IPTC Paste Snapshots in Beta III V4.5
« on: April 02, 2007, 06:49:10 AM »
I found the feature of saving multiple IPTC snapshots, while it is great to have, it was confusing to me. The list comes up with "IPTC Snapshot 1", "IPTC Snapshot 2", "IPTC Snapshot 3"...

It took me a while to find out which one was the latest and which was the oldest. I thought "IPTC Snapshot 3" was the latest one, however it was the oldest one.

Is there a better way to label these? Maybe with a timestamp?

I suppose we could do that.  The reason you are getting generic snapshots is likely because your Caption fields are empty?  The caption field is used to create a small preview of the snapshot so when it is empty, a generic one is created.  Putting a time stamp in front would help here.  I agree.

I'll see if I can squeeze that in before the final release.
