Windows 8, the next version of Microsoft's PC operating system is designed to work on both tablets and traditional PCs. The home screen is filled with big, touchable panels which you can tap and swipe to get at other touch-based applications. Underneath the top touchy layer is the familiar old Windows, with a task bar, file manager and app icons.

Windows 8 and CyPics

CyPics was developed in Visual Basic 6 (VB6), a Microsoft product which has now been superseded.

The VB6 support goal for Win-8 is that applications will still work however experience with Win-7 was that some issues could not be resolved.

It is not economically viable to redevelop CyPics to support future versions of windows.

Future enhancements will only be to the CyPics metadata export options used to transfer information you have entered about your images to other suitable programs.

Migration to other applications

CyPics V4 introduced the capability to export CyPics cataloging information as industry standard metadata (XMP, EXIF & IPTC).

It is this capability you can use to migrate from CyPics to another application. You export the metadata from CyPics and import it into the new program.

Migrating from CyPics

Every program you may wish to migrate to is different and makes use of different metadata attributes as part of its interface. To get a successful transfer you need to be able to choose which metadata attribute to export CyPics cataloging information to. It is in this area that we will add additional options as requested wherever possible.

When we looked at suitable programs to transfer our own images to the standout programs were Adobe Lightroom 4 and Bibble 5 (now Corel AfterShot Pro). Corel AfterShot Pro was rejected as when you add additional metadata after the import it is held in proprietary files rather than as industry standard metadata.

Adobe has recently reduced the price of Lightroom 4 making it more affordable though still expensive when compared to CyPics. It provides similar features:

  • Keyword support
  • Smart Collections (the equivalent of Picture Sets)
  • Image filters (quick find)
  • Multiple image updating of metadata
  • Image printing
  • Export of images

Lightroom 4 also has some highly desirable features of its own:

  • All cataloguing information is held as metadata which means your images contain the descriptive information it is not held seperately where it can  be lost.
  • Hierachical keywords and the ability to use a controlled vocabulary.
  • Better keyword renaming
  • Support for RAW images and the ability to base the catalog on RAW images
  • Digital darkroom development
  • Support for video
  • Geotag and mapping support. Tagging images from GPS tracks.
  • Creation of photo books and their export to PDF as well as printing
  • Export of images to PDFand video
  • Export to the web

We have put up a guide based on our own experiences on migrating to Lightroom

 If you wish to write a guide for another application then we will publish it. The first step in determining how to migrate is to identify the which metadata fields are exposed by an application. To do this you should catalog a number of images filling out all available metadata. You can then use something like EXIF Tool to dump the metadata and determine what each displayed field maps to. If CyPics does not provide the export option to a particular metadata attribute then please contact us and where possible we will add it.

CyPics - Digital Photo Album Software

Innovative Photography Software providing a complete solution for your Digital Photography needs.

Catalog photos with our speedy photo entry process and save time. Update multiple images at once or process images serially. Manage images over multiple CDs with friendly names and CD sequencing. Hold up to 100,000 photos per album. Digital photo browsing can occur without loading the source CD or DVD.

Update the cataloguing information for many photos at once using a single form. Tri-state checkboxes control the update. Tested with over five thousand photos in a single update.

   multi-record updates

Optionally update images serially, retain values for subsequent photos by pegging fields.

Export the information you have entered into CyPics out to the photos themselves as XMP, EXIF or IPTC metadata. The cataloguing information now becomes independant of the album and will persist for the life of the photo. This means that cataloguing is no longer tied to CyPics and MS Windows but can be re-imported into any photographic software system capable of handling image metadata. This should still be true in 100 years.

Manually geotag images by including latitude and longitude references as attributes then export this to the appropriate metadata elements. Accepts Google Earth notation.

Satisfied Users:

I've been using CyPics for three years with more than 10,000 photos cataloged.  This is the best full-featured program on the market for photo cataloging.  Even novices can appreciate this intuitive program's features.

Recently I tried-out Adobe's Photoshop 5.0 which came bundled with my new Nikon D70.  On the surface it looked like Photoshop would be a good program but only a few photos into the cataloging process I realized that it had major shortcomings--namely the inability to make easy selections of "keywords" used to describe each photo.  CyPics does this better than any program out there.

Forget PhotoShop.  Get'll be much happier with the result--especially after you've entered details for more than a few photos.
