0.83: XnView CONSISTENTLY adds a 0 Rating...

Postby Dominius » Tue Dec 06, 2016 1:24 pm

... to JPEG files I do no more than open. Exiftool gives consistent warnings that the URI is wrong (my Exiftool is a newer version than the one in XnView MP, so the 'corrections' in the Warnings are according to Phil Harvey's information). I say the Rating/Rating Percent tag shouldn't even be there in the first place. I never use them I haven't had a reason to use Ratings created by any app since iView Media Pro was bought by Microsoft (2010 or then-about), and before then strictly in Mac OS, which for those who know it has its own "stars & bars" rating scales, etc.

If I choose to start using Ratings again, I'd prefer I weren't press-ganged into it by an app written by someone who, I strongly feel now, has taken on much more than he can handle. IMO it should be XnView saying Exiftool's Ratings are written wrong. By the way, the few times I have added ratings via Exiftool to a picture, XnView MP consistently did not see them.

Sorry but the problem is the warning of ExifTool??

By the way, the few times I have added ratings via Exiftool to a picture, XnView MP consistently did not see them.

could you send me a sample file?

Maybe next time I see the error, I'll upload a file. I wrote a script that uses exiv2 to remove the rating because even Exiftool has its limits; in my install it sees the tags but for some reason can't completely remove them.

Those are issues germane to the respective utilities, I know. I'm getting off-topic as it is.

Zero. Or all my software is bad. Wouldn't surprise me if it was.

I don't understand, your file has a rating of 0, XnViewMP show 'unrated', where is the problem?

The 0 rating wasn't detected in xnview. It was found by exiftool.

Here is a situation where my XnView MP install and your master install detect different things in jpg files with regard to ratings. Even a zero rating applied by an 0.83 install doesn't carry itself off my machine.

And before you ask, I don't have a USB thumb drive with enough capacity to install a portable XnView and image files on. So that means of testing is beyond me, though I would like to do so very much. *Wish in one hand...*

Maybe this isn't even worth the mention. but this "bug" no longer persists in 0.86 x86 GNU.

I still think Pierre could do to upgrade the "embedded" Exiftool to a version newer than 10.1, but that's a "whole other lunch date." :D
