FotoStation can integrate with FotoWeb so that you can use the FotoWeb taxonomy in the QuickList dialog in FotoStation.
FotoStation is a very efficient tool for managing taxonomies - you can add new items, edit existing items, or import a complete FotoStation QuickList into the taxonomy. You can use FotoStation to maintain the taxonomy in FotoWeb so that the FotoWare system can have a single up-to-date taxonomy source for all applications.
When using this taxonomy integration, all the changes you make in FotoStation are immediately available in FotoWeb and vice versa.
- To use a taxonomy for a specific field in FotoWeb, you must enable taxonomy for the field. For more information, see Enabling taxonomies for specific metadata fields.
- To allow users in a specific group to change the taxonomy, the group must have the Manage taxonomies administrative permission assigned to it. For more information, see Assigning administrative privileges to a group.
You must create a hierarchical QuickList file where you add your hostname and the relevant metadata field ID (and, optionally, a sorting command) to the QuickList file. In this case, the QuickList file acts as a proxy.
FotoStation uses the same QuickList filename convention to apply metadata from the taxonomy as from any other QuickList/linked list. You can even map to different fields following the QuickList naming conventions.
You can also apply multiple keywords with one click or prevent it by setting the #! APPLY_SELECTED_ONLY function.
Example: 025.txt file configured to connect to the Keywords taxonomy (field 025):
- Add the first line above to the relevant QuickList file, replacing
yoursite.fotoware.cloudwith your FotoWeb hostname and
025with the metadata field ID to which you want to connect the taxonomy.
- Optionally, add
#! SORT_SIBLINGS=0. Select
=1to display an alphabetically sorted list or
=0to display an unsorted list in FotoStation.
If you do not add this line, the order will be the same as in FotoWeb.
- Save the text file.
You can now work with FotoWeb taxonomies in FotoStation.
