Importing Images - Processing Time
YSI 2 now uses it's own engine to import images and no longer requires Photoshop. However, depending on your computer's specifications and the size of your image files, you may experience some delay. We recommend to import a maximum of 100 images at a time to allow your computer's memory to refresh.

Lightroom - JPG Conversion
If you are using Lightroom to convert your images to JPG files, please ensure to check the Minimize Embedded Metadata option within Lightroom's export dialog screen. Failing to do so may interrupt YSI 2's import process.

Transferring YSI 1 Custom Templates into YSI 2
Due to the coding differences between both applications, the .ist template files (i.e. My Templates Folder) cannot be re-imported into YSI 2.
Until we introduce this feature into YSI 2, we recommend to process your custom templates within YSI 1 as finished layouts and batch process as PSD files. Then open YSI 2 and go to the Template Groups page. Select the PSD import facility to convert them as YSI 2 custom templates.
