Display of in-device geotagged photos: add recursive search

Georg D shared this idea 11 months ago

In v3.18.2 a new feature for display of in-device geotagged photos was added. I played around and had the impression it does not work reliably - a few photos appeared, but the majority not. In http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/show-a-localized-photo-in-locus#comment-29757 I found the reason: Photos are only searched in the defined folder, not recursive in sub folders. As I do have more then a hundred photo folders - besides one "general" one also one for each trip, event... with more photos - adding each of them is simply tedious, also I must remember to add new folders.

=> I'd like photo search to be recursive. Who's fearing performance impacts can simply select lowest directory level and have the current behaviour.

Good day Georg,

in next version will be option to

- turn on/off certain "added folders", so it is not needed to add/remove them from the list

- enable option "include subdirectories", that will handle also first level subdirectories, not recursively!

I believe this first level will be enough for most of users.

Hi Menion, 1 level is fine for me and works in v 3.18.9 - thank you :)
