Day Number
« on: February 09, 2012, 01:08:30 AM »
If I am captioning an ongoing event that last for several days, is there a way to 'subtract' a known date (when it started) from the picture date (taken from the IPTC file info) so I could come up with a day number.
For example: Edinburgh Festival Day 12.
Many thanks,
Martin

Hi, Martin
Not that I know of...but I think it could be a nice "feature request" for a variable.

See this post on how Code Replacement was able to be used to do something similar for the BP Deepwater Horizon spill:
