Problems searching for images --IPTC data

Post by cseptima » Fri Feb 19, 2016 6:22 pm

Hi,
I'm using XnView to manage a considerable amount of archival material and I want to be able to search for images using my IPTC data. I have no problems searching with keywords when I place my search in a specific subfolder, but if I want to find those same images in the larger folders (the ones that contain the subfolders with the images with the keywords), then the search engine doesn't find anything --why is that?
Thank you.

... Maybe you can also try XnViewMP (better adapted for that - ex: support native unicode)

... And you have into "search" for "IPTC keywords": "use catalog" and " "Recurse through subfolders" and "Match any of the followings conditions" ticked ?
