Terian Image Capture Pro v2.60 in Testing

Similar to the ID Creator post previously, this is just a quick note to say I’ve just compiled Terian Image Capture Pro v2.60, and will be putting it through testing for the next couple of days and hopefully with a public release early next week.

The changes in this release are:

  • Cross-hair support
  • Default Folder Changes (similar to the default folder changes made to Terian ID Creator)

Cross-hair support:

Cross-hair support has been something that I have wanted to implement for quite some time, as I have found with our clients capturing large numbers of images the framing of images can vary quite a bit.

Two basic cross-hairs are included, as well as an Ellipse cross-hair that will help assist lining up a subjects face to provide a better quality ID photo.

A screen shot displaying the Ellipse cross-hair is included below…

The top and bottom horizontal lines are based on a 5%, and 80% ratio as recommended in the guidelines provided by New Zealand passports.  The ellipse is based on 70% face width for 4:3 (Height/Width, i.e. portrait) aspect ratio.

Best use when using the cross-hairs is to ensure the centre line runs down the middle of the subjects nose and mouth.

Default Folder Changes:

I will not go into detail regarding the default folder changes, as they are basically the same as the Default Folder Changes made in Terian ID Creator.  The “Public Documents” folder will be used for data, and “My Documents” folder will be used for log files.

Testing:

Similarly to the ID Creator testing, if everything progresses well and no major hurdles are encountered, as stated above I hope to release to the website early next week.

Terian ID Creator v1.10 Released

As promised last week, I’ve completed testing of v1.10 of Terian ID Creator, and have publicly released it.   You can download it from the official website here

Testing uncovered a couple minor bugs that have been resolved.  Also the installation guide has been updated to take into account the changes to the default installation paths and configuration forms.

Terian ID Creator v1.10 in Testing

Just a quick note as i’ve just compiled Terian ID Creator v1.10, and will be putting it through testing for the next couple of days hopefully with a public release early next week.

The main changes in this release are:

  • Default Folder Changes
  • Additional Operator Rights
  • Updated Report Engine Option

Default Folder Changes:

The Public Documents folder will now be the default location for data files.  So the folder structure will now end up being like this…

  • <Public Documents>Sjones LimitedTerianTerian_IDCDataCapture
  • <Public Documents>Sjones LimitedTerianTerian_IDCDataExports
  • <Public Documents>Sjones LimitedTerianTerian_IDCDataForms
  • <Public Documents>Sjones LimitedTerianTerian_IDCDataImports
  • <Public Documents>Sjones LimitedTerianTerian_IDCDataPhotos

The My Documents folder will be the default location for log files.

These folder structure changes will be standardised across all Terian Applications (i.e. Image Capture Pro, LoadData Utility), and will be more user friendly when dealing with multiple applications in the Terian family.

The folder changes also make administration easier when multiple Windows user accounts are used.

Note: These are only the default values, however they can be changed at any stage.

Additional Operator Rights:

The operator configuration provides additional options for restricting functionality and access to different parts of the system.

Oprator Data Rights

These rights will allow for more granular control of operator access to the system features.

Updated Report Engine Option:

The Report Engine has been updated with the ability to include Client Contact Address details within reports.

As an example of how this feature will improve your workflow, you can now print a report and have it folded appropriately to insert into a windowed envelope without the need to generate a separate envelope address label.

A simple enhancement, but one that was requested by our users.

Additional Bug Fixes:

As always with each new release there are additional bug fixes.

Testing:

If testing progresses well and no major hurdles are encountered, as stated above I hope to release to the website early next week.
