"Win8 Capture NX2 star ratings & permissions."


Qawra St Pauls Bay, MT
          

Help please its driving me up the wall,
I do not use Star Ratings in Capture NX2 (2.4.2)but one single TIFF somehow grew three stars. I could not remove them in Capture NX2
In ViewNX2 I found out why but do not have the PC knowledge to get to the end of the road.
View NX2 said that the Star Rating status could not be changed unless you -

"Change your access privileges using the files info/properties dialog of your operating system"

I right clicked the image and selected properties then 'Edit to change permissions'
I found permissions was set on 'System'
I changed the selection to 'Users' and ticked all the boxes.
This allowed me to remove the Stars from that image.
Where do I go now to change this setting globally as presumably its going to happen to every image on my PC if Star Ratings are used?
Conversely have I got it all wrong and missed something?

Windows 8 64 bit
Capture NX2/ViewNX2 latest versions.

Thanks for any advice

Expat,

I don't have Windows 8, but Windows 7, 64 bit.

If you go to the Capture folder in the programs folder and right click for properties.

Click the sharing tab and change permissions to everyone with full access.

Depending upon how your computer is set up, you may need admin rights to make the changes.

Hope this helps.

Fixed that one Bob but know realize problems are more extensive and probably since I changed to a Win 8 PC from Win 7.
Possibly not the correct place to discuss it if its a Windows problem but in case anyone can help.

I use only Capture NX2, Photo Mechanic & Win8 64 bit so which one is the problem I don't know but seems to be related to permissions which you pointed me at.

RAW file - NX2 ingested by PM, processed into TIFF / jpg after keywords etc added in PM at initial stage.
Problem - I cannot add further keywords or change an images title etc in any program (PM says error cannot change IPTC) after conversion has been made to TIFF or jpg.

In Windows 7 I could open a file in Windows photo viewer and change these properties there but now I cannot.
If I right click an image in Windows Photo Viewer the Security tag shows
under System there are five grey ticks
under Account Unknown- 5 grey ticks
under Administrators - 5 grey ticks
under Users - two grey ticks for Read & execute & Read, cannot add ticks to Full Control, Modify or Write.

If its not permissions maybe I had better ask advice at PM.

Expat,

I have not done this in a while, so someone more learned than myself may help correct anything I've missed or misstated.

Let's give it a try though.

Do you have admin privileges assign to you user account or are you a restricted user?

As a restricted user, you cannot access the permissions and it sounds like the applications are not shared; set to read only. The greyed out portions indicate you're restricted.

You can log on as the administrator and reset the permissions and giving everyone full control of the applications in question. I don't like running my user account with admin privileges, too much #### can get downloaded if you're not careful.

Hope this helps.

Give it a try and let me know.
