How to create main archive

  You have a large number of photographs taken at different times. You need to create a photo archive.
  Let us select the 'Drag & Drop' mode. (Fig. 1)

Fig. 1

  Set the source and destination folder first. Source folder is the top folder with the original photographs. In the destination folder will be built our archive. We assign the mirror folder for the copies of source files too.
  After that, we will set up the rules for the selection of photos. Usually, one day - is one event. Therefore all photos of the one day will have the same name, subject and keywords. So it is reasonable to set the option 'Select files of a fixed interval'. (Fig. 2)

Fig. 2

  This will simplify the group operations edit metadata. If the destination folder already contains images, we recommend to set the option 'Exclude duplicates'. (Fig. 3)

Fig. 3

  In this case they will not be selected for editing and will remain in the original location. In order that would have enabled these options, you must permit the filtering. Click option 'Enable / disable all settings'.
  Next, set the file extensions that will be processed. If the source folder contains 3D files with . jps, or .pns extensions, exclude them. (Fig. 4)

Fig. 4

  3D pictures should be edited separately. If you do not, they will be converted to standard .jpg files.
  Next we set up the option of renaming. Set '2I' on the first window. (Fig. 5).

  Then set the date model: 'YXMXDZ' (X set '-', Y set '_') and activate 'Clear auto increment'. (Fig. 6).

Fig. 6

  If the last parameter is active the auto-increment counter will by cleared when the creation date of the picture is changed. You can set other settings; the result will be shown in the line example.
  Set 'Alias' - 'Set new name as alias: ....'. (Fig. 7)

Fig. 7

  This will avoid overwriting files. Option 'Sort' is always active. However, you can control some parameters. The default is 'Sort by date'. (Fig. 8). Let it stays.

  Set 'Smart folder' option, as shown in the figure. (Fig. 9)

Fig. 9

  Such settings will lead to the following folder structure: 'Destination folder \ 2013 \ Jan \ FileName'.
  Quality of the output file is set to 'Bicubic' or 'High Quality Bicubic'. This gives the best results. (Fig. 10)

Fig. 10

  Set converting to .Jpg. It is the best to keep all files in archive in .jpg format. If necessary, we can always turn to the folder 'Mirror' where are all files in their original format and quality. (Fig. 11).

Fig. 11

  Turn off option 'Sizing and resolution'. In this case, all files will retain their original size and resolution. (Fig. 12)

Fig. 12

  In the option 'Post processing operations' mark all. Set 'Move source files to mirror folder' In the option 'Set mirror mode'. (Fig. 13)

Fig. 13

  In this case the source files will be moved to the mirror after editing and placement in the archive. The mirror folder will be created with the structure of folders and file names the same as in the archive.
  It is the end of configuration. Save the settings by clicking the 'Save mode settings', and then click 'Save and exit'.
  In the main window, uncheck 'Aspect ratio'. This will allow process images with any aspect ratio.
  Now press the button 'Start' and edit metadata. It is advisable to use the group editing operations. (Fig. 14)

Fig. 14

  After editing press the button 'Save'. The program will do the necessary action and return to the initial state. You can then click the button 'Start' again. It is not necessary to change any settings. Fastfotoscale will select the next portion of photos. Any number of sessions can be done.
