MIE (Meta Information Encapsulation) files support

Post by oops66 » Tue Aug 26, 2008 9:45 am

Hello,
It will be fine to have an .mie ("Meta Information Encapsulation") files support into XnView.
MIE:
http://search.cpan.org/~exiftool/Image- ... ool/MIE.pm
By this way? it will be possible to save (into only one .mie file), or read, import, export all meta data (IPTC,XMP,EXIF, GPS, embeded thumbnail, ICC,...) from an image file (jpg, tif,, png,gif, or mie file...) to an other one (or some others) image file.
see also:

PS: maybe the best way to read a .mie file into XnView is to generate an one pixel .jpg file like this (a blank photo with all meta data) :

(Do save as ... to see into XnView 1.9x ...)

With XnView MP v0.015 embedde thumbnails .mie files are shown correctly.

For information:
With XnView MP v0.015 .mie files are shown correctly for the embedded thumbnails, but not correctly for IPTC, EXIF, XMP,... metadata.
See the difference between the same .mie and .jpg sample, with the same embedded metadatas:

http://membres.lycos.fr/oops66/1pixel.jpg
(Do save as ... to see into XnView MP v0.015 ...)
