IPTC Caption and Synology NAS
« on: December 16, 2021, 01:51:30 AM »
Hello,

I send jpgs to my Synology NAS. IPTC-Metadata written by PM seem to be incomplete. Only keywords are shown in the Synology Photo app. IPTC-Metadata written by ADOBE Lightroom seem to be complete. Caption/Description and keywords are shown. If I reimport this files from NAS PM shows all IPTC-Metatdata.
I changed some IPTC/XMP settings but nothing helps.

Please post sample images.  One from PM, one from Lr, and a screenshot of your IPTC/XMP settings in the Photo Mechanic Plus Preferences dialog.  Use the 'Attachments and other options' link when you're composing your reply to this message and there you'll be able to upload your files.

Thanks,

-Kirk

Oryk,

Thanks.  I will look into this when I return from the holidays.  Please don't report this post for moderation anymore.

The data that the Synology NAS is using is EXIF data only.  It is ignoring XMP metadata.  Photo Mechanic does not put the description and keywords in EXIF data.  Lightroom/Photoshop completely rewrite the file and have the ability to make new EXIF data and include that data.  Photo Mechanic updates the JPEG directly (no image loss occurs) and cannot expand the EXIF data to insert those fields.
