Categories/Keyword Tagging ???

Post by BuckSkin » Sat Dec 01, 2018 2:13 am

I have the most recent version of XnView.

I may be wrong, but my understanding is that "Categories" is what most programs call Keyword Tags.

Try as I may, I have not been able to figure out how to create new tags/categories and also sub-tags/categories; is this possible; and if so, how ?

Thanks for reading and all help is appreciated.

Select "catégories" in : "View, Tree pane" menu
In this new screen, you can right-click on a category to add, delete, rename ...
When finished, select View, Tree pane, Folders ... to come back to normal display

Instead of using text menus, you can use the three buttons at the top of the folders pane.

I think XnviewMP is better than Xnview for tagging.
XnviewMP categories can automatically write IPTC or XMP keywords in pictures.

Thanks; I will try that.
I may also refresh my MP installation to the latest version and do my tagging there.
