IPTC write with NC

Post by panpan » Mon Mar 22, 2004 9:51 pm

Hello
I'd like to write IPTC data from a database (keywords) into my jpeg files. It seems to me that I can edit the IPTC data with xnview, remove them with NConvert, but can I WRITE new IPTC values with NC ?

Or maybe do you know WHERE I can find a php class to do so (my software is for a php-mysql application)

Many thanks for your software I use for a long time now !

Yes, it's not possible.
You want a feature to add new IPTC values in NConvert?

Oh OUI !
I'd like to run a batch program to update IPTC values (and exif as well ?)from my database, where all my keywords are stored, so the pictures will be available for search with any standard program in the future (I have 14000 pictures today with >60000 keywords...)
It's a web php/Mysql application that permits myself to see/label/share my pictures from anywhere.

I'm looking similar solution. I was tryning with Covert in ImageMagick and PHP, but it's very complicated.

:D
I was created JPG thumbnail from PSD, JPG and EPS files.
NConvert can transfer from these formats maintaining IPTC data. Very good!.
But TIF is not transfered. (TIF and IPTC is only in Xnview) :(


About last post (iptc - php - and mysql)
I found a very fast solution using iptcparse() and iptcembed() (read more in www.php.net).
