    Photo Folders

    Wondering if something could be done to improve how folders of photos are displayed..... Its an old(ish) photo, but still seems to apply.
  2. Hi I have a well organized photo collection where I maintain different albums; my problem is: Emby will generate a cover photo (primary and thumbnail images) for each album when it scans it first; later; I choose a particular image to be the album's primary image, and I set it manually as primary and thumbnail images. but after few days, I found that emby will regenerate a new cover image (most probably it's the same that was generated the first time); now my concerns are: I renamed the primary images as folder.jpg and tried also backdrop.jpg; why emby doesn't pick these by default, like it does in media collection (movies and TV shows) I locked further updates from metadata editor; which by default locks the updates for images; but still primary and thumbnail images are changed. Is there any basis or criteria based on which emby will generate the cover image? and if not is it possible to consider folder.jpg or backdrop.jpg as default primary and thumbnail images? Regards, DaN
  3. I have a folder/sub folder structure for my family photos. Navigating with the client apps is very difficult. 1. You are presented with a tiled layout of thumbnail squares. Which ones are subfolders? Which ones are just pictures? There should be a way to easily glance at the screen and identify folders. 2. Folders are mixed in with pictures. If you have a folder with a mix of sub folders and pictures, the sub folder could be # 50, or 500 in the list. Folders should by default all be at the top/left of the viewing area. I would suggest: 1. An option to disable thumbnails for folders. 2. An option to enable a highlighted border around folders. 3. An option to default sort so that folders are all at the top/left of the viewing area. 4. Maybe a completely different UI element for a tile representing a folder. Maybe something that looks like a folder.

    Missing media folders in Photos

    Hi, and Merry Christmas to you all! I run Emby Server version 3.0.5781.9, updated today. In the Photos section I have fodlers for every year, but Emby only sees a few of them. In the screenshot below you can see that Emby only shows three folders, and a file manager showing all the folders that are really there. All folders only contain subfolders and jpg files. I also attach the latest log file. Any ideas what's wrong? The Emby server runs on Linux Mint, and here it is accessed through Chrome on another Linux Mint PC. I have some other issues as well, but I'll start new threads for them. Log.txt
  5. Photo album/folder contains "folder.jpg" and/or "folder.png". Issue: 1. folder.jpg nor folder.png is displayed as album image 2. folder.jpg nor folder.png images are displayed as album member IMHO: At a minimum folder.jpg and folder.png images should be displayed within the album. Ideally, the folder.jpg/folder.png image should be displayed as the image for the album or a dynamically generated collage if no folder.jpg/folder.png is present. Thanks for your attention.

    Server - Photo Rotate

    The ability to rotate photos online would be a great asset (mainly as now some photos that are ok in other programs are wrong in MBS)
  7. First I want to Introduce my base Photos ---Year ------Month ---------Photo.jpg Atm there are two ways of showing photo folders: 1. With Style 2. Without Style (same as folder view) When Style is activated for a photo folder, it looks like this: As you can see, there are is no underline text which describes the photo or folder name, in this case the different months. In further versions it seems the folder name was written by Imagemagick into the picture, but for some reason this is gone. Additionally, all photos from the subfolders get replicated to the top level, as you can see. When clicking on a photo, you get a popup of a large photo version like this, which is very nice: In opposite, the same view with Style disabled looks like this: As you can see, this is much more overseeable in my opinion. So I would like to keep the Syle option disabled. But now to my problem. When I click on a photo with Style disabled, it looks like a TV Series episode details page with no possibility to enlarge the small photo: Request for Webview, Android (perhaps another platforms I cannot test are affected): Is it possible to have a large photo popup instead of a TV Episode Details Screen when the Style option for a photo folder is disabled. If that's not possible, please disable the photo replicates to the top folder level and activate a folder/photo name line under the pics when the Style option is enabled.
  8. Server Version 3.0.5675.1 Browser Firefox 39.0 Zip files make traversing folder structure behave erratically. Recursive albums (folders) does not appear to be supported. For example: Family-> ........Immediate/ ...................Summer Vacations/ ...................................1990/ ...................................1991/ ........Cousin A/ ........Grandma/ In Album mode (top level folder) contents are flatten for display (i.e. contents of all sub-folders are displayed along with contents of top-level folder). Icon for sub-folders display name of parent folder. (This may go away if recursive album(folder) structure is handled differently than it is currently. Poster/Backdrop option is not present in all Photo views (i.e., Top-level and most sub-folders). In those views that do offer Poster/Backdrop option, selecting an option here changes that option in other Home videos views. There appear to be many other anomalies (mainly traversing the metadata) either due to recursive albums not being supported or misunderstanding on my part. Emby for Media Center appears to handle recursive albums as expected.

    Photo thumbnail generation

    Hi all, Emby server used to create thumbnails for my photo/image folders. These would appear on both web and roku client. Now this thumbnail generation is not working. Is there any means to explicitly invoke the server to do it? How can I provide a log on this? Thanks
  10. Due to the Library Scan stalling issues with the Dev MBS build, I installed Beta MBS on a separate PC and copied all of the libraries (TV, Movies and Photos) I use in Dev to the Beta setup, but the library scan is still stalling. This is where it stalls - it seems to be the same place in Beta and Dev: 2015-03-09 12:07:47.1620 Debug - App: Running PhotoAlbumImageProvider for \\MEDIASERVER-2\Photos\2010\05.

    Photo display order

    Just realised that if a photo folder has photos and folders in it, the folders are listed at the end rather than the beginning where I'd expect to see them. I noticed this first in the Android app, but it's the same in the web client. Is there a way to get folders displayed before photos please?
  12. Hi, I love the android client, it's one of the reasons I bough an Android tablet; I'd love to have a Slideshow feature added to the client; a decent transition time and effects in controls will do great. I think such powerful media center with music player which is well controlled, is still missing a good slideshow player that can be used to display the photo collection in my MB library. Regards, DaN
  13. I have a lot zipped manga and photos. It would be nice if i pointed the server to the folder with my manga and it would let me read it without having to unzip the files even better if it would scrape data from a source such as http://www.mangaupdates.com . Also when i open an image all i get is a small photo and clicking it again brings me to metadata of the photo i see no way to fully view the image,attached is a screenshot of a how a photo is shown, a nicer photo viewing experience would be nice like a slide show of all the photos in a folder/zip file.

    Photo images change

    When I set an image for a folder containing photos (in Metadata Manager) a file poster.jpg is created in the directory. After a while ALL photo's in the directory shows the "Primary Image" the same as poster.jpg. This causes all photo's (in any client) to be exactly the same and the photo itself is not displayed. I have also tried to set the "Image Update" option to off for the different photos but it does not help either. What am I doing wrong?
  15. The "People feature" in MB is great. I would like to use this for my Photo Library. Whilst this can be done through Metadata Manager this will take ages to do for 1000's of photos. I use Picasa for identification of people in my photos (especially as Picasa does a pretty decent job of automatically identifying people in photo's). I am no programmer but was wondering if somebody could create something (a plug-in maybe) that can read data from Picasa and update the MB metadata.

    Wrong sort order on Photo folders

    Hi, I am running MediaBrowser Server (Version 3.0.5238.39498) on a Windows 8.1 box. I also use HTML, Roku, Windows and Android apps as clients. I understand the photo folder support is kind of initial and hope there will be lots of improvement on this. I have, though, a problem that seems to be very simple: the display order of the images seems to be random when I choose "sort by name" (ascending or descending). Both on the HTML, Roku, Android and Windows apps, this sort by name simply does not work. Is there any procedure/configuration I could do to solve this? Thanks
