HI Helmut,

yes your're right, sorry for that it seems i missed some paragraphs.

Sorry for your effort.

This would mean only one place to...

Same for me. I tried a lot of applications to sort, manage and find pistures. But nearly all does this in its own format and style. So i'm searching since a long time for an application which realy supports IPTC in a way you can use this. This is my major topic on a wish list.
