Here's something that would help: Can someone make a png image that has a Description/Comment field that *DOES* show up in these other programs? With such a sample png I should be able to figure out the difference.
well, using Photoshop CS2, I can add the info to what appears to be the same field (Description >Description) as in the jpegs, but cannot find the added info using Xnview (which did
find the info from the jpegs).EDIT//
FWIW the info I added to the PNG, using Photoshop -- supposedly in the same field as the jpeg -- can only
be read by Photoshop. I do wonder if there is a limitation on PNGs, that they are treated differently than other image files (jpegs at any rate). Hopefully you find something helpful in dluby's file.//EDIT
But the jpeg info was difficult enough to find as it was.
I'm starting to wonder:
could it be added to a more universally accessible field?
(I, and I imagine others, move screenshots around to different project folders so not always using SC to read/view.)
Any file manager users out there that add info to their files for access via the file manager?
And/or file managers that can read info -- but from where?
I know XYplorer implemented something re adding comments to files -- or was it for tagging of sorts?
I remember (I think) there being a bit of a fuss a while back about descript.ion files being used by one manager -- looking, I think they not a good idea (non-standardised, separate file
with info for all files in the folder)
Will do some research myself if I get a chance over the next few days.
