IPTC and German Umlaute

Seem to similar to the psoting from XnViewMP from 2013: https://newsgroup.xnview.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=28057&p=111331&hilit=iptc+umlaut#p111331 ----------------- When I add a IPTC value (e.g. string "Parkplätze") to key 120 (Description) with nconvert.exe, then the "umlaut" is displayed as "?".

Re: Basic understanding of "JPEG Quality"?

Hi @cday and @XnTriq after some days of missing emails I just saw the progress of the discussion here and I'm sure that many users will benefit from this high level contributions.

Yes, of course I'm following the thread.

I'm always hoping for a "yes/no" answer and I'm always afraid when XnTriq starts his IKM (incredible knowledge machine).

Do I understand it right: "The quality level is always relative to the current setting" When I save a JPG file with "quality 85%" three times, it results in a final quality of "0.85*0.85*0.85 = 61%". When I save a JPG file with "quality 100%", it results in an unmodified quality. Right? Best wishes ...

Get "EXIF:DateTaken" with NConvert

I try to use NConvert inside a AHK (AutoHotKey) Script, and there I want to extract and save and reuse the value of "EXIF:DateTaken". Is this possible?

Date format: Please check documentation of strftime

The help-text for NConvert contains the line:

Code: Select all

I think you will get more answers when you create an extra thread, naming the problem in the title of the posting.
