Made 4 image changes to existing album (created under pev v15.x)
Uploading to Jalbum and see the entire album is being re-uploaded.
Crazy... what waste of time and bandwidth.
What is the reason?
Does this mean that if I make changes to existing uploaded albums, they too will have have a 100% re-upload?
(that i something i will not do)
Note: v15 will unfortunately need to initially reprocess all images when making album projects made with earlier jAlbum versions. From now on, further reprocessing should not be needed. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
I try and keep Jalbum up to date.
This album was created after 15 Nov17 and am quite sure it was v15.
Looking through the Jalbum files, the earliest file date is 19Nov17
It was also my first experience with the Tiger skin (if that is of any assistance)
Hi, The trigger to recalculate images is any change to image size, scaling quality or image filters. If neither of these parameters change, the images should not be reprocessed or re-uploaded. Ensure you have "Save project on make album" checked under jAlbum Preferences. This avoids a classic behavior pattern that causes unwanted reprocessing, namely:
1) User sets up an album project using certain settings and saves the project
2) User makes additional images setting changes and makes the album
3) User closes the album project or jAlbum without saving the last changes made to the image settings
4) User opens album project later on and adds images and makes album. Now all images are reprocessed as the recently opened album project's image settings don't match the settings used when the album was last made.
This scenario is effectively avoided by checking "Save project on make album" under jAlbum Preferences.
We've now discovered a bug that sometimes causes regeneration (and therefore reupload) of all images when using jAlbum 15 and above (actually the combination of jAlbum 15 and Java 9 meaning Mac version is unaffected). The problem has now been fixed. To apply the fix, ensure you run jAlbum 15.1, then select Tools->External tools->"jAlbum core update" and restart jAlbum when prompted. The splash screen should now say 15.1.2. Try making the album again. It may regenerate all images once more, but should then never more regenerate images unless you make changes to the image settings.
We're truly sorry for the inconvenience this bug has caused you. It was really tricky to find and partly caused by internal changes in the underlying Java engine.
Apparently this bug came back in vesieons 17 and 18 ?
Not that anyone is aware of. Please describe the behavior you're seeing.
ETA: If you change image settings, make an album, and close the project without saving it (you are prompted to do this, so always say "Yes"), then reopen the project and add some images, a "make album" will, indeed, reprocess the images. This is the scenario David has described, above. That hasn't changed, nor can it. If you don't save the changed project settings, the application can't guess what you've done.
The core fix mentioned involved something quite different.
