Re: (Kubuntu 19.04) v0.93.1 64bits -- won't add Colour Space to thumbnail tags

As requested. Please return the Colour Space tag to the next dot-upgrade or full version. You will notice it is Missing in the relevant PNG file below. Attaching a picture file to this post would be irrelevant since I use Exiftool on the command line to add colour space sRGB. Even more rarely has P...

(Kubuntu 19.04) v0.93.1 64bits -- won't add Colour Space to thumbnail tags

I got another laptop, with Windows 8 installed. The identical version for Windows allowed this. In this build, it's not in the list of insert-able tags and when I add it by hand using any of the syntaxes with which I am familiar, all it shows are the words "Colour Space" (instead of, for example, sR...

Keep us "dinosaurs" in the loop please.

I noticed version 0.92, in the .deb version, is only for x64. I'm not sure if I've enabled my i686 Dell laptop[1] to install such apps, or if it is indeed possible. Are you going to abandon your Linux user-base to those who can afford relatively new hardware? If so. Honte à toi Please advise. D [1]I...

Re: The picture does not update

@Walman : In your screenshots, i didn't see either a Reopen or a Reload (hotkey:Ctrl-R). Look for it in View mode. When I run into a stubborn (read:unchanged) thumbnail, I usually use View>Rebuild thumbnails (Bugger; no hotkey in Ubuntu's repo version), first selecting the "offender." It typically ...

MP 0.89 x86: What happened to extrapolated/estimated resolution?

I customise the Info shown in View mode with every new version I install of MP. And I always include Resolution in that information. But in the above-named version, there's no longer an option under Tools>View>Info>Insert>Image selections. It's plainly missing in my install. All I can use is {EXIF:X...

Re: Two items in 0.86 that bother me.

Captions will not display the correct letters, but XMP Dublin Core Descriptions do, when the setting is as I described in my last post. I seem to remember, back when Gwenview and Kipi's Metadata plugins were working correctly (maybe two or three years ago?), that there was a warning that that app's ...

Re: 0.85 x86: Reload doesn't reload Comment for view.

Well, it's been more than a year, and the version I now have installed is 0.89. The problem persists, but I'm now inclined to think it's my system hardware (Dell Inspiron 1720, 2GB RAM). Mainly because, in the interim versions, installed from debs here and on the Ubuntu repositories, the issue remai...

Re: Two items in 0.86 that bother me.

Sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but... I presume you meant, in Settings>Metadata>Encoding, to change from "Locale" to "UTF-8." I did that and now I'm going to look for a pic that displayed the garbage character in its IPTC Caption. I'll add another post to this thread if there's been no chang...

Re: Take out "Supplemental Categories" for IPTC

Sorry to be stubborn about this. But I'm really keen on seeing this taken out of future versions. The fact is, I keep a fixed list of Keywords for most of the pictures I annotate, and I used to have a SED script and a bash script or two to go with it, derived from a slightly (in most instances) diff...

Re: 0.83: XnView CONSISTENTLY adds a 0 Rating...

Maybe this isn't even worth the mention. but this "bug" no longer persists in 0.86 x86 GNU.

I still think Pierre could do to upgrade the "embedded" Exiftool to a version newer than 10.1, but that's a "whole other lunch date." :D

Re: [feature request]Display net folder in folder tree view window

Upvote +1 (to use a Quora term). Excellent suggestion. I haven't even a LAN share going, but 'smoothing' this out to work in a more intuitive way is very Linux and would appeal to new users who have network shares on which they have stored image files.

Re: Take out "Supplemental Categories" for IPTC

I was hoping there would be at least a comment on this thread from Pierre or XnTriq. Considering MP is not quite "as far along" in terms of features and ingrained functions (compared to Classic), it might prove easier to make this "excision" (removal?) in MP first. Not to mention (as a much-older th...

Re: 0.85 x86: Reload doesn't reload Comment for view.

This same flaw persists in .86. "Open" pictures do not update with comments/new comments written from the command line, when "File>Reload is 'run,' but pictures left "closed" in the Browser (or the same picture/s as seen in the Browser) will update with the changed/new comments if i click "View>Reb...

Two items in 0.86 that bother me.

First, Unicode support. I paste in a letter with a diaeresis from KDE Character Select into a text file I'll use Exiftool (again, version 10.56 -- so much newer that the "embedded" one in your app it's almost laughable) to write into a JPEG file, and when I view that data --- let's say it's an IPTC ...
