I have read the documentation on the many similar blog posts on this topic.
I am using Windows 10 on a laptop computer and on a desktop computer. I am using Tropy 1.1.1 on my laptop and Tropy 1.2 Beta 0 on my desktop.
I initially imported approx 2500 document photos on my laptop and cataloged them using the metadata fields in Tropy. I saved the photos and the Tropy project file on a USB drive. Everything works fine on my laptop.
I have now downloaded Tropy software on my office desktop computer. I still have the project file and the photos on the the USB drive which I have inserted on the desktop computer. Tropy on my desktop finds the project and metadata but can’t find the photographs (I have not changed any paths). I have been able to link individual photos successfully using the “Consolidate Photo” function for a single photo but it would be incredibly tedious do that for 2500 photos. The “Consolidate Photo Library” function under the file tab runs through the 2500 photos but fails to link them to the thumbnails in the project view or the individual photo in the item view.
Is there any way to overcome this problem? I would like to do this ideally by keeping the Tropy project file and the photos on my USB drive but, if that is not possible, I can transfer the project file and photos to my desktop computer.
I have not changed any file paths. Please advise how I can make Tropy work on my desktop.
