Write Ratings to Externally Readable Data?

Post by andrewj » Sun Mar 05, 2017 9:59 am

Hi,
Is there any way to set up XnView so that ratings get written to an externally-readable form as I apply them? The ideal would be a sidecar XMP file, but writing the info back to the JPG EXIF or IPTC data would also work. Can it do this?
Thanks
Andrew

Only XnView MP can write XMP sidecars

Thanks, Pierre.
If I have set ratings in XnView (standard version) can these be read by XnView MP, or would I need to do my ratings there as well?
