Categorize by event? ITPC?

Postby 3x5 » Mon Jul 03, 2017 3:34 am

I am in the process of moving away from Shotwell and using XnView exclusively. In shotwell, you can browse by event, and this goes Year, Month, Event Name. I find this the be a useful way to organize my personal photos, like family photos.

I know that there is an ITPC field called 'event' for this kind of categorization, but I don't see this field when I go to edit ITPC data in XnView. Is there a way to get a similar effect?

Even being able to browse by Year/Month the photo was created could be helpful. Is there any way to do this?

Could you send a file with this field?

I don't know that I have a file with this data in it. I just saw online that there is such a thing as itpc 'event' field. I think shotwell just uses its own database to categorize by events.

I've got a PDF file * that lists a few applications and what they "label" the standard and extended IPTC v.4.0 metadata tags, so if you name an application that allows one to view IPTC fields I could probably look it up in this file and tell you what it's called. Of course, not being in journalism, I use it in a somewhat different way than how it was intended.

That tag is officially designated "Fixture Identifier" in the IIM v.4 list, but I've seen it called such things as Event and JobId in different GUI apps. It's always struck me as odd that IrfanView doesn't read this one in at all.

Well, guess what? XnView does. Along with just about every known, or at any rate commonly-used in the relevant professions and trades, EXIF tag and even raw XML.

I'd give XnView another look, were I gt13013. It doesn't take one long to get accustomed to another application solution, especially one so similar in features to IrfanView.

Silversleeves (XnView Forum → Load/Save slideshow list to a text file?) wrote:Where IrfanView falls down, for me, is that it will not read in the IPTC Core "Fixture Identifier" tag, called "Event" in MS Expression Media 2, "Job Identifier" in XnView and Photoshop, and by its original name in Apple Aperture and ACDSee Pro 2 and 3.
