XnView never enters any IPTC data in XMP format

Post by OldGuy » Thu Jan 09, 2014 4:09 am

When I enter a date or any other data into an IPTC field XnView does not generate XMP data (only IPTC - IIM I suppose) - even when the "Update or create XMP" box is checked. Is this a bug ???? Am I doing something wrong ????

I am using Version 2.13 dated Dec 12, 2013 and my files are TIF files. I'm using WinHex to view the files so I can see the binary data written into it. XnView has many fine features but this is a big problems for me. I have a couple thousand photos in a huge number of folders to update and will be regularly adding more so having to use a second program to copy the dates and other fields to XMP format is pretty clumsy.

Thanks for any help

Is support for this likely to be added any time soon?

Another reason to bring ExifTool to Classic.
Pierre: why code it yourself when Phil's already done it?
