Explore and file extention ordering/filtering

Hello,

I'm looking for a way to sort the Explore window with the extention sort or filtering.

I mostly use Jalbum to share image and video with my familly.

I recently change my workflow to simplify it (reduce folders and paths). I now export JPEG along with my raw CR2 files within the same folder. I also use the "link to folder" to create a new folder.

I'm looking for a way to sort out the RAW from JPEG files. Ideally to automatically exclude all RAW files from the explorer interface. Is there a way to do something like that ?

Thanks
JeffTucker

The easiest way, I think, would be to use the "ignore pattern" to tell jAlbum to pay no attention to files with the RAW extension.

If the jpeg and raw files have the same base name, then the raw file should not get processed, see https://jalbum.net/help/en/JAlbum/Edit/RAW
"Converts the RAW file to a jpg file in the album's output, it does not create a jpg file within the project itself. If a jpg image with the same base filename is added then the jpg image will be used for the album and the RAW file will not get processed."

Is that not the case?

Or is it you just don't want to see them?

Thank's RobM for your help.

I would like to hide the CR2 from the explorer interface and then select the JPEG that I wish to process. I might not want to process all JPEG files that are in the folder.

Thanks JGromit.

I'll check with "ignore pattern". I have to check regular expression before. It's been a long time, I'm a bit rusted.

Yes, I used to be able to crank out complex regex without thinking twice about it, but these days, I need to head-scratch about it.

My Nikon RAW files are all something like mydog.NEF. To ignore them, this ignore pattern should do the trick (adding to the files that are already ignored):
\..*|.*\.NEF
ETA: That does cause jAlbum to ignore the NEF files when building the album, but they still show in the Explore view. If you refresh the display (F5), the NEF's are excluded, but still visible.

I think I would prefer to have jAlbum handle this differently....

ETA: It gets stranger. If you add both mydog.JPG and mydog.NEF, the NEF is excluded, but remains visible. If you add only mydog.NEF, without its related JPG file, it finally does disappear from the Explore view after you refresh the display.

It worked just fine !

".*\.CR2|.*\.TIF"

Exactly just what I wanted.

Thank you both for your help

To do that, you can use the regular jAlbum Exclude option. Choose the JPG's you don't want to include in this project (click, or CTRL-click for selected ones, or SHIFT-click for a whole range), then click the Exclude icon at the top (looks like a "do not enter" traffic sign) or just hit the "minus" key on your keyboard.
