All metadata shown by exiftool will be displayed

Sure? I had to activate s lot and to see the lens, I had to enter the field manually.

Nevertheless, thanks, it is very useful to see not so common fields. For viewing photos and to see the metadata from time to time I prefer f-spot, but the goal of this app as another one.

exiftool "-usercomment<filenumber" DIR

Any help as to how to do this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I wonder if I should also be doing this for -config files (ie. check the exe directory for them too)

...and apologies for the threadjack. :P

The "exiftool" Application / Re: exclude exif metadata when writing xmp sidecar

@StarGeek: I shouldn't have doubted you -- you do use Exiftool more than me! :)

Yes, you are correct.  I forgot that I added that.  And if I read my own documentation:

            ARGFILE may exist relative to either the current directory
            or the exiftool directory unless an absolute pathname is given.


Thanks for reminding me.

Minor correction: It should go in the current working directory, or any directory you want if you specify the path too.

Minor threadjack but there has to be something else.  Maybe ENV path?  Because all day now I've been calling an Arg file that's not in my working dir and without a full path specification and it's been working fine.  It is in the same directory as exiftool.exe and that directory is part of my ENV path.

The "exiftool" Application / Re: Copy from other file iptc-keywords to exif-keywords
« Last post by elhiero on December 17, 2017, 05:26:38 PM »
I am playing with the Android app from http://www.fstopapp.com/ and try to find out where I have to write some metadata. F-Stop shows the most metadata I have found with an android-app. If you know another or better one, let me know. I want to view photos in a folder and look at the metadata, if I want to know something special. I dont care if the field is XPKeywords or whatever, I just want to see the content somehow. So yes, I meant XPKeywords or something similar in the Exif-section. Since the file on the phone is a copy I can do what is needed by the app. At the end I want to see all photos of a tag. Maybe the app uses an own database for the tags, I have to do tests, what can be done.

Fastphototagger is a GUI for exiftool. You can find a desktop version and an Android version  ....
freeware
All metadata shown by exiftool will be displayed
You can also edit metadata decribed in settings, metadata panel ...

The "exiftool" Application / Re: exclude exif metadata when writing xmp sidecar

Thank you !
The only way I didn't try was to let -xmp:all  at the end of the line. That was the solution.  8)

And I understand now Iptc2xmp.args
I thought it was possible to write (encapsulate ?)  iptc data into xmp sidecar, if some xmp metadata were missing in my photos.
But if it's only a translation, I'd rather write complete xmp metadata first, and then create xmp sidecar with -xmp option.

I'm using only jpg for tagging, filtering, display etc ...
My Raw files are stored in another place (external HDD) as backup, and sometimes used to get a high quality image.
If I can generate xmp sidecar files from jpegs, I'll move them to RAW folders.  (same names of photos, jpg+raw generated by camera)
It's a workaround : I'm using XnviewMP and it's currently not able to write caption, city, country in sidecar files ( only keywords and rating)
And raw files are very heavy to use in catalog, and categorize etc ..

In such cases, you can use the iptc2xmp.args file to facilitate the translation.  It can be found in the main exiftool download or on sourceforge.  Just put it in the same directory as the exiftool executable.

Minor correction: It should go in the current working directory, or any directory you want if you specify the path too.

You should have gotten an error message for each file that wasn't written.
