Does XnViewMMP update XMP CreatorTool?

Post by monitor » Tue Aug 20, 2019 10:47 pm

After getting back to review some images to which I know I have added some information which ends up in Xmp.iptcExt.PersonInImage, the images do show the data, but, although I was reasonably sure they were added with XnViewMP, the Xmp.xmp.CreatorTool is listed as ACDSEE Quick View.

I may well have, at some time in the past, used ACDSEE Quick View to set up the images initially, but I am almost 100% sure I added the person-in-image info using XnViewMP.

Question: does XnViewMP leave any 'trace' of its involvement in editing any metadata in an image?
I can well image that it might not, but I am curious and would like to educate myself a bit more on this subject :-)
TIA

As a follow-up after all this time, is it possible the personinimage data was added with XnviewMP?
I don't seem to be able to find out how to do it, if in fact the data was added by XnViewMP ;-)

Picasa software can add this field...
Maybe Microsoft Live Gallery also
but Xnviewmp does not...

Thank you for reminding me :)
After finding some of my older images recently, which did have some PersonInImage data, I was trying to figure out how it got there.
It must have been Picasa which I used some time ago, before it was abandoned by Google.
Now I am trying to find a replacement so that I can add the same information to other photos.
Any recommendations?

Picasa, even abandoned by Google, still works fine !

But XnViewMp doesn't read PersonInImage tag.

I had to copy picasa .ini files content into keywords (with AvPicFaceXmpTagger software)
Another way would be to copy the XMP tag into keywords with ExifTool .

Maybe we could ask Pierre to create an option for this with XnviewMP ...

Adding such a feature certainly would be of great interest to my work with family photos and family tree research. :D
Is there an easy way to transfer the topic to Suggestions?

Thank you
looking forward to this, though I do see a problem of how one would keep any kind of history or(version control) ;-)
Because I assume that by adding any particular application's name here, that application would be blamed for any and all issues left behind by any previous tool.
