"No writable tags set" error
« on: November 01, 2015, 05:13:24 PM »
Hi,

I want to write the filename to an EXIF tag (using Windows) as explained e.g. in http://u88.n24.queensu.ca/exiftool/forum/index.php/topic,5722.msg27977.html#msg27977:

Code: [Select]
exiftool "-exif:imagedescription<basename" -r -ext .jpg * -overwrite_original
However, I always get a "No writable tags set" error. The same issue exists also when using other tags like UserComment. Any idea how to solve this problem?

Disregard...

I found the message to install the config file containing the basenam macro.
