I am loading photos into Revel and it is skipping all duplicate filenames even if they are taken on different dates. Do I have to unique file names for every photo? Seems a bit odd that duplicate filenames are passed over if the photos are taken on different dates.

I just tried to reproduce this problem, and I can't. Revel blocks duplicate files by checksum values, not simple file names. Still, to be sure, I tried this myself with two unique files with the same file name, and both imported correctly.

Would you be willing to share couple example files, so I can take a closer look? If so, I will message you offline.

Thanks,
Charlie

Charlie,

Thanks for the quick reply. I have a couple of examples of photos with the same filename taken on different dates with the latter being marked as a dupe. Just a bit of other information. The photos are taken with two different cameras that are the same make and model. Feel free to reach out to me directly and I can provide additional details and samples of the photos.

Regards,
ROB

Hi Revel Team,

I have found by chance that there are times that some of the duplicates that Revel thinks are duplicate are in fact note. they have the same file name however where taken on completely different dates. Anyway I can fix this on my computer before actually trying to upload the pictures again to the Carousel.

Your help is always appreciated.

Mitch
