4.2.4: No thumbnail extension when output = orig
Oct 12th, 2007 at 12:41am
 
When the output format in the Thumbnail plug in is set to "original", it is supposed to set the extension the same as the original image.

Starting with 4.2.4, I found that many thumbnail images generated by Watch Directory no longer include an extension.

Hi,

Can you send me one of those images (the original, not the thumbnail) so I can try to reproduce this?

It works for me (4.2.5 beta, but the thumb plugin has not changed)....

Can you post this file (with your thumbnail settings):

<task directory>\<yourtaskname>.config

<task directory>: press CTRL+9 inside the watchDirectory Control Center to explore this directory
<yourtaskname>: the name of your task

Maybe it is a combination of your settings that causes this.

I just tried with your settings (only changed the monitored directory and the output directory), and it worked fine for the example picture you have posted.
I will do some more testing tomorrow (with 4.2.4), a few questions first:

* can you reliably reproduce this problem with the picture you posted above (does it always happen with that picture)
* did version 4.2.3 always work ok?

Correction - I reproduced it now. If I paste a lot of pictures in the directory fast, I get the same thing.
I will look into fixing this tomorrow.

Ok, I think I have fixed it - will do some more testing tomorrow and publish a new build on the beta forum.

For now, with your settings, you can get the correct behavior if you enable the option "Place them in sub-directories corresponding....." (second option for the thumbnail plugin).

Hi,

When will the fix be updated? It's still happening even when the subfolder option is checked.

Hi,

The fix is in the current (4.2.5) release: http://www.watchdirectory.net/download.html released last week.
If you install it "on top" of your current install (as it will do by default), it will keep your settings/tasks.
