I agree it is a little awkward but it will be improved soon :-)
Amen to that! Looking forward to it!
And thanks for the tip plg. Will come in handy!
And if you want Piwigo to use your IPTC keywords to fill tags, in your include/config_local.inc.php, add:
<?php $conf['use_iptc'] = true; ?>
When you will add a photo with pLoader, there will be an automatic search in your IPTC tags to fill photo properties.
I don't think pLoader removes IPTC, it just ignore them. If your IPTC mapping is defined in Piwigo, you should get your metadata even if they are not displayed in pLoader. I agree it is a little awkward but it will be improved soon :-)
I don't want to be annoying, but "bump bump"..
pLoader still ignores my images ITCP information.
Am I the only one with this problem?
Hi. I have been trying to get this working all day now.
It is very important for me that keywords follow my images from viewNX/Lightroom/Picasa to piwigo.
They don't though.. I have installed piwigo 2.0.9 on my server. Set it up nicely to work the way I want.
Downloaded pLoader 1.5 and run it and imported pictures in to it.
Already then I can see I am going to have problems.
The tag area of pLoader is blank. I know I have tags, I can even see them in Windows (windows 7).
So I hope it is just a bug and continue with my upload.
But, I can not see any tags on my site after upload either. And I can not search for any tags.. :(
When i go to the Highrez version of the images on my server, again I can read the IPTC info.
Tried following the advice from my administrator page just to see what happens (advice is on bottom of post) but even then I got the response:
Informations are read from sample.jpg
no IPTC information
EXIF Fields in sample.jpg
New advice about $conf['show_iptc_mapping']
Show IPTC Data from your picture:
1 - Copy one of your jpg pictures (a public one) in ./tools/
2 - Rename it as sample.jpg.
3 - Run ./tools/metadata.php
4 - Analyse results to determine which IPTC fields could be useful for your visitors.
Beginners would prefer to keep $conf['show_iptc'] = false,
Advanced users would take care of $lang values and impacts on templates.
