gflSetIPTCValue - repeatable tags

Post by kurka666 »

Hi

I'm testing version 2.40 and see that there still are some problems with tags 27 and 118. This are repeatable tags, just like 25 (keywords), but when I add the second value with tag 27, the first value is overwritten, leaving only one tag value. The same goes for tag 118.

Example:
gflSetIPTCValue (iptc, 27, "value 1")
gflSetIPTCValue (iptc, 27, "value 2")

this will leave only one item with tag 27, and the value will be "value 2"

thanks

Henrik

Currently i support only keywords or supplemental categories.
What is tag 27 & 118??

118 is officialy named "Contact". Commonly used to list persons in a picture
27 is "Content location name". I.e. the place where the image was shot.

You'll find a very good description of all IPTC fields at www.iptc.org (I don't have the complete link here now).

Both fields are quite important to me ;-)

thanks

hi again

Do you think you will add support for the tags mentioned? If not, I'll consider work-arounds...
