Validates image files and checks for file corruption.

Validates image files and checks for file corruption.

The Validator plugin allows you to validate images and check for file corruption or “bit rot”. It works by computing a hash for each file and then comparing it to a previously stored value to see if your file has changed unexpectedly.

SUPPORT INFORMATION

See http://bayimages.net/blog/lightroom/validator/ for complete documentation on Validator.

In general, you will want to run this plug-in with the option “Automatically write changes into XMP” set to off in Catalog settings. See documentation for more details.
