Importing images with Autoplay on Windows
If Autoplay is enabled in Windows, JPhotoTagger can automatically be started and importing image files, when You put Your camera's card into a card reader, which is connected to Your PC. I tested that under Windows 7:
- If not installed, download and install Autoplay Repair
- Create a batch file in JPhotoTagger's program
C:\Program Files\JPhotoTagger\). You can use this (right click the link and choose "Save Target as...") and fit it to Your needs. It starts JPhotoTagger with the command line parameter
-importand the drive letter of the camera card as argument:
-import=%1where %1 will be automatically replaced by the drive letter.
- Start Autoplay Repair and select the tab

If You choose JPhotoTagger, it will start and display the import dialog, such as in the picture below.
