Harry Harrison Posted August 23, 2022 Share Posted August 23, 2022 (edited) This problem may be unique to me but I was trying to do just that across a batch of 342 images. The problem arises if some of those images already have 10 supertags so you get a message like this, obviously these are my image refs: You've exceeded the limit for supertags on one or more of your selected images.Try removing Alamy refs R30DAF, 2GF5BDR, 2GF5BDH, WNBBR6, WNBC9C, WNB6N7, WNB7M5, WNB786, W41M63, R6B467, R6B43M, R6B3KM, R6B3KE, R6940P, R83TEW, R83TE3, R83TFR, R893AY, R30CXN, R30D21, R30D6J, R30D4B, R30CJW from selection. So you can remove them and apply the new supertag across those remaining, but what about those you have removed? So copy & paste the text into a word processor document, it doesn't have to be fancy, just something that has Find & Replace. Trim of the text to leave just the comma-separated image refs. R30DAF, 2GF5BDR, 2GF5BDH, WNBBR6, WNBC9C, WNB6N7, WNB7M5, WNB786, W41M63, R6B467, R6B43M, R6B3KM, R6B3KE, R6940P, R83TEW, R83TE3, R83TFR, R893AY, R30CXN, R30D21, R30D6J, R30D4B, R30CJW Then use Find and Replace to 'Find' the commas and replace with ' OR' (note the space). You get this: R30DAF OR 2GF5BDR OR 2GF5BDH OR WNBBR6 OR WNBC9C OR WNB6N7 OR WNB7M5 OR WNB786 OR W41M63 OR R6B467 OR R6B43M OR R6B3KM OR R6B3KE OR R6940P OR R83TEW OR R83TE3 OR R83TFR OR R893AY OR R30CXN OR R30D21 OR R30D6J OR R30D4B OR R30CJW Paste that back into the search field in AIM and it will find them, 32 in my case, and deal with their supertags issues. This works in the main Alamy search field as well of course, though I don't suppose anyone would want to do that. I tried 'AND' as the separator at first but that didn't work, fortunately 'OR' does. Of course it would be nice if AIM had the option to just find these image refs as well as to remove them from the current search. Apologies if this is old hat, or if there is another simpler way to achieve this. Edited August 23, 2022 by Harry Harrison 1 1 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
