Re: Reattaching Categories

Did you use "Base path" ? How many photos do you have to correct ? At the top of the "categories" panel, you can use "categorie' s filter , export" to create a xml file containing the paths of photos that are in the catalog. By editing this (text) file, maybe you'll be able to find what is the probl...

Re: Picasa, visages et XnView

Pour info, je crois savoir que dans l'ensemble de métadonnées liées à "region names", il y a la description (les coordonnées) des rectangles contenant le visage de chaque personne identifiée. L'idée était bonne, mais résiste t-elle à une rotation de l'image, ou à son redimensionnement ? pas sûr. Du ...

Re: Picasa, visages et XnView

Vaste sujet ... XnViewMp ne peut importer que des mots-clés dans les catégories. Les mots clés lus sont IPTC:keywords, XMP-dc:Subject et XMP-lr:subject, et constituent une base de données, le Catalogue , et l'outil qui va avec "les categories". Je n'ai pas étudié le cas d'autres mots-clés (Digikam ?...

Re: Sauvegarde des catégories

Je n'ai pas beaucoup étudié XnView, mais XnViewMp est capable d'importer le fichier Xnview.db, et ensuite d'inscrire les catégories dans les photos, sous forme de mots-clés normalisés IPTC ou XMP . C'est une façon de "valoriser" votre ensemble de photos qui seront à ce moment là enrichies des inform...

Re: filter for exif attributes

You can enable the option " View, Sort by, Show Header" to get headers at the top of the browser
With a right-click in headers, you can move , add, delete columns ...
- look for "maker" or "model" and enable

Now, when you click in a header, photos will be sorted on this criteria

Re: Newby question: filter on file type

if that is the primary purpose of your work, maybe you should use a keyword ? -select all pdf files , add "documents" -select all txt files , add "documents" etc ... Other way, for a new feature in xnviewmp, the job is almost done in "settings, file list, custom filter ..." What you're asking for is...

Re: Multiple inheritence (for categories)

some people ask for the opposite,
stamps

-------spain
travel
------france
------japan
but I agree with you. (but I didn't completely understand your wish)
I think a keyword should be unique

Re: Newbie question on tagging

Actually I would never want to change the orig files in any way (including iptc, xmp or whatever).
Use only "XMP sidecar" files.
Metadata are saved in xmp files near to each file

That's the good answer for q1 q2 q3

Re: Newbie question on tagging

Hello, Two ways for labelling : a) save labels only in xnviewmp's database (catalog), or b) save labels also in files. But only some types of files support embedded tags ( jpg photos and a few others). If you want to tag any types of files (a), only XnViewMp will be able to read it's own catalog, yo...
