Save Ratings to sidecar file without modifying JPG

Post by petacz »

Hello,

Is is possible to save images ratings to xmp sidecar files only and don't modify original JPG files?
Would it be possible to add that option?
Here are my settings. With these setting the xmp file is created and the JPG file is also modified.

I don't want to modify original files because I am creating MD5 and PAR2 checksums/recovery records for images and then doing backup to cloud.

Thanks

Hello Pierre,
I just installed the latest version 0.98.1 and the problem is still present.
Once I rate an image, the sidecard file xmp is created, but also the original jpg file is modified.

Could you please take a look or the fix will be included in next version?

Thanks,
Petr
