    • Recalculate AI scores?

      Is there any way to recalculate AI scores? If the initial scores are calculated on the basis of thumbnails, and thumbnails change when images are edited, presumably these initial calculations are no longer valid for the updated thumbnails.

    • If you experience missing images when ingesting (especially when dealing with folders), PLEASE READ

      We identified a possible issue with a feature that was recently introduced and let you ignore images that are too small. In some situations (not clear what these are), images are wrongly ignored, despite the fact that their dimensions exceed the threshold.
