if created whithin JPhotoTagger, the paths have not to be edited, they
should point to the correct locations. You can open the batch file with
an editor, e.g. notepad.exe, and verify that. Only if the installation
location of one of that programs will change in future, the paths have
to match the new locations: Either repeat the steps as described obove
within JPhotoTagger or change the paths whithin the batch file opend by
an editor, e.g. notepad.exe.
> How are executable privileges added into a file?
That is not necessary under Windows but under Unix systems and only if
you create the file by yourself, the file created by JPhotoTagger should
have set the executable flag.

1. If not done, register the file type:
Window > User Defined File Types: New
Check "User defined script creates thumbnails"
2. Select a folder with files of that type
3. In the thumbnail window select a file of that type
4. Open the context menu with right click
5. Choose "Refresh > Thumbnail"
If an error occurs, in the bottom of the program window an error icon
appears. After a click onto that, the error logfile will be displayed. A
developer can help checking these 2 files located in your home directory
- Windows 7 usually "C:\Users\you", Unix systems: "/home/you", folder
Hint: To test a script, you can execute it on the command line, under
Windows "Start > cmd.exe". Whithin the command window (DOS Box), the
quotes '"' are necessary because the paths may contain spaces:
"<path_to_script>" "<path_to_an_image>" 150 > thumbnail.jpg
That should create a thumbnail with a maximum length of 150 pixels. The
benefit of a command window is, that you can see the complete output-
The JPhotoTagger logfile contains the error messages only if the
programs are logging it onto standard error. If you don't redirect the
output to a file ("> filename")
"<path_to_script>" "<path_to_an_image>" 150
some additional output maybe seen; if the script creates a thumbnail,
the command window contains "crappy" ("binary") characters.
