  • EXIF metadata support. Now you can: **Specify whether to preserve EXIF metadata in thumbnails. To do it you can use a group of properties UploadThumbnailNCopyExif (where N is a number of the thumbnail version). **Extract necessary EXIF details and upload them a separate fields. To do it you can use a property named ExtractEXIF.
  • Increased a quality of thumbnails (both the quality of the previews and thumbnails which are uploaded).
  • New fields are uploaded along with a file - creation and last modification date.
  • Lossless JPEG rotation is used when possible (when the image dimensions are divisible by 8).
  • An ability to upload a hash value for the uploaded file. SHA, MD5, and MD2 algorithms are supported. Use the HashAlgorithm property to enable this feature.
  • An ability to get an image from the clipboard and insert it into the upload list. It is convenient to upload screenshots using this feature.
  • Additional appearance customization properties are added:
  • An ability to disable to resize the tree view using the mouse.
  • A distance between thumbnails in the folder and upload pane.
  • Additional color settings.
  • The detailed list now allows sorting. Also, the detailed list now displays a size of the folders. Improved the algorithm of the upload time estimation.
  • Added an ability to determine a type of the files which are added to the upload list.
  • An ability to hide some standard buttons.
  • An evaluation version now has a time limitation.
  • Added the event named BeforeUpload. It is convenient to verify input data and cancel upload if it is incorrect.
  • Added the method named AddField which enables you to add extra fields for the upload without the .
  • Fixed the problem with the Cancel button in the description editor.
  • Fixed the problem with uploading form elements along with the uploaded images.
  • Fixed the problem when the server returned the HTTP code 3xx (redirect).
  • Other minor bugs are fixed.
You can download CAB file here. Version with updated samples and docs will be available on the next week.

Could someone provide the names of the new creation and last modification date fields that are uploaded along with a file with this latest 3.5 version?

Here they are: SourceFileCreatedDateTime_N Contains a date of the source file creation. Date is specified in EXIF-style format: YYYY:MM:DD hh:mm:ss. E.g. 28th of March, 2:40PM would be looking in the following way: 2005:03:28 14:40:00. SourceFileLastModifiedDateTime_N Contains a date of the source file last modification. Date is specified in EXIF-style format: YYYY:MM:DD hh:mm:ss. E.g. 28th of March, 2:40PM would be looking in the following way: 2005:03:28 14:40:00.

Upgrade from 3.0 to 3.5 is free? I purchased ImageUploader 3.0. Yes, it is free if you use not private label build. Just use license key of Image Uploader 3.0 for unlocking 3.5 version. Also Image Uploader 3.5 is backward compatible, so there is no need to update your code.

When testing the new OCX version (3,5,4,0), I'm getting values like "SourceFileLastModifiedDateTime_1=1601:01:01 00:00:00" and "SourceFileCreatedDateTime_1=1601:01:01 00:00:00" (where the file being uploaded has a "normal" date for the created and last mod). Is there something we're missing here w.r.t. these new parameters?

Has anybody tested the EXIF Metadata feature? I find that it is not doing anything with regards to preserving EXIF information with the uploaded thumbnails. I would appreciate a reply from all users who have experimented with this feature.

I have not tried the "UploadThumbnailNCopyExif" property, but the "ExtractEXIF" property works for me. For example, if I specify the following for the component's config: Then I get parameters like "ExifDateTimeOriginal_N", "ExifFlash_N", etc. corresponding to thumbnail #N.

Thanks for this info. Though it still is not solving my issue. Where did you get this info on the parameters? Is there some doc you have access to that I can get to on this feature? I mean where can I know all the parameters of Exif to extract and the syntax??

UploadThumbnail1CopyExif Property This property specifies whether the first thumbnail should contain EXIF metadata copied from the original image. [HTML]
Code:
<param name="UploadThumbnail1CopyExif" value="">
[JavaScript]
Code:
ImageUploaderID.UploadThumbnail1CopyExif = value;
[VB Script]
Code:
ImageUploaderID.UploadThumbnail1CopyExif = value
Property Value A boolean value (True or False). If True, the EXIF information is copied from the original source file. Otherwise only the image (without metatdata) is sent.

We got the info about the "ExtractEXIF" parameter from them directly, and the way they told us to use it is basically what I showed in a previous post, where the values for the "ExtractEXIF" parameter can be looked up from the field names in the EXIF spec.

For more details regarding interpretation of these values, refer the EXIF specification. Default value is an empty string (no EXIF data is extracted). Remarks To get the EXIF value at the server, you should extract POST variable which is named in the following way: XXX_N, where XXX is a string value specified in this property (EXIF field name), and N is a number of the file in the request. E.g. if this property value is "ExifDateTime;ExifOrientation;ExifModel", you should get the following POST variables: ExifDateTime_1, ExifDateTime_2, etc. ExifOrientation_1, ExifOrientation_2, etc. ExifModel_1, ExifModel_2, etc. If you prefer to extract EXIF fields at the server, you can get them from the source file, or specify to preserve EXIF fields in the thumbnails you are going to upload. To do it, use the properties named UploadThumbnai1CopyExif, UploadThumbnai2CopyExif, and UploadThumbnai3CopyExif.

Fedor: UploadThumbnail1CopyExif works! EXIF info in the thumbnail works. I made an error where I had a space at the end of the property as "UploadThumbnail1CopyExif " and that caused the problem. Sorry for the confusion.

Can anyone confirm the above is currently an issue with the uploader? We have some new customers we are going to do work for, and I want to be able to give them options as to whether to license the Image Uploader 3.5 or else some other one (where the other one does have support for getting the file's last modified date -- which is important for video files since there is no easy meta data within video that we can get a logical date to associate the asset with [unlike photos with EXIF data]).

Many people are not sure about the functional completeness and the behaviour of the latest version of ImageUploader. It would be nice if a demo version of the latest is installed which can provide a way to preview the features to exhibit all the features. It will provide a benchmark for us to compare our installs as well.

Online demo will be available when official final version will be available. As for completeness and the behaviour we have posted ActiveX CAB only in order everyone could test it.
