Re: Very important: Metadata V2 for 0.70 (EXIF, XMP, IPTC et

Thanks for taking to time to explain... ...Because only in corner cases one will submit queries which will force the program to search in BOTH m1 and m2 (their scope is very different) and hence we will have an important speedup. Yes, I agree that my searches would fit that pattern, not needing m1 a...

Re: Canon Makernotes and byte ordering

There is another possible work-around. You could change the EXIF to little-endian with ExifTool... Thanks Phil, that's useful to know. I checked a few of my older panoramas, when I wasn't trying to be so careful about what got overwritten - I had simply used PhotoME to export/import the entire exif...

Re: Canon Makernotes and byte ordering

could you send me a sample file? Yes, I have some samples reduced in size - less than 2MB total. But the directions in the "bug reporting guidelines" sticky just say send to "image".

Re: Best way to use IPTC for detailed photo metadata?

I think IPTC caption and Keywords are the best available options at the moment. These can be listed as "title" and "tags" respectively in windows explorer. They are both indexed in Picasa and can be used for searches. The search on windows-7 does not seem to index them readily - I have it set to "fi...

Canon Makernotes and byte ordering

Hi, I have a situation where makernotes are not being displayed by XnView in images I manipulate with exiftool - I saw it first in v1.99.4, and it is the same in v1.99.5. background : For panoramas, I shoot raw (Canon EOS), convert to 16-bit tiff, run through Hugin, Photoshop and then finally save a...

Re: Geotagging: adding GPS data to the image EXIF contents

Why not choose a GPS devoice that records geo info to photos automatically... That solution would be OK if you were just starting, and it suited your purpose. In my case, I already have cameras and lenses for which that option is ridiculously expensive, and I already have a more capable GPS receive...

Re: Geotagging: adding GPS data to the image EXIF contents

... good summary. Suggestion: precise what tool is indeed used to set the meta data, e.g. GeoSetter is using ExifTool, and thus sometimes slow. So it could be a new column "tagger" in your table, either with "internal" or e.g. "ExifTool". Another column could be the "mapping" tool, e.g. GoogleMaps ...

Geotagging: adding GPS data to the image EXIF contents

Thanks to a couple of threads in this forum, I found some software for geotagging my images. Then with Google I found some more. In fact, I found so many that I thought it would be useful to summarise my findings as a mini-review. I have posted it here: http://web.aanet.com.au/cameron/GPS/GPS-images...

PTLens 8.4.12 seems to work correctly with XnView 1.91.2

Correctly extracts exif camera details and applies to image.

Chromatic aberration seems to work.

I cannot reproduce this. Is your change big enough to show up in the thumbnail?

I tried with paint and Photoshop and the thumbnail was updated every time (TIFFs and BMPs - no compression).

Simplest test is just to flip the image horizontally. That way you know it is a big change in a thumbnail.
