Add Path Name to Filename

Post by JT-TayFHC » 18 Dec 2018, 02:38

Please add the name of the path to the front of the filename. My filenames are too generic (camera-generated) to know when/where/what folder the photo came from. I organize all my photos into a well-named set of paths. Don't need the whole path, just the current folder and the previous folder name.

Is this already in the Pro version?

You can display the full path to the current photo even in the free version. You can do in the screensaver settings, Viewer tab, Text section. Here is a generic tutorial on using viewer text:

In the Pro version you can also display the name of the folder where current picture is stored as well as a lot of other useful picture information including meta data (EXIF and IPTC).

Since upgrading/replacing both of my Win10 computers I have had difficulties. The latest is with the photo's file info. In one computer it shows #ttPictureFileName instead of the actual file name. In the other it shows nothing. In the settings for Viewer/Text I have [#ttPictureFileName} after eliminating NoPath#. What is the correct setting to always show the file name with its path?
Also, I have no luck with emails getting through to Maxim Reva who has helped me in the past.

Yes, we're having problems with the hosting right now. We're working on it.

The correct text tag is:

[#ttPictureFullFileName#]

You can use the drop-down list in the [ Special tag ] section to select correct tags and [ Insert special tag ] button to use them without typing.
