M.Chapman Posted June 30, 2017 Share Posted June 30, 2017 I was hoping one of the benefits of the new AIM would be that I could add or delete tags across a selection of many images retrospectively. Deletion works, but adding a new tag frequently fails because "You've exceeded the limit for tags on one or more of your selected images". As a result the new tag isn't added to any of the images. If the batch of selected images is large, it's really difficult to find out which images already have the maximum number of tags, making it difficult to correct the problem. I'd like the way this function operates to be changed. I'd like to see a similar Warning message, but the new tag is added to all those images that have less than the maximum number of tags. Then, after the next database update, it will be easy to identify which images failed to have the new tag added by doing a new search including the NOT operator. As a purely illustrative example, suppose I want to add the tag City to all my pictures of Leicester that don't have this tag. This could then be done (relatively) easily as follows; In AIM, I search for images using the search string Leicester NOT City. Select all passed images and add the new tag City. The new tag will be added to most of them, but not to those that already contain the maximum number of tags. The next day (after a database update) I can repeat the search Leicester NOT City which will then show me all the images that failed to be updated and I can take action accordingly.
