Comparison of a gallery with new images
Step 1: Open a gallery.
Select the menu item "File/Open gallery..." or press
the tool button 2; set the required
gallery file via the opened standard dialog, then press the button
"Open". The list of the gallery images will be displayed
on the right pane. You can make coordination
of the gallery with the data source (directory on CD/HD)
after its opening.
Step 2: Select a source of new images.
Select the menu item "Tools/Compare with new images" or press
the tool button 7; set a type of a source
of new images (another gallery or a directory on a disk) via the opened
dialog; press the button "Browse" and select another gallery file or a root
directory where the new images are stored, then press the button "Next".
Step 3: Read the new images and compare them with the gallery.
Set the required values of parameters via the
opened dialog, then press the button "Compare".
If a directory has been selected as a source of new images all the images
within the directory are read out. If another gallery file has been selected
new imaging data come out from there. At that the additional gallery file
(source of the new images) will not be changed under further operations,
and it would be desirable to refresh it after
working with the main gallery has been finished.
Then all the new imaged are compared with ones from the first (main) gallery.
Resulting candidates of the similar images are displayed on the left pane
as pairs or groups of thumbnails.
Step 4: Look and analyze results, delete all unnecessary images.
The step is similar to the steps 3 and 4
of the previous section, except for the following: an image will be
deleted from the list of images (gallery file) if only it belongs
to the main gallery.
Step 5: Save the gallery.
Select the menu item "File/Save gallery" or press the
tool button 3.
If you want to keep the gallery in a new file, select the menu item "File/Save
gallery as..."; set the required path and assign a name to the new gallery
via the opened standard dialog, then press the button "Save".
Warning: in the mode of comparison with new images the lists of duplicates
and unlike images will not be saved.
