Shuttersnitch backup is uploading dual pics

Postby rallysnapper » Mon Feb 18, 2013 11:13 pm

Hello,

I am still getting very strange behaviour from shuttersnitch backup. When I take one image the shuttersnitch backup loads two images of the same subject and further if I take two pics of the same subject the backup software will load four pics of the same subject into lightroom 4, It never seems to just backup the correct amount of pictures taken. I have tried every combination but this current version of shuttersnitch backup does not want to play fair. Please has anybody got any ideas as everything else in the Shuttersnitch armoury works brilliantly...... its only the backups that is causing grief...

Are you shooting in RAW+JPG or saving the photos into two collections?

I'm guessing you're using the "After receiving file" setting in SSB - does it copy or move the new files?

Hi MadDawgJ and the Brew,

Many thanks for your replays, MadDawgJ, no I'm just backing up Jpegs no Raw files. The Brew,inside the settings in SSB I have tried the "copy" and then tried the "move" relating to the backing up with no joy still got duel images when "auto importing" into LR 4, then I have set up in SSB "after receiving files to do nothing" and still getting duel imports. To be fair I think its not SSB that causing the fault I think its lightroom 4 "auto imports" section and how you have to set the LR4 auto import up. I have tried SSB via Adobe CS5 master suite and auto imported my images vis CS5 bridge and somehow its works absolutely brilliant.No dual images via CS5 Bridge. Anyhow would still like your input into the LR 4 auto import question if possible..

many many thanks

Rallysnapper.

1. Make sure that the auto-import folder is not inside the ShutterSnitch backups folder.
2. Set SSB up to copy to that folder.
3. Double check that the Lightroom auto import folder is the same as one in step 1.

ShutterSnitch Backup is what it says on the tin: a backup app, so it'll re-download any changed file, even if it's just a metadata change for example (such as a rating). In that case, Lightroom would re-import the file.
