Folder import will become available TODAY. In the next few hours.
So how do we do this? Hook an Ethernet cable up to our router or computer or hook the HD up to the computer and drag them onto it? Is there an "app" that we put on our computer? Please let me know, I know your other work with the face recognition was awesome! :-)
Eject your drive from the App, using Settings/USB drives and selecting drive. Connect drive to your Mac / PC. Copy a folder of photos. Reconnect drive back to Monument. Select drive under Settings/USB drives, touch drive, select "Add existing folder". Cheers.
I know I am a Luddite. I copied like 20 folders with about 65,000 photos (or some insane number). When I got to the settings where I add an existing folder I could only select 1. After it "loaded" I wanted to select another but the message said "Forget" or "Rescan"??? If I say "Forget" do I loose all the pictures I just loaded from that folder? I don't want to rescan it as I just got finished. Help! How do I load the other folders and their pictures.
Thanks for all your help.
@Brian; Put all of the 20 folders into a single folder. Import that folder. You may want to 'forget' the already imported folder, since folder hierarchy will change.
> Do I need to "Un-Nest" all those folders and just have one massive folder with all the photos? If so that will be a PITA but doable.
No need to un-nest. Should be fine as is.
> Does the software detect like "Snow", "Beach", "Mountains", etc or do I need to make new Albums and place the photos in there myself?
We have some limited tags. More coming.
> "Adding Contents...(0 files)". It has been at "0 files" for 2 days now.
This is odd. We need diagnostic data submission. Converting this into a ticket. Please submit diagnostic data to us. Thanks.
I added 45,000 photos when the new app was released a week ago. It has 7,000 left to analyse. Patience is the key :)
One feature I would like to see added in future would be for Monument to retain the folder structure of the imported photos. My 45k photos are (like most people) separated into about 250 individual folders named "San Francisco", "My 30th Birthday" etc. It would be great if in the albums tab of the app, these folders were still there. I'm never going to go through 45k photos and make new albums for Monument in the app...

This has been an internal debate here as well. At the present time, we are retaining the folder structure imported from the USD drive. Your suggestion of using the folder names as albums, for example, is intriguing. We will run that by the engineering.
