Batch convert: IPTC: can't write comment field?

Post by orbspider »

With the Batch convert tool, I can't manage to write to the XMP comment field of files.

What I can do:
write IPTC caption and XMP description

Which gives a problem with thumbnails tool-tips, as I want to see comments.
Tooltips can show:
IPTC caption and XMP comment

can't show{
XMP description

My workflow:

1. select files, open batch convert
2. Add action > Image> IPTC/XMP
3. in Caption: {Filename}
4. Mode 'XMP only'

Result, the filename was written to XMP dc description.

But XMP description can't be shown in the browser tooltips. only comment can.

I didn't want to put the filename into IPTC caption either, as that should be reserved. I want to hover thumbs and see what the original filename was, if the files get renamed.

so your problem is that you can't show XMP:Caption on thumbnails?
