Diving Log 6.0.22 released

I’m happy to announce a huge update to photos in Diving Log. Because this is not only about photos anymore, the section in the logbook window is now named “Media”. You can now add any file type and even online photos and YouTube videos directly to your dives. Here are the new features in this update:

  • Relative photo path names option
  • Add online photos and YouTube videos to dives
  • Add videos and other file types to dives
  • Photo Slideshow
  • Photos drag & drop support
  • Photos logbook context menu
  • .heic image format support
  • Use correct image rotation based on Exif data
  • Show photos in profile
  • Photo Manager improvements
  • Rotation buttons in Image Viewer
  • iCloud Sync in Web menu
  • Downloader: Suunto EON Steel Black, Sherwood Amphos 2.0, Sporasub SP2

I’ve linked the first two items to a more detailed description page. In a nutshell, you now have the choice of absolute (default) or relative path names for any file you link in your logbook. In addition, you can add image and YouTube URL’s to your dives. And you can add any file type from your PC, e.g. videos, Word or PDF documents. And there is a new photo slideshow function:

You can drag and drop files from Explorer or the web browser to the thumbnail list in the logbook window and to the image field in the details windows (e.g. dive sites, etc). There is a new context menu in the thumbnail list and the .heic image format used by iPhones is now supported by Diving Log.

Photos with rotation information in the Exif data are now displayed in the correct orientation. And if your underwater camera date/time setting is synchronized with the date/time from the dive computer, the photos and videos are shown in the dive profile, so you can see exactly where you’ve captured them:

Photo Manager got some great improvements as well: it will now show you all images from all sections in your logbook file. And you can switch between absolute and relative path names for all selected images with one click:

The integrated image viewer in Diving Log got rotation buttons (just for display, the file won’t be rotated or modified in any way). In the “Web” toolbar menu in the main window you will find a new entry for iCloud synchronization. And the downloader supports now a few more dive computers as well: thanks to Jef Driesen from libdivecomputer.
