    Default Picture Metadata?

    Hi all,

    First of all, kudos to creating a fantastic piece of software. And an excellent support & user base behind it. I've been a big fan of BC for a long time.

    On to my question. I am interested to know if there is support in comparing the metadata of pictures/images. I have a large library of digital photos, which I tag with image metadata. Now that there is an excellent picture compare view, I'd like to know if there will be support for comparing metadata.

    Thanks!

    Ed

    Hi Ed,

    Not currently. Are you referring to EXIF data in JPEGs, or some other metadata?

    I would very much like to be able to include a comparison of EXIF data within the image comparison

    I've added this to our Customer Wishlist. If there is any other metadata types or resource information you think would be useful, please let us know.

    Thanks

    Yes I was referring to EXIF data. Any news on that status of this feature? Or is it still in the queue?

    Thanks!

    Hi Ed,

    Sorry, comparison of EXIF data is still in the queue for a future release.

    Default Rules to compare EXIF data in JPEG files

    I've written a super-simple EXIF comparison tool that utilizes the freely available JHEAD program. The attached is for BC2 since I don't have BC3, but I'm sure it will be easy to convert.

    Note that probably doesn't fully solve the problem that people want, but it is good enough for me. I set it to be the default rule for JPG files, but typically I will also open the files in the Picture view to compare the contents too.

    inthewoods,

    Thanks for sharing. My coworker Erik just converted the JHEAD rule into an additional file format for BC3. It will display EXIF information in the BC3 Text Compare. You can get it from:

    Cool! I noticed that the Canon cameras use EXIF to store metadata in an external file for video, so you can add ".THM" to the list of file formats that can be compared with this rule.

    I have two folder with images. I know that they contain XMP data with face regions from Photo Gallery and titles etc, but also older descriptions in tag formats such as IPTC and/or EXIF.

    I know that the images are the same, and that just metadata has been entered or altered. A more or less "complete" image metadata compare would be great!

    At the moment I have no solution to comparing these two folders other than looking at the tags in the applications that created them and manually enter the missing tags into the image (using the latest program, storing as XMP, since XMP also includes support for face regions).

    Best regards,
    Andreas
