Re: Managing Categories

Thanks from my side as well :) I don't get that many material from others but I made the same experience and I have set the corresponding option as well to keep my category tree clean. But there is a side effect to it: If somebody needs to create picture with embedded category information, you can a...

Re: Category information lost

Good morning and thanks a lot for the quick response. To answer your questions first: Q1: Yes, I have moved the folder outside XNViewMP. Your question makes me think that this may have been my mistake. If I am sorting pictures and move them around I do it inside XNViewMP. Because of the amount of da...

Category information lost

Dear all, hopefully somebody can release me from the panic that just struck me, because after having to move my private photo data to another drive I seem to have lost all category information. Here is the story: My PC used to have two physical drives for data, because it is used as private PC as we...

Re: IPTC/XMP Workflow support

For this I think you need to uncheck the 3rd option. Also Note: You may need to change modes (Pull down) depending on is it to change iptc or xmp. I believe these settings only effect edits done inside this dialog. Also I agree These are very hidden and kind of a pain to mess with every time. I Als...

Re: IPTC/XMP Workflow support

The recommendation for the settings in the screenshot above have at least helped on my side, but I don't know if they work differently depending on other settings, e.g. in main preferences | meta data | XMP - IPTC. The only thing that is still not working on my side is replacing a value. E.g. - If I...

Re: IPTC/XMP Workflow support

The only thing I can think of is maybe you don't have settings set right under: (Options tab), inside the batch process dialog. I must admit that I never found my way to this option page on the very far right end of the dialogue :o So, I changed the settings according to your screenshot, tried it a...

Re: IPTC/XMP Workflow support

My own way is to perform the third step first ... I got the same problem Add a check box "Dont modify keywords" in the "edit iptc/xmp" windows would be a fine solution ... Thanks ! To be honest, I haven't checked the method of setting the creator / source / copyright first and THEN add the categori...

IPTC/XMP Workflow support

Dear all, I am more or less new here although using XnView for quite a while now already. Most of my issues I could figure out myself but now it seems like I need help. I am using XnView MP primarily for organizing, tagging and personalizing of photos and graphics I create, not for processing them. ...
