We are looking into this.

We have a few lingering carbuncles from the conversion to D2D, and they include some issues with ImageRotate, ImageCrop and EXIF. We hope to have them all addressed shortly. They are all interrelated a bit, so we don't want to do a beta until we are sure that all are solved.
So, I think I had right, when I said that mochibear's issues are caused by the same problem? Weird is that I think the issue was introduced by version 3273 (January 3rd), but he reported this earlier, on December 28th.
Anyway, hoping you'll find a good solution, I thank to the whole team for your work with this wonderful piece of software. :great:

We think this has been fixed for the next beta (r3277). Thanks for reporting.

Yes, both issues (related to ImageRotate and ImageCrop) has been.
Thanks for this fix.
It has freed me from a lot of work, to rewrite some skins which previously worked, but then, with r3273, they didn't any more. Now they are again working well.

mochibear, please install the newest version of Rainmeter (r3277), available now on the site and test your skin. Does it work well now? I hope it does.

When UseExifOrientation set to 1, yes I believe the issue is fixed. I am continuing testing now. Thank you all for everything. I use this photoframe at work to see my friends, family and pets and to help me unwind, so this is very very much appreciated.


Would this be the right place to ask a skin-related question (perhaps to balala?)

Currently the code is:

Code: Select all

[MeterShowPicture]
Meter=Image
MeasureName=MeasureMyPictures
UseExifOrientation=1
X=40
Y=5
W=1024
H=768
PreserveAspectRatio=1
LeftMouseUpAction=[!Refresh]

On left mouse double click, I would like to open an explorer menu window with the picture highlighted. Is that at all possible?

Yeah, it is. Just add the following Measure to your code:

Code: Select all

[MeasureRun]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=RunCommand
Parameter=explorer /select,[MeasureMyPictures]
State=Hide
DynamicVariables=1
Then use the following LeftMouseDoubleClickAction on the [MeterShowPicture] meter: LeftMouseDoubleClickAction=[!CommandMeasure "MeasureRun" "Run"].

Hi balala,

I did everything you said, and a double click does open a explorer window but just to the main "my pc" folder (displaying C, D, E drives etc)


Here's the code I used:

Code: Select all

[Rainmeter]
Update=1000
AccurateText=1
DynamicWindowSize=1

[MeasureMyPictures]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=QuotePlugin
PathName=D:/Test
Subfolders=1
FileFilter=*.jpg;*.jpeg
UpdateDivider=10

[MeterBackground]
Meter=Image
ImageName=D:\Applications\Rainmeter\Skins\Pictures (with thin Frame)\\Background.png
W=1100
H=800
GreyScale=0

[MeterShowPicture]
Meter=Image
MeasureName=MeasureMyPictures
UseExifOrientation=1
X=40
Y=5
W=1024
H=768
PreserveAspectRatio=1
LeftMouseUpAction=[!Refresh]
LeftMouseDoubleClickAction=[!CommandMeasure "MeasureRun" "Run"]

[MeasureRun]
Measure=Plugin
Plugin=RunCommand
Parameter=explorer /select,[MeasureMyPictures]
State=Hide
DynamicVariables=1

Your code works perfectly for me and it does what it should: when double clicking the image, explorer opens and the current image is highlighted.
Try eventually to run a such command in command line, to see how does it work there. Open a command line and enter this: explorer /select,-COMPLET PATH OF AN IMAGE-. Does the explorer open, with the image highlighted?
What Windows version are you using?
