Settings - metadata - add high level rw options

Post by user0 »

XnViewMP 1.7.1 64bit
Windows11 (23H2), display resolution 3840x2160, win scaling 150%

Settings - metadata
managing metadata is not clear enough

  • add high level read/write options for metadata
    on high level - what to do
    on low level (at individual tabs) - how to do
    • existing Metadata tab
      - rename tab → IPTS & XMP
      - add Face tag group
      so it doesn't feel lonely as the only metadata type w/o a group
    • Sidecar tab
      - move 'Update or create XMP Sidecar' to new tab
  • add Read order
    since there are multiple sources to read, explicit order could be useful
    - maybe add some message that there are some conflict data between different sources

Good! About "Read order", I think that "Mockup A" is better.
