Currently when I have created a new jpeg/tiff within a folder that is already catalogued, I have to go into Navigator, select it and click CMD CTRL A to add it to my catalog (which I have already selected), or right click etc.

What I'd really like to do, is work on a particular folder, and afterwards select all of the images that haven't been catalogued yet and add them in. So I would like a way to select all of the images which do not have a green or yellow status within that folder, and then be able to catalog them in one action.

I know I can sync the folder, but it may be over 1000 images and I may only want to add 10 or so and they may be spread around the folder, so currently I'm trying to remember to do it on a one by one basis.

I've looked and can't see any way to do this currently.

The "Select Missing" command on the Edit menu will select items that have the yellow indicator on them.

We'll have to add a "Select Uncataloged" command as well.

Yes I know it's sort of working backwards, but I was hoping since the status colour is there, it may perhaps be easy to add it in, and I'd find it so useful.
I can see as a user, we would have to make sure we have the right catalog selected, for it to work.

Keep up the good work. The more I use Photo Mechanic Plus, the more I love it.
