Re: 0.61: File listing: Suggestions and problem with slash

Helmut, thanks for your comments and for your assistance. I was not aware that John's original post is located in the "Suggestions" forum for XnView Classic...

0.61: File listing: Suggestions and problem with slash

I tested this feature using XnViewMP v0.61 with Windows XP. I started with 5 image files Img01.jpg ... Img05.jpg in the folder "D:/Base/Sub1/Sub2/Sub3". The order of the images in subfolder Sub3 was rearranged by shifting Img05.jpg between Img02.jpg and Img03.jpg in XnViewMP's browser pane (Custom o...

Re: 0.39 Win: Exif:DateTaken not formatted if date is uncert

Please note: it is the combination of Exif-DateTimeOriginal and Exif-ModifyDate which caused the reported problem in v0.48: Exif-DateTimeOriginal Exif-ModifyDate "EXIF:Date Taken [Y-m-d]" set set date string (correct in v0.48) not set not set empty string (correct in v0.48) not set set 1901-01-00 (n...

Re: 0.50 rename files using exif "Date taken" not working

I'm afraid this problem is related to the latest fix for http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=24993 in v0.50.

Re: v0.48 IPTC/XMP tagging is confuse

mahikeulbody, your summary is correct on the whole, but your conclusions with respect to XnViewMP need some clarifications: XnViewMP claims to support IPTC-Core but not IPTC-Extension (see http://www.iptc.org/cms/site/photometadatasupportlist.html?channel=CH0101#17 ). This means that the new propert...

Re: 0.39 Win: Exif:DateTaken not formatted if date is uncert

Thanks for fixing this issue, but unfortunately, this fix introduced another problem: If Exif-DateTimeOriginal is not set but Exif-ModifyDate is set, then "EXIF:Date Taken [Y-m-d]" shows "1901-01-00", which is obviously not correct; in this case, "EXIF:Date Taken" should show an empty string.

Sure. Please find attached a scanned picture which has the Exif-DateTimeOriginal set to 1998:00:00 00:00:00 using exiftool: Exif-DateTimeOriginal_1998-00-00.jpg The Exif-Spec ( http://www.exif.org/Exif2-2.pdf , pdf-page 36) states that unknown date and time values should be filled with blank.

Suggestion: add more IPTC tags in XnViewMP database

One of my favourite features in XnViewMP is the extended sqlite3-based category database. The IPTC keywords are added to this database by default if selected in the metadata settings tab. That's great and offers an efficient way to retrieve the pictures containing the related IPTC information. In or...

0.39 Win: Exif:DateTaken not formatted if date is uncertain

In 2010, XnViewMP v0.31 fixed a problem with "uncertain" Exif-DateTimeOriginal (cf. http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=20968 ) and accepts now Exif-DateTimeOriginal containing "00" for month and/or day if the month or day is not known for sure, for example for scanned pictures from the...

Re: Windows7 - XnViewMP 0.35 - Crash on startup

I have this problem too. It can be produced with the following settings: - "Filter by": Images; - "View as": Thumbnails or Thumbnails+Labels; - use a startup directory (either "last" or "specified" in the General settings) which contains besides the image files also some other file types like .txt, ...

v.0.26.1 Exif-DateTimeOriginal shown wrong in some cases

According to the Exif-specification ( http://www.exif.org/Exif2-2.pdf , pdf-page 36, paper-page 30), DateTimeOriginal represents "the date and time when the original image data was generated. ... When the date and time are unknown, all the character spaces except colons (':') may be filled with blan...

v.0.26.1: Suggestions for Options-tab in IPTC dialog

Updating IPTC tags for several images in a batch job may need to "clear" the input data prior to editing the tags to be updated (cf. http://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=20892 ). The "Multiple selection" settings in the "Options" tab control how the IPTC data are handled for several imag...
