    Project mention: Cleaning up my 200GB iCloud with some JavaScript | | 2024-01-05

    > Any method that I've found to clean them up (exporting the originals, deleting them from the library, and then re-importing the JPEGs only seems easiest) will lose all of the years of metadata that I've built up in the library.

    The open source tool osxphotos ( can help with this. You can export the JPEG images while preserving metadata using the thrid-party exiftool utility:

    `osxphotos export /path/to/export --has-raw --skip-raw --exiftool`

    This exports all images that have a raw pair but skips the raw component then uses exiftool ( to write the metadata (keywords, etc.) to the exported JPEG files. You can then re-import these into photos either by dragging them or by running `osxphotos import /path/to/export/*`

    Both the export and import commands have many other options for controlling export directory, etc. `osxphotos help export` or `osxphotos docs` to open docs in browser. (Disclaimer: I'm the author of osxphotos)

    Project mention: My first week with my SV04 | /r/Sovol | 2023-05-07

    If it were not for the defective mounting of the E2 stepper motor and the out of square of the gantry I would keep this solidly built SV04. I would replace the magnetic printing surface immediately and after the year warranty replace the mother board with the appropriate Big Tree Tech 8 channel board available and configure standard Marlin IDEX firmware or even go Klipper for the fundamentals of the printer appear that they can provide Klipper speeds. However even though I could see the Solvol support team means well and they reply to my emails reasonably quickly, they do not appear to have the English language skills necessary to understand the gantry and stepper motor mounting problem. That, and they have a primitive email support infrastructure that even caused one Sovol team member to believe that I was asking for support for a SV06 not a SV04. Sovol support would be vastly improved if they simply install a Mozilla Bugzilla.
