0.87: Wrong sorting of pictures with XMP metadata

Post by jacomo »

XnView Version:
XnView MP Linux
Version 0.87 64bits (Sep 5 2017)
Libformat version 7.10

OS:
Ubuntu 16.04

Description:
If a pictures has XMP metadata (rating, colour label, keyword, etc?) the picture is automatically sorted in the database and gets a tag by default. This behaviour can not be disabled.

To reproduce:
1. Start XnViewMP with clean Profile (or delete the Profile and db-folder)
2. Uncheck this option: [Tools > Settings > Metadata > IPTC&XMP > Import XMP subject...]
3. Go to a folder with a picture with XMP metadata (rating, colour label, keyword, ...)

Actual behaviour (bug):
The rating/color label/category of the pictures was set in the database. The unchecking of the option has no effect.

Expected behaviour:
The pictures does not get a rating/color label etc. in the database.


Can you confirm this bug?
It would be very nice if you could correct this.

Many thanx

Yes, I disabled the following option:
"Import XMP subject or IPTC keyword to DB Categories"

But the pictures were assigned to DB Categories nevertheless. And the pictures were rated and got numbers from 1 to 5 or a colour label - if there is a corresponding XMP-data in the file.

yes, you're right. The option "Import XMP subject..." works correctly with DB Categories but not for rating/label. Rating/Label are imported every time - independently from enabling or disabling the option.

small Question: :-)
Is this bug a big one to correct?
Do you have a rough estimate, when the next version will come?
