Version 1.9.0 is available for download.
The changes and improvements in this version are mainly focused around the Associate Photos feature and making the access to the Extras feature much self-evident and easier. This update also fixes a couple of compatibility issues with Lightroom version 2 and 3, as well as the TypeT@gs plugin for Piwigo.

Changes in this version:

  • Publish Service - All functions from the Extras section, such as Import Albums, Associate Images, Check Photos, etc. are now available right from the Publish Service Settings panel within Lightroom Publishing Manager.

  • Extras - Associate Photos: The photo matching algorithm has been significantly improved to provide a faster and more accurate matching, particularly when file names contain spaces and other non-alphanumeric characters.
  • Extras - Associate Photos: Added a new method of resolving matching conflicts - now you can prioritize pairing of rendered JPEG copies over raw originals.
  • Extras - Associate Photos: Added new matching method By File Number Suffix which compares only numeric image suffixes when searching for pairing candidates.
  • Extras - Associate Photos: Added new matching method By File Number Suffix and Capture Time which chooses candidates based on the combination of the numeric image suffix and photo capture time.

  • Extras - Associate Photos: Now when associating photos by capture time you can specify a timezone offset to compensate for the time difference between the server and the local computer, if needed.
  • Fixed the 'Missing method name' error in Lightroom 2 and 3.
  • Fixed the 'Tag already exists' error in Piwigo environments using the TypeT@gs plugin.
  • Other minor improvements and fixes.
