Your computer should be fully updated from Microsoft Windows Update.  As with all application installations, it is recommended that you disable your antivirus and firewall software before you launch the installer for this application. This helps prevent interference from these security applications that could potentially corrupt the installation.  Make sure you are logged into a Windows account with full admin rights. If you are using an account with limited rights, the installation, activation and registration of this application will not work properly.  Read the Browser Compatibility section below along with the Common Problems and Helpful Hints sections at the end of this web page to ensure CCPro will fit your needs..

Content-Cataloger PRO adds new features which include 3 new layouts for oversized (huge) collections, exclusion of duplicate filenames, and automatic creation of thumbnails.  You won't be disappointed with this release, but if the original version suits your needs stick with it.

Content-Cataloger products allow you to create your very own personalized catalogs of your digital media library in seconds!  Organize all your content with a visual catalog that can open in almost any web browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera) and don't just settle for text-only searching again!  User customizable searching criteria, personalized titles and date stamping to keep your catalogs current.  You can see in the comparison image below how much easier it will be to manage most content collections regardless of type (music, movies, photos, 3D)...

Browser Compatibility

Content-Cataloger products are compatible with all popular web browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox, etc).  However, for those of us who have been around for awhile, we realize that not all web browsers are created equally.  That said, be sure to use the browser best suited for the requirements of the catalogs you wish to create.  For most people, Internet Explorer will suffice but in those cases of users creating catalogs of large collections of high-resolution digital images, we recommend using Chrome or Firefox.
We highly recommend a 500-5000 limit on matching catalog entries as a guide to help keep customers from building extremely large html web-pages that could not be used. It would seem that CCPro is a product that is way ahead of its time because it is capable of creating "huge" catalogs that are beyond the  limits and maximum capacities of the Web Browsers available at this time. None of them would be capable of displaying that extremely large collections of image data without freezing or failing. If you were to contact the makers of Chrome, Firefox and IE and ask them why their browsers cannot successfully display a single web-page containing 100k images, I'm sure they would all state that no browser is capable of that at this time.

Catalog Overview

When viewing your catalogs, here is an example of what you will see:
1 - HYPERLINK:  Click to view the original image in full size.
2 - THUMBNAIL: Small representation of the original image.
3 - HYPERLINK:  Click to Open Folder where original image is located.
4 - FILENAME:  Name of original image file in more readable form.

Organizing Your Media

To make the best use of CCpro, you do not necessarily need to reorganize all your media files (for most of us this would be an overwhelming and time-intensive task in itself).  However, there are times when you may choose to do that for your own reasons.  With CCpro, you can have sorted entries in your catalogs using one of several methods with the most popular being by Name and by Folder.  If needed, you can also sort your entries by their creation Date.

Below are some recommendations that will make using your new catalogs more enjoyable and make finding your media extremely easy and fast. 
Some of these procedures are more technical than others but none of them are required to catalog your media collections.

Location of Catalogs
Keep your catalogs in easy to remember places so they are always easy to find.
You do not have to recreate a catalog unless you have added items to or deleted items from a set in your collection or have changed the location of your collection.  Even though you should not store your collections/sets in the root of your storage device (ie C:\ D:\), you may save your catalogs there because most catalogs usually "link" to images in the sets for your collections.

Naming Catalogs
You should use whatever makes sense to you.
For the most part (and to simplify the creation process), you should use a filename for your catalog that is similar to, if not exactly the same, as the Title you use which will display your catalog when viewed.  All catalogs are automatically saved as HTML files with the ".html" suffix to  open in your web browser.
You can see in the example below how we used the terms "new" and "models" for our catalog name and title because it was the most relative phrase to our search directory.

Underscore Replacement
Supports Legacy File Naming Conventions.
When creating the header portion of an entry for your own catalogs, CCpro automatically replaces any underscore "_" characters with the space " " character.  This is an important feature to add readability to your catalogs while maintaining support for file naming restrictions that do not allow use of space character.

Customized Output
You can customize what to include/exclude from your new catalogs in the Arrangement panel.

Custom Sorting
Most people will sort by folder.
You can have sorted entries in your catalogs using one of several methods with the most popular being by Folder and by Name.  If needed, you can also sort your entries by their creation Date.

Hyperlinks & Filenames
Hyperlinks and Filenames are included by default.
Once a catalog is created, it can be used to instantly view or locate an entry image simply by clicking the appropriate hyperlink.  If the catalog you create is the basis for a printed copy or electronic version (ie PDF or eBook), then you can choose not to include hyperlinks to further compress the size of the catalog.  If a strictly "visual" catalog is your goal, then you can choose not to include filenames.

Many collectors of downloadable media and electronic content have duplicate entries of the same image file spread across their collection.  This is usually the result of bundles and sets of content where you maintain a "group" image such as a coverpage or collage in a fashion that ensures each folder/directory containing important files from that bundle/set also contain the group image.  You can choose to eliminate duplicate filenames, but this will have a significant impact on the processing time of your content collection as each and every file found will need to be analyzed.  The only entry included for each set of duplicates will be the first found during entry searches.

User Specific Filtering
Use a naming convention for the most important image
in a set of media that you would like to represent that set.
This tip applies more to 3D Content and similar collections where the user may have more than one image in the set but there is one "main" image that represents the set.  For Photo, Music and Movie collections you will most likely "Disable" filtering as most of these sets only contain one main image (ie album cover or DVD jacket) or no main image at all (show me all my digital photos).
By specifying one image to represent a set in your collection, you can use the "Prefix" or "Contains" filters to create a catalog of those images only.  This will make your catalogs easier to view and find specific items you are searching for.
The author's personal preference is to prefix the main images in his collections with "Catalog---" (see CCpro In Action section).

Supported Image Filetypes
When creating a new catalog, CCpro will search for and find images of the following types:

Image Pointers vs. Thumbnails
Because the catalogs you create are essentially "pointing" to the images in your collection of media, the browser you use to open the catalogs has to read each and every entries image to create it's thumbnail.  We recommend that if the images in your collection are rather large in pixels, that you do one of the following:

     1. Permanently create smaller images in your collection to use with Filtered searches.
     2. Use the Auto-Create Thumbs feature to automatically create thumbs for your catalog.

Progress Status Bar
The progress bar gives a visual representation of the progress of CCpro in creating your new catalogs.  Just above the progress bar you will see the current count of the number of images that have matched your search and filter criteria to be included.  It will display Done and the total number found upon completion.

CCpro can handle quite large media collections, however the speed with which a catalog is completed and the ability to successfully process a collection are dependent on your system resources (ie CPU, Memory, Storage).

If you get a "Not Responding" message from Windows, it is most likely because you search criteria you specified is processing a very large number of files.  In most cases, simply ignore this message until CCpro has completed its processing.

Thumbnail Sizes and Styles
You have 7 choices of thumbnail styles for your catalogs:
Tiny/Small/Big Square, Mini-Portrait / Portrait, and Mini-Landscape / Landscape.
Tiny Square is great for making very large collections into a compact catalog without filenames.

Small Square is a general purpose and useful for almost anything.

Big square is great for music album covers or other squared images.

Mini-Port has same uses as Portrait but with smaller thumbnails.

Portrait is great for downloaded software, 3D content and even digital photos.

Mini-Land has same uses as Landscape but with smaller thumbnails.

Landscape is great for digital photos.

The Content Cataloger applications are strongly coded executables and will attempt to read all folders/directories in the selected path.  Because of this, all users should not use the root of any drive (ie C:\ or D:\) as their Search Directory as it may cause a system error like the one shown below.

To avoid this error, which should not present a problem for most users, is to simply keep all your media in designated folders and/or directories of your choosing on your storage devices.


As you can see in this set of files for poseable book in our New Models collection, there are 25 images.  If you look closely, you will notice that 7 of the images begin with the words “Catalog---“.

You could simply use Windows Explorer to view the contents of the folder as thumbnails, however as in this example it is only good if you know where you have placed the folder containing poseable book.

And this is just one of 68 new model sets that need sorted and organized when time permits.  So how are we going to remember all the stuff that I have downloaded?  Just take a look at all the folders and you can just imagine the images contained therein.

We ran CCpro to search our New Models directory and save the catalog to New_Models.html giving our catalog an appropriate title and using the prefix “Catalog---“ because those are the only images we wish to include in our new catalog.

Check out how great our new catalog looks.

Each entry in your catalogs will have a View Image and Open Folder link which allow you to view the image at full-size and go directly to the folder that is holding your media set.

No, however to receive your Activation Key and Registration Codes you will need a valid email address.

Helpful Hints
1. Run CCPro as adminstrator (right-click on .exe and select "Run as adminstrator" from drop down list).
2. Be sure your folder and sub-folder structures do not exceed the maximum filepath names for your version of Windows. Many people try to write lengthy folders name for descriptive purposes.  If you use too many long filenames for folders and sub-folders, it can affect both Windows and CCPro.
3. Do not try to build just one catalog with "ALL" images in your collection; especially if it contains more images than practical for any browser to display.
4. Read the section "User Specific Filtering" to create and use prefixing for your collections; getting to where prefixes will work best can be time intensive with large collections.  You can find an example of this prefixing in the "Content-Cataloger Products In Action" section.
5. If you download all the "promo" images for content, filter your catalog by the primary image for the collection you downloaded (for example, DAZ3D sets usually have an image containing "main").
6. Most, if not all, collections of media are already categorized or broken down by folders/directories; instead of creating one massive catalog, create catalogs for each of these categories.
