XnView Needs More Metadata Comment Copying Support

Post by mel2000 »

Since XnView uses ExifTool, it should be able to support all EXIF, IPTC and JPEG Comment copying in both directions.

XnView currently supports:
* Copying from JPEG Comment to IPTC Caption field (exiftool "-Caption-Abstract < $Comment")
* Copying from IPTC Caption to JPEG Comment field (exiftool "-Comment < $Caption-Abstract")
* Copying from EXIF User Comment to IPTC Caption field (exiftool "-Caption-Abstract < $UserComment")

But why doesn't it also support:
* Copying from JPEG Comment to EXIF User Comment field (exiftool "-UserComment < $Comment")
* Copying from IPTC Caption to EXIF Comment field (exiftool "-UserComment < $Caption-Abstract")
* Copying from EXIF Comment to JPEG Comment field (exiftool "-Comment < $UserComment")
