PM 4.6.6/7 upload and smugmug option 'replace duplicates'
« on: April 11, 2011, 12:49:51 AM »
when uploading to smugmug, it is not possible to specify how duplicates files must be handled.
smugmug offers 'replace duplicates', 'skip duplicates' and 'allow duplicates'
'replace duplicates' is very convenient when you have to update many already uploaded photos , as smugmug will retain any manual adjustments as arrangement or caption.
for the moment this is 'allow duplicates' which is applied
i have not found any place in smugmug to change this default, and there is no way to specify this option in PM (i think)
what do you think about this ?

Note: current workflow is in three step invoving three different applications
extract jpeg from NEF with PM (intermediate files)
reduce the size of the jpeg (another intermediate file)
send to smugmug

the workflow could be:
upload to smugmug from PM in ONE step by selecting directly the NEF, specify the reduced size ans 'replace duplicates'. All in one step, no intermediate files.

Best regards
Frédéric

No.  We have made no changes to any of the uploaders in some time now.
