Howto become Structured Keywords in "Person Shown" Field?
« on: April 18, 2017, 03:28:18 pm »
Hello,

I ve a question, that I carry a long time with me.
Red carpet and people/politics Photographer please read :)

For tagging persons, it can be done relatively quickly with the Structured Keyword Browser (CTRL-SHIFT-K).
Unfortunately, the names and synonyms are only going to the keyword (or caption)-IPTC-Field.

I would like it to apply to the "Persons Shown" field.
Advantage: Then the person names can easily insert in the necessary metadata fields like with the {persons} - Variable in Caption , Headline, Keywords - at once.

The "Edit persons shown" function/browser is not so good (not fast in selecting entrys and no synonyms) as the Structured Keyword Browser.

So, does anybody have an idea, howto "fix" that?
If not, I think there should be a Feature(-Request) for extending the possible destination-fields in the Structured Keyword Browser to "Persons Shown" (not only keyword and caption) right in the place.


Sincerely, brendan

You might like to try something along the lines I use. Using Google Sheets I convert a list of names so that the surname is first followed by the Christian name(s), the surname again and then the country in brackets. The list of names is then inserted in the Autocomplete folder and accessed via the People field and auto-complete in the caption field where I delete bits as necessary.

This is an example from a list of nearly one thousand names available on the event website that I used at the Suzuki World Judo Championships a couple of weeks ago.

List of competitors -60 kg
Papinashvili Amiran Papinashvili (GEO)
Takato Naohisa Takato (JPN)
Garrigos Francisco Garrigos (ESP)
Takabatake Eric Takabatake (BRA)
Safarov Orkhan Safarov (AZE)
Dashdavaa Amartuvshin Dashdavaa (MGL)
Mshvidobadze Robert Mshvidobadze (RUS)
Nagayama Ryuju Nagayama (JPN)
Mckenzie Ashley Mckenzie (GBR)
Ganbat Boldbaatar Ganbat (MGL)
Petrikov Pavel Petrikov (CZE)
Khousrof Ali Khousrof (YEM)
Trbovc Matjaz Trbovc (SLO)
Pelim Phelipe Pelim (BRA)
Siccardi Yann Siccardi (MON)
Moudatir Yassine Moudatir (MAR)
Pedro Nayr Garcia Pedro (ANG)
Khyar Walide Khyar (FRA)
Manzi Elios Manzi (ITA)
Diaz Adonis Diaz (USA)

I hope this helps.
