    As I prepare for a multi panoramic job tomorrow, I am trying to find a way to be able to keep a log of which images belong to which part of the project.

    Example: I shoot 12 panoramas on teh same location at different altitiudes. Later those images will pretty much look quite similar.

    Where is the image log displayed so that I can make a note during the project that, for example, image 1-40 belongs to shoot A, 41-80 shoot B, 81 - 120 shoot C etc etc...

    When I get home with 1000 images, its going to be confusing to try and organise them correctly.

    Any tips?

    Thanks

    Pen and paper is the easiest way I find.

    I was referring to the actual image numbers. Where can these be viewed without landing and removing the SD card?

    So If my first flight is at 100m and then 70m I dont really want to land, download the images, write the DJI0001.jog - DJI0040.jpg etc, take off and go back to teh second location.

    I need to be able to know from the app what the current image number is.

    Hope I am making myself clear!

    There is no way to do that from the ground unfortunately.
    You can either:
    Set your file numbering in the app to 'Reset' which will mean each time you start taking pictures it will start from 0000.DNG/jpg or if you have it set on 'Continuous' you just need to take a note of the last photo you downloaded from the card.
    Then it will be sequential after that.
    You can actually make up a spreadsheet and pre number the cells. Then fill it in as you go on the ground.
    Unfortunately within the Go App it's a manual process (but manageable)

    Another way I have used in past was if I was taking pics and need to mark one for later, I'd take a quick (2-3sec) video after it, as a marker, or vice versa for video markers take a pic between for separators. Then later go through files and pull as required.

    I use Adobe Lightroom where you can find the option "map "at the top.From there you will be shown a Google map where you can see where and when a photo is taken.
    Another idea is make 10 photo's and make another 10 photos so you know that every ten photo's is coming from a certain point.
    Good luck

    Keep it small and simple: Write down the time when a new Session begins...

    The easiest thing for me, is to take one shot totally over exposed between sets. That'll separate them for you
