It's a tool that will show you unused files in your folders CreditPhotos, ScenePhotos and (optionally) cover images.

It also allows you to remove these files. Of course, you do so at your own risk.

DJ,
any possibility to alter the paths for

C:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\DVD Profiler\CreditPhotos
C:\Users\xxxxx\Documents\DVD Profiler\ScenePhotos
C:\Users\xxxxx\DVD Profiler\Databases\Default

to its German counterpart i.e. C:\Benutzer\...

I'm reading the paths directly out of DVD Profiler's configuration (regedit.exe -> HKEY_Current_User -> Software -> Invelos Software -> DVD Profiler -> PathCreditPhotos)

What you see in Windows Vista and 7 called "C:\Benutzer" is just a trick on the eye Windows plays to you.

Since Vista there is no more language localization on the file system. No more "C:\Programme" on german versions and "C:\ Program Files" on english versions. It's all english now and what you see in Explorer is just a mask.

I wouldn't even know how to mimic that, but rest assured, the path is correct. It's what you have configured under DVD Profiler -> Tools -> Options -> File Folders

Hmm, after I set the path for the collection file and process it, a 'Done' window appears but nothing else happens. I don't have data in any of the sections.

First question: Do you even have personal Credit Photos or Scene Photos?

If you activate the search for unused cover images you should at least see something on the Cover Images -> Valid Cover Images tab if you have set the database folder correctly.

Nope, DJ, as I drag and drop new credit photos directly unto the appropriate cast or crew entry, I actually don't have folders with them stored in. This answers, why I have Credit and Scene photos scections empty.

I now set the database folder correctly and all cover images show up in the valid section.

Version 1.1 now finds invalid Credit Photo folders for profiles that don't exist (anymore).

In the far back of my mind I was aware that you can store credit photos individually by profile and not just generally. But I had forgotten it by the time I wrote version 1.0 of this tool.

Version 1.2 is now available.

It allows to search for invalid credit photos within valid credit photo folders.

Since there are so many tabs now, I've extended the help file and also referenced Doug's Knowledge Base for naming conventions.

Check it out.

Sometimes I want to reuse a specific headshot in another profile before deleting it. Is It possible to have a copy function on photos ?
