JPEG comment tag

Post by WarpEnterprises » Fri Nov 19, 2021 2:38 pm

The new "properties" is a great feature!
But I didn't find a way to load a JPEG comment. Is this not implemented or did I make a mistake?
Attached is a small sample file. The tag ("TEST") was written with Faststone image viewer and can be read with Xnview.

Everything 1.5.0.1286a adds support for JPEG comments (APP0 marker).

Am I missing something. Does this feature allow us to edit tags while in details mode. ? If so then where do I find it. Thank you.

The EXIF comment can be edited from right-clicking the jpg file and clicking Properties -> Details -> Comments

APP0 marker will override the EXIF comment and cannot be edited this way.

I think the user WarpEnterprises meant the following:

Here it would be helpful if one could
- mark the image in Everything AND then
- click on the properties one after the other ...
so that one can see in this window ("Select Property") whether there is a "field content", e.g. comment, description, etc. for this picture.

At the moment one have to display the columns from different topics, eg "Exif", "Picture", "Document" to be able to determine
whether field contents are available. This also means, however, that one may have to hide columns afterwords that are no longer needed.

Currently I see the problem that for 1 image only the following is available:
a) Properties -> Details -> Comments
    AND
b) JPG/JPEG Comment

Code: Select all

Name	  Type	    Canonical Name
Comment	  Metadata  Comment

I can already see the comment on the picture in the new preview (Everything 1.5.0.1288a (x64).
However, the comment was not shown in the column "Comment" after calling up the picture.

However, comments on Word documents are shown in the "Comment" column:
Document ...

Code: Select all

Name:	  Type:	     Canonical Name
Comment   Metadata   Comment
It should also be mentioned that the comment "TEST" is also displayed under the "Document" property in the preview.
Nothing is displayed in the "Comment" field.

Thereupon I have hidden the column "Comment" (Document)
and displayed it again as follows:
Exif ...

Code: Select all

Name:	  Type:	     Canonical Name
Comment   Metadata   Comment
Unfortunately, that didn't help, because the comment on the picture was not displayed.

So please check it out.
Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback tuska,

Are you by chance indexing the comment property under Tools -> Options -> Properties?

The preview will always gather properties from disk (not the index)

Yes, but not for pictures.
Only indexed property values are shown when you index the Comment property.
(in this case, Everything will not gather or display non-indexed Comment properties).

The Select Property -> Preview will always gather the property from disk. (never the index)

Please try including *.jpg in your comment property filter.
or fire up another instance without comment property indexing to check.
Everything should show the comment property value as TEST for this example image.

Side note: The EXIF comment will override the APP0 comment.

Thank you for this detailed information!

Unfortunately a mistake on my part to have overlooked it: :oops:

After indexing the file type JPG, the comment is now also displayed in the column "Comment".
