Trial And Error

Posted in Uncategorized by iansingleton on February 5, 2010

It’s been a frustrating week of (non) progress.

I’ve been aware for a while of IPTC tags – more here – but didn’t know how to strip the information from my Excel sheet and insert the relevant info into each of the JPEGs. Paul Beddoe has been invaluable in helping to overcome this problem. The first stab successfully wrote the contents of the Excel sheet – but wrote the metadata to the EXIF fields of the JPEG which aren’t readable by Photoshop or Flickr. Even though Paul’s hugely busy with his dayjob, he’s now managing to find some time in the evening to help overcome the problem with IPTC tags. If we can crack that, then we’re a long way towards having a workable application.
