how to sync a database incl. images

Postby Joerg » Tue Apr 30, 2013 10:49 am

Hi,

I have build a database storing locations I think they are worth to come back and take photos with my DSLR. Along with the location I store an image made with the iPhone. Now I like to sync this database to the desktop/to dropbox/or to my iPad including the images. How can this be done?

Cheers and many thanks in advance!

Hello,

Thanks for posting. When using HanDBase Plus on your computer, the images on the iPhone will be copied to your computer.

You can purchase a copy of HanDBase Plus for iOS at the following link:

http://www.ddhsoftware.com/store.html?CatID=24&UID=

This addon includes a copy of HanDBase Desktop and the wifi based sync conduit. The information below details how to set up syncing:

1.  Connect the handheld to your local wifi network
2.  Open HanDBase on the handheld
3.  While on the database selection screen, tap the icon in the lower right corner
4.  Note that the screen is showing a URL in the format of http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8080
5.  Open HanDBase Desktop
6.  Select the Configure menu (Devices menu in Mac version)
7.  Select the iPhone Users option
8.  Select the option to set up a new partnership / user and follow the on screen steps.  

The partnership and initial sync will have been completed.  For subsequent syncs, repeat steps 1-7 and then select the synchronize option.

Hello Brian,

I already owe the Mac OSX App HanDBasePlusiPhone.dmg is the version you refer to different?

How can I sync the images along with the syncronisation?

Cheers

Hi there,

Thanks for your post. The file you have is the one Brian's referring to! It already should be syncing (actually backing up) your images- they go in the /Users/Username/Documents/HanDBase/Images folder.

Hi Dave,

thank you I will search for the images locally.

Is there a way to add images directly to the HandBase on my iOS device or do I have to use the iOS photo library?

Cheers and many thanks!

Hi there,

You can add them via the Desktop Connect tool- when you access via your desktop web browser, you can upload files via a side bar item and you can upload (an image at a time) this way.

Hoping to add a batch upload option in the future!
