Find and select missing images in catalogue
« on: October 12, 2020, 11:01:41 AM »
Hi,

maybe I am missing something, but I can't find a way to find and select missing images in the catalogue. Usually I go through my images in Capture One and delete the no-keeper images. In a catalogue previously indexed by PM+ I can see those images afterwards with a red label and no preview but I can't find an automated way to select an remove them from the PM+ catalogue. C1 or LR have this functionality.

Thanks on congrats on PM+.

So did iView / Media Pro - definitely needed IMO.

Hello

I was able to get the list of missing images with the CATALOGUE SYNC command.
Luckily they were all in the same folder; with the choice of the path I was able to remove them all.
More difficult if they had been scattered

Hi,

could you explain how? After "catalogue sync" they get displayed as missing with a red text label but how where you able to select them? Of course I could select one by one manually, but there should be an easier way. A filter setting for example?

Thanks.

She made note of the common folder containing the missing images and then opened that folder, selected all, and removed them.

To be clear, what you're wanting is a feature where given a set of images in a Contact Sheet tab (whether it be a folder-based tab or a catalog-based tab) you want to find the images that are missing and mark them as selected, correct?

Hi Kirk,

Yes, that's correct. That would be great. Which way, filters, etc, doesn't matter much. Often I see myself revisiting projects in Capture One and delete the no keepers, long time after a job has been finished. I do the same with the JPGs after some time when shooting RAW+JPG. This keeps my disk space a bit lower.

Thanks!
