Add XMP sidecar preview

Post by michel038 »

Hi Pierre,
Could you add preview for XMP sidecar files ?
1) When image is selected, add a "XMP sidecar" pane in info pane, near exif ..
2) when xmp sidecar file is selected, display it's content in preview window

Thanks

maybe a method already exists ?

Perhaps better XMP data (sidecar or embedded)?

...and in order to be really useful to allow the user to select what he wants and via Ctrl+C to copy the data from there. I think that the Qt widget already supports this.

On another PC (windows 8 ) , I tried xnviewmp V0.89 beta 1 , I could see previews of xmp file.

But on my own machine (Windows 7 pro) with V0.89 beta2, I can't see preview of xmp file ...

Plugin missing ? wrong file association ? different version of xnview ? or different O.S. ?

New version V0.89 installed.

Preview for XMP File is OK 8)

Thank you for this work !

- XMP metadata are also displayed in informations (xmp) panel. Excellent !

When reading this panel , I can't guess if xmp metadata are embedded or in a xmp sidecar files, unless I suppose that these metadata are compliant with the rule ("no metadata embedded in raw files")
- - minor .

Problem ccomes back.
On a new install of XnViewMP (V0.89), preview for XMP files is OK, in the thumbnails, and in preview panel.

When I copy my previous xnview.ini file into the new installation folder, xnviewmp does not show XMP files content ...
I'm looking for an idea ...
