Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.


Organize Photos

A wedding photographer wanted to be able to upload hundreds of photos of a days work and quickly evaluate, rotate, and sort promising photos and delete the bad photos.

He used FileBoss image viewer to quickly filter the bad from the good and, combined with Drop Targets, quickly sorted the good photos into structured folders.

(And he later used FileBoss' powerful renaming facility along with the image viewer to give the photos meaningful names for his clients.) 


Create the Folders for the Photos

   Right-click on the top-most folder and select 'New Folder'. After each new folder is created it will be have the focus and be ready for you to give it a new name.

   Either create Drop Targets from these folders one-by-one or in groups by selecting them and then using the main menu command Window > Drop Targets > Create from Selected or simply use the Window > Drop Targets > Create (One or More) command.

   If the Drop Target list is not already displayed FileBoss will automatically display it for you:


Display FileBoss's Internal Image Viewer

   Use the main menu command Window > Graphic Preview to toggle on the Image Preview window. The Image Preview window will will display any graphic file when that file is clicked or moved to with the arrow keys.

Optionally Rotate Images

   To quickly rotate images so Uncle Henry is standing on his head use the Ctrl+Right Arrow and Ctrl+Left Arrow keys. To save time images will automatically be saved with the new orientation when the focus is moved to another file.
