Editing of XMP sidecar files also for 'readonly' formats

Post by DerRuhri » Sun Dec 15, 2019 8:44 pm

First of all, thanks for this awesome program!

I need to manage the metadata of images in several formats: PNG, GIF, JPG, but also SVG. The metadata is always written to and read from XMP sidecar files, never from the image itself.

Now SVG is readonly for XnViewMP, which is no problem for my workflow. But this makes the XMP sidecar file also readonly. It would improve my workflow a lot if I could set tags in the metadata also for SVG. The SVG file itself does not need to be changed.

Best- DerRuhri
