An error occurred while calling put_album_datalist on JetPhoto Server.
Error Code: 50

On Snow Leopard, the program isn’t able to ignore the null characters in your photo keywords and other metadata fields, this is the reason caused the error. Now you could download a update to fix the bug, please get a JetPhoto Studio v4.8.2 here .

JetPhoto Studio v4.7.2 update   by admin   Sep 19, 2010

Two convenient toolsare addedin version 4.7.2:

1) Copy filenames to the photo notes
Without JetPhoto Studio, the photo files are usually named as the photo titles. If you imported your titled files into JetPhoto albums, you may need a convenient way to transfer the photo titles from the file names to the photo notes shortly. Now you can just do that with an easy click, please choose menu item “Edit”->”Copy Filenames to Photo Notes…”

copy_filename.jpg The file name is ‘Birthday Cake.JPG’.

to_note.jpg After copying, now the photo note become ‘Birthday Cake’.

2) Rename files in batches with multiple modes
Choose menu item “Edit”->”Batch Rename Files…”, you can use the tool to change filenames in batches for the selected photos. The tool enables flexible renaming photo files as a series of uniform names with a same prefix (or/and a same suffix), and add an index number or a time string into each filename automatically. The program can also read the EXIF photo capture time tags and write them into the filenames. In this way, you can always easily sort your photo files by events or categories in any environment even without JetPhoto Studio.

rename-numbers.jpg rename files by appending index numbers

rename_time1.jpg rename files by appending photo capture time

rename_time2.jpg rename files with a prefix-time-suffix combination, example, you can name photo files as Event + Time + Location

Now you can download versions:

JetPhoto Studio 4.7   by admin   Dec 10, 2009

What’s new in version 4.7?


Camera RAW files storage

The JetPhoto Studio v4.7 allows store camera raw files in album packages. The raw files can be Nikon NEF, Canon CR2 and more others. Users can select to copy or move external raw files into JetPhoto albums, and JetPhoto will always automatically create a JPEG copy for each imported raw file.


When browsing photos in JetPhoto albums, right-click (or control-click) a thumbnail, you can find two items in the context menu to reveal either the JPEG file or the RAW file for each photo.


Now, it’s possible to geotag raw files in JetPhoto Studio v4.7. After locating photos with GPS, you can continue to use EXIF Tools to write the GPS metadata (latitude, longitude, altertude) into either the photo RAW file or the JPEG copy.


Also important, a memory leak bug was fixed in this version. This bug caused failed importing raw files in batches.


Google Map Gallery - Select photos in a list

JetPhoto Studio v4.7 added a new optional feature in the Google Map gallery. A dropdown list can be shown in the map, and users can select items on the list to switch photos fast. Now there are three ways to navigate photos within Google Map gallery: clicking hot spots in the map, clicking thumbnails in the bottom bar and clicking a menu item in the list.

To edit list items is very easy, you can type them in photo notes directly. Normally, the list item only include two or three words, but sometimes the photo description is too long to show completely in the list. Therefore, the Google Map gallery will find the first line break in the photo description and only show the first line of the photo note as a list item (both a “return” and a <br> html tag can be accepted as a line break).



Enhanced Address Lookup (Reverse Geocoding)

The reverse geocoding is not only a “concept proof” in JetPhoto Studio v4.7. Address Lookup program is enhanced in this version. It became an easy-to-use feature to create photo descriptions and keywords automatically according to the locations where photos were taken.

You can show your photos in maps after locating them. However there is one more fun, use Address Lookup program that will connect Google Maps server and invoke the reverse geocoding services to convert the latitude/longitude data to a human-readable address. In a magic way, JetPhoto Studio will add photo notes and keywords automatically for your photos.


For example, I took a photo in Stanford University campus. The photo has been located at latitude N37.42718° and longitude W122.17033° in JetPhoto Studio. Then, Address Lookup program will work to add a photo note and three keywords for the photo automatically:

- Photo Note: Stanford Memorial Church, Stanford
- Keywords: Stanford, CA94305, USA


The new Address Lookup feature are available in both Windows version and Mac version of JetPhoto Studio v4.7 .


Export / Import Keywords

In JetPhoto Studio v4.7 for Mac, users can export keywords list to a text file, or restore the keywords list with importing a text file. The functionality brings an easy way to manage keywords presets. Now you can first prepare your favorite keywords presets in any text editor, and import them into your album anytime later.


Geotagging Assistant

We developed a Geotagging Assistant program and added it as a new feature in JetPhoto Studio v4.7 for Mac. Now users can geotag their photos step by step.The program will guide users to finish all steps with ease.



Download JetPhoto Studio v4.7 for Mac OS X or JetPhoto Studio v4.7 for Windows.

JetPhoto Mac application crashing while geotagging   by admin   Jul 3, 2009

In the recent weeks, we often get some feedback to report a problem of the JetPhoto Studio Mac application crashing while geotagging (locating photos with GPS tracks automatically). Now we have found this problem is caused due to a WebKit runtime error. The WebKit handles the google map view embedded in JetPhoto Studio.

Is your Safari version 4? Now we suggest you can still use a stable version 3 instead, or you need download a new JetPhoto Studio version 4.5.1 to fix this Safari 4 compatibility issue.

WebKit is the foundation of Safari, you updated your Safari, the WebKit will also be updated. The present version of JetPhoto Studio should work properly with Safari 3, but did find the application crashing with Safari 4.

If you now use Safari 4 on your Mac, please download a JetPhoto Studio version 4.5.1 .
