Delete category assignments from several images

Postby MichaelP » Sun Jan 15, 2017 6:48 pm

Hallo!

How do I delete (all) assignments to database categories in XnView from several images at the same time?

Only after I had already assigned numerous pictures, I noticed that in the settings/metadata, I have to put a checkmark "Export categories to IPTC keywords", so that the tags are also readable in other programs. Now I have to re-assign the categories and search for an opportunity to "clean" them beforehand.

PS: Which is the sorage-place of the category-information? I think not the picture-file, but where?

Greetings from
Michael

Very simple if its clear that I must first show the pictures by the LEFT filter. Thanks.
Where is the storage-place for the picture-category? In the picture-file?
