Have you tried selecting a set of images from within PM and then applying an updated IPTC Stationary Pad to your selected set?

Have a look at http://thedambook.com/smf/index.php for workflow ideas.  I am adapting their concepts to my needs.

Let us know if you find another workflow discussion group.

Please note that I didn't say that it wouldn't be useful.  I only said that I never have received such a request.  I completely agree that having the ability to create predefined "project" folders would be a real help for this type of workflow.

You're the first to mention it and request it in the several years that I have been working on Photo Mechanic...

I would like to request this option...:)  I use DL Pro and would love to do everything with in PM.   Here is what I have created for a workflow that requires empty folders.

I have the root be the Customer name....

SAM_RACHAEL
--BW
--COLOR
--SEPIA
--JPGS
--WEB


As I edit the job the images get sorted into there proper folders so i can process them accordingly.  I then move the root folder through a series of folders that designate the location of the job at that point.    My system is much more complicated but this is a good example.  I currerntly have 20 folders created in every job and glad DL does it for me.

But a feature that I wish add was the ability to save folder creation preferences.   For example have a folder system for weddings and a different for sports and landscape.   Each job has a specific workflow and custom folders are needed.

Thanks for listening.....

When we add the feature it will have multiple settings.

I see there have been several new versions since I last tried the demo. Was any progress ever made on this feature?

Thanks,

Andrew

No, it did not make it into 4.5.
