Re: [Tracker] Question about metadata in images (jpg and tiff)

Okay I ran some tests on some files I added metadata to and this is what I found:

For jpg and tiff you can tag them with Windows Explorer and add metadata for Title, Subject, Author, Keywords, and Comments.  I ran tracker against them and a tracker-extract revealed that none of these Windows Explorer tags get extracted

I also added metadata with Irfanview which allows the entry of IPTC metadata for jpg and got mixed results.  There are 18 different metadata items supported by IPTC for a jpg and tracker extracted 7 of them( copyright, keywords, byline, city, sublocation, state, country).

I also examined wmv video files and Windows Explorer can add metadata for title and comments.  Tracker extracted title, but not comments.

I am attaching a photo that has a complete set of Windows Explorer and Irfanview added metadata if anyone wants it.  All the metadata entries are elements in the periodic table(easier to see them that way)
