Malformed characters in EXIF Copyright field

Post by jmoliver »

Open attached image in XnView and view information in EXIF Metadata.

Encountered Behavior:
Malformed characters in EXIF Copyright field for Copyright symbol and accented e (é). Note that the EXIF Artist field displays the accented é correctly.

Expected Behavior:
- Although EXIF field have been limited to ASCII per EXIF standard. Per the Metadata Working Group Guidelines (Ver 2, 2010), modern applications can write and read UTF-8 characters to certain EXIF fields in order to maintain consistency with equivalent IPTC, XMP fields.
