From IMatch to Photo Supreme

Make the Move

IMatch stores most of its data in the metadata and upon importing the files to Photo Supreme, most of such information will return in Photo Supreme. What IMatch does not write to the metadata is the IMatch Category Assignments. This page explains how to export Categories in IMatch and how to import those as Catalog Labels in Photo Supreme.

1. Export Categories In IMatch

  1a. Select the Categories that you'd like to export in IMatch

  1b. Drag the selected categories to the  Category Export module

  1c. In the export dialog, make sure that you select Include Child Categories as well as Include File Assignments

  1d. Specify the export file name; make sure that you use the default .imcsx file extension for your export file

  1d. Click OK to start the export

2. Import your image files to Photo Supreme

  2a. Click the upper left corner hamburger menu and select "Import Folder"

  2b. Select the root folder that keeps your image files as the Source

  2c. Click Start Import

  2d. This does the bulk file import. Please wait for this to complete.

3. Import your imcsx file

  3a. From the upper left corner hamburger menu, select Data -> IMport from IMatch

  3b. Select the export file that you created in step 1. It is the file with the imcsx file extension

Always try with a small test folder first to test the process. Once you're familiar with how this works you can do a full migration.
