I'm in the process of preparing a journey and working a lot with JA. And I found out that I do miss some features. Because I'm lazy to make screen shots, I recorded a video with some comments. Hopefully I missed what I'm looking for any you can help me out. Otherwise maybe team Sweden considers to think of improvements on this topic. TIA, Markus
There's something wrong with either your jAlbum install, or with the images you're providing it. I have no difficulty putting "color" flags on any jAlbum object - JPG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, MP4, etc. See screenshot. I do agree that there's currently no way to batch-mark them, however - it's one at a time.
The yellow warning triangles on your thumbnails might provide a clue - mouse-hover on one of them to determine why they're there.
Hmmm... No problem assigning a flag or star to that one.
I have a weak theory that it might be a permission problem. Open the image directory - Tools, Open directories, Image directory - and open the .jalbum subdirectory. For an image like mydog.jpg, there should be a mydog.jpg.info file. It's just a text file, and the contents should look something like this (which has a title and a flag - in this case, a blue "Review" flag):
That one puzzled me the first time I ran into it. The "star" rating is actually a slider. Just click and drag to the left, and you'll be back to "no stars."
I can confirm that, that works to unrate a picture, thanks. I would go for another, more user friendly GUI. Just look at the screen shot, which is from ACDSee, there is just another icon to reset the color and the rating.
