We had 7 members at the meeting.

JPEG and Metadata

Detail Data For An Image As Interpreted By Microsoft.

Detail Data For An Image As Interpreted By Microsoft.

A major part of the meeting was taken up with trying to figure out JPG metadata what Microsoft Windows picture details as described by it’s Properties/Details relates to other applications such as Picasa or Lightroom.

Just trying to write a summary of what we found and the conflicts that showed up can be a problem.

Hopefully by the January 2014 meeting I will be able to answer some of the questions that came up during the December 2013 meeting.

If you are using Microsoft Windows Image Properties to document or describe an image and later use that data in a slideshow then only input into the Title data only. This is done by right-clicking an image and selecting Properties. Then select the Details tab. Select Title: and input the text. When done click Apply.

You are much better off using some other program to input the Title and Caption data.

I have no idea, so far, how the Subject data correlates to anything. The Comments data becomes EXIF User Comment data.

EXIF Metadata was developed for digital cameras. This also will be discussed at the January 2014 meeting.

If this all sounds confusing then you have Microsoft to thank.

This will all be demonstrated at the January 2014 meeting.

January Meeting

In a word or two: JPEG Metadata.

I still want to do a ‘Walk About.’ Didn’t I say that last month? Bring your camera and we’ll walk about and see what kind of picture taking problems we can find and maybe answer.

If you have specific picture taking problems then bring your camera and just maybe we can solve your problem.
