Deleting files in fullscreen mode deleted all folders!

I got a serious problem. While viewing pictures in fullscreen mode, I deleted unwanted pictures by pressing "Del". In the background, XnView deleted not only the pictures, but all pictures in the pictures folders. It seems that the focus of the cursor changed in the background while I was viewing th...

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

1. Metadata placement We need two options: embedded and sidecar regardless of file type. I think that this is solved & summed up in Pierre's post here: Currently if export is enabled, jpeg/png files are updated, and not for other But if i add sidecar support, they will be So like that? Export to: *...

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

I would like to sum up this thread a little bit because it get's confusing. 1. The initial request was to prevent XMP-sidecars from being written for JPG and TIF. I guess this could be done by a simple "if" statement before the writing process. 2. The second request was to have an option to automati...

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

If both image and sidecar file have been modified since the DB date, and XnView detects a certain item has been modified differently in both sources, then this is beyond any automatic assumption of priority and XnView should ideally pop up some window prompting manual choice. This becomes even more...

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

These programs (I didn't work too much with RawTherapee and I didn't saw at all SilkyPix) doesn't support XMP standard? No, they don't, nor does Rawtherapee. Rawtherapee produces a sidecar in the form "abc.orf.pp3" next to abc.orf, Silkypix produces a sidecar "abc.orf.5.spd" in a subfolder "SILKYPI...

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

And by the way: To have an option to handle other sidecars as well (like pp3 from Rawtherapee), i.e. that they will be moved, deleted, copied when the raw is moved, deleted, copied, would be grate! Regards, hic Oh, sure! Is a stringent need. A must have. Already requested with details of implementa...

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

Ideally, the metadata handling would be as follows (IMHO): Jpg, Tif, PNG, DNG: Changes of keywords, ratings etc. are written to the file automatically when something is changed, no xmp-sidecar is created. Raw files (orf, rw2, cnr etc.): Changes of keywords, ratings etc. are written to a xmp-sidecar ...

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

I wonder that nobody before recognized this behaviour. My question was if that is intended, I now know it is not :wink: How do others assure that the metadata of the database and the files are synchronized? Lightroom does indeed write metadate to files, if files are writable, and to XMP if they are ...

Re: feature request: xmp sidecars for RAW files

Thanks; works splendidly! It would be great though to have the option to write the xmp files automatically when adding a keyword. I use PhotoNinja b.t.w. - great results, albeit a bit slow. Perhaps the best thing would be one or two checkboxes saying "Export keywords in XMP metadata" and "Export me...

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

Yes, that is exactly what I do. The Jpg is updated and a new XMP file is created along the Jpg.

Re: Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

Yes, there is. If I tag a JPEG file in XNViewMP and afterwards update the file according to the database, a new xmp file shines up, containing the keywords.

Tagging JPEG creates xmp-sidecar

Hello, I just started to learn working with XNViewMP, and I'm impressed so far. However, if I try to add a category to a file, XNView always creates an xmp-sidecar file. That is fine for raw files, but odd behaviour for jepg, tiff and dng, which all can hold xmp in the file itself. Did I miss to che...
