New to this forum want to say hello to everyone.

Here is my question:

I use Qimage to print onsite at events using my Macbook (bootcamp) and a tethered camera (shooting 700-1000kb fjpegs) which shoots to a folder that is being "watched" by Qimage. As images are saved to the folder I press F5 to refresh the folder. This works great.

However, I find that Qimage ends up rebuilding the thumbs over and over again whenever I try to do anything like adding images to the cue. This slows down Qimage often to a halt and makes getting prints done fast very frustrating. Furthermore, scrolling through thumbs becomes impossible as the browser jumps rows at a time.

I often end up dealing with 500-1000 images and this glitch is the only thing slowing me down as I often have to wait until the thumbs are rebuilt before I can proceed.

Is there a cause to this? Do I have something setup incorrectly?

Any help would help.

First, welcome to the forum! Qimage won't rebuild thumbnails unless it notices that the file date/time has changed. Is there any other software running that would be updating the file date/time stamps? If the file date/time stamps are changing, Qimage will think that it needs to rebuild the thumbnails.

Thanks for the welcome Mike.

Canon's Remote Capture is the only other program running. It is saving files to the folder that is in the Qimage folder view.
