> EXIF support - EXIF preview image is gone when saving

Hi Peter,

many thanks for continuing the development of PMView for OS/2.
I've downloaded the new release and was surprised that the most important feature (for me) I missed so far is now implemented in almost exactly the way I was hoping for.
I'm talking about the EXIF support for JPGs from digital cameras.

Many programs only keep the EXIF data without adapting them to the changes you did to the image. I've seen that PMView will adapt the values (checked out the size and the orientation so far) according to my changes. GREAT !!!

But I also figured out that the preview image that is part of the EXIF data is gone when saving. Is there a way the recreate the preview out of the image data like for the thumbnails ?
If not, this would be a great enhancement. (So far I'm only aware of one tool that is able to do that, Exifer. But that's a Windows program and I'm working on OS/2 sad.gif )

Hi Peter!

One more note on EXIF and other MetaData:

1.) It would be nice if the user can modify the EXIF Data by himself.
Adding Keywords, Picture Description, GPS Data (I'm currently working on a Web Photoalbum to search for coordinates, make and model of camera,...), Name of the Person who edited the file,...

EXIF Software and Date/Time are not updated when using "Save as..." (look at the example below).

[Exif] Image Description - Communications
[Exif] Software - Adobe Photoshop 7.0
[Exif] Date/Time - 2002:07:19 13:28:10
[GPS] GPS Version ID - 2 2 2 2
[GPS] GPS Latitude Ref - N
[GPS] GPS Latitude - 48"51'28.200073
[GPS] GPS Longitude Ref - E
[GPS] GPS Longitude - 2"17'49.19998
[GPS] GPS Time-Stamp - 12:59:4 UTC
[GPS] GPS Map Datum - WGS84

2.) Maybe you can also add JPTC support.

[Iptc] Directory Version - 2

Maybe the Java Code will help you to get it supported.

First link currently down, but should be up again.

PS: I think you are still involved in the PMMail development, so also note the following stuff...

I hope there will be an updated version of PMMail/2 soon. smile.gif
There are severals things missing now (look at the forum " Updates for os/2 version?", where I magog posted them some time ago - e.g. Spamfilter, ISO 8859-15? [normal Latin 1 with added Euro Sign - currently not recognized --> annoying], updated HTML display, ASMTP,...).
