it with about 4,000 images all with different metakeys... Let´s ay, delete the last 20 keys that each image has, whatever they are.

 

Thankssssssss

Hi

Of course this is possible. There're 2 ways to do it.

1. Batch Editing (tutorial https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/batch-basic/) using Partial changes (https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/batch-partial/) - you set new keywords in a batch. This way all images will have same keywords (the ones that you will specify)
2. Deleting keywords from a batch (https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/howto-delete-keywords/) - you specify keywords that you would like to remove in selected images. This way you will only remove keywords in a number of images in a batch.
