Hi Everyone,

Two days ago, I downloaded IrfanView which allows you to apply IPTC data to multiple files at the click of a button.

Yesterday I was playing with this program and uploading a single test image to BS, ScanStock, CS, FP and others to see if their websites will capture the IPTC info.

Anyway these websites manage to pull the keywords I created but not anything else.

So.. I got a question:

For those of you who use IrfanView and are familiar with it, which section of Irfanview's IPTC info do you put in the image tile information???

In the IPTC info dialogue box, IrfanView has multiple tabs... "Caption", "Keywords", "Categories", "Credits" and "Origin" .  Each of these tabs has multiple fields that you can populate with IPTC information.

Which tab and field do I use for Image Title??  If any of you can provide me with help on this matter, I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.

I don't enter IPTC data in IV (I use Exifer), but I edit images with it.

Caption is description
Caption writer is author
Headline is title

Hi madelaide,

Hmmm... that's interesting because I populated the Headline section in IrfanView but none of the sites read it as a title. 

Only the keywords were read correctly.

Is Exifer a free program?

Yes, it is only not updated anymore.  However, I have a problem with Exifer and IS, IS doesn't read my IPTC data.  They knwo about the problem, they just don't bother fixing it. 

You might ask Flemish, he uses IV intensively.

I never had problems with Irfanview, except with the title at BigStock which sometimes takes a previous version of the title.

Title = tab Origin, field Object name.
Description = tab Caption, field Caption.
"Headline" is not used on the main sites.
Keywords: use the newline delimiter: it works everywhere, included Flickr. Commas and spaces don't work well on some sites.

Watch out for Exifer... I had it corrupt photos, so make sure you keep a copy of your images. Yes it's free but apparently not updated any more. Irfanview is regularly updated and it has batch processing too (press T) with selected thumbs, add to fields and selectively change fields (check the Options tab).

Ifranview uses the base IPTC definition, and that might be corrupted as to keywords by Photoshop. You'll have to remember to keyword after all Photoshop is done.
