  1. I can not get the mapollage to open after I have downloaded the file, and I have do have the most up to date Java.

    1. It’s hard to say with this limited information.
      What operating system are you using?
      Have you associated jar files with Java Run Time?
      Can you unzip the downloaded file?
      Have you tried downloading it again?
      Can you run FileByDate also found on this site?

      If you don’t mind using the command line you could try something like
      java -jar /path/to/downloaded_and_unziped_jar/mapollage-1.0.9.jar

  2. When I am using your software the image heading is being ignored. how can I get this to properly place the image

    1. Not every image contains that information but when it does, it only shows up in the description, if ‘Bearing’ is activated.

      How would you like direction/bearing affect the placement of the image? Rotating them would render all south bound upside down, and I think we should avoid that. 🙂

    1. According to the documentation 🙂

      The source tab lets you select the image directory to process, a (glob) pattern to match each file and exclude strings separated by :: (double colon). When an exclude element is found in the image path, that file will be excluded.

      You can choose if you want to process subdirectories, follow links and include photos without a coordinate.

      Before you can do that, be sure to create a profile first.

      Hope it helps, Good luck!
