Happy New Year
What do you make of this ?
I have been duplicating IPTC blocks in XMP using -tagsFromFile ......
We have been getting spurious PhotoShop CS2 errors about un-readable data being ignored.
It turns out that XMP only supports printable ASCII chars (0-127), the character
that was causing the problem was a £ (pound sign).
If you run "exiftool -XMP:Description='£' testfile.jpg" and then load testfile.jpg in PS you should
see a simpler version of the problem.
-tagsromFile is a handy solution and I do not want to have to limit myself to extracting
the IPTC values, re-encoding and then re-inserting.
Can you suggest anything ?
