iPTC Linux/Mac/Win compatible

Post by michaauskiel »


A lot of german newspapers have got a problem: there are using Windows (of course thats the biggest problem). If a Mac- or Linux-user sends them pictures the "umlaute" (for example: äüöß) disappear.

The reason is a different Character Set (German: Zeichensatz): ISO/IEC 8859-1 , MacOs, UTF8 or ASCII.

So, is it possible to make a setting in the iptc, to set wich character set is on the other side (recipients)???
