howto search for IPTC tags

Postby chris- » Sun Aug 03, 2008 5:14 pm

Hi,

I just started with XnView for Linux (XnView-static-fc4.i386.rpm).
I do not see, where I can search for IPTC tags? Looked in all menues.

Any hints?
Thanks,
Chris

(For windows):
Ctrl-F
or
Tools - search
or
Context menu in Explorer

for starting the search-dialogue.

Hello,
With Wine and XnView windows v1.94.2:
In tools\search\ ... then only check:"include subfolders" and "IPTC" .....

(FYI: You can also try Digikam in linux because this is very easy to play with IPTC keywords or others tags on it in the "Caption\TAG" tab on the right and for the search function "Tags" tab on left )

I hope than XnView will have this kind of functions in a future version.
