New user here - sorry!!
I'm using a Canon WFT4 to send images to a hot folder on my macbook. It works great.
Photokey4PRO is set to look at the hot folder and process the composite and export it.

The problem seems to be that photkey4pro starts processing the images before they're fully saved into the hot folder, and so the photos don't work.

Any ideas please?

Many thanks

I've come up with a solution.

Canon supply a piece of software which relocated your uploaded photos for you (and renames them if you like). I guess it doesn't matter why it works....but it does!!!

If the photos I've just tested weren't of my wife in her pyjamas I'd happily upload the results for you!!!
