Cataloging images

Top  Previous  Next

 

Cataloging images is the concept of assigning catalog labels to images. In IDimager jargon we call an image “cataloged” once it has one or more catalog labels assigned to it. This can be achieved in four possible ways. The first way is by using the the Label Assignment Panel, the second way is by using the Collection Viewer (thumbnail Quick Cataloging), the third way is by using the Catalog Assignment mode, and the fourth is by using Keyboard Shortcut Assignments.

 

The simple fact that an image is known to the database does not mean that it is cataloged. An image is considered cataloged once it gets one or more catalog labels assigned to it. All the images that don't have catalog labels assigned to them may be known to the database, and will be considered "Uncataloged".

 

Now let's see how images can become part of the catalog database.
