Metadata Viewing exiftool

#1 Post by Odamn-Ete » 23.02.2021, 01:58

Hey Marek,

thanks for incorporating exiftool into Quick View/ Viewer. I like the fact, that I can access the metadata from a large number of various file types now.

I have a question regarding activating and deactivating metadata viewing.

If an image file is being displayed in the viewer (one config for both viewers, opens quick view in other pane)

I can right click on the display of the viewer and receive a context menu, where I can activate/deactivate metadata display.

Image

If I am viewing any other type of file, this context menu is not presented. I have tried combinations of shift / Ctrl / Alt + right mouse click and the context menu doesn't change.
Is there any other method to toggle between viewing with and without metadata information?

Best regards,

Thanks Karol,

Can you please point me to where I can find "Show Exif/Metadata" in the View Menu?

Best Regards

You wrote about viewer/quick viewer.
In Viewer (F3) you can find in main menu View->Show Exif/Metadata.
In QuickViewer the View popup menu you can open with right click on the title bar of the QuickView.

Here is additional information on how the number of tags can be expanded in the multi rename dialog.

If in the viewer settings the path for exiftool program is defined
ViewerSettingsExiftoolTagName_en.png
ViewerSettingsExiftoolTagName_en.png (14.99 KiB) Viewed 5473 times

then the tags can be used for multirename:
MultirenameExif_en.png
In the popup menu are used some default tags.
If you want expand or change the list you can define the section [ExifToolTags] in the freecommander.mren.ini file.
The default tags are defined as :

Code: Select all

[ExifToolTags]
1=Artist
2=CreateDate
3=DateTimeOriginal
4=ModifyDate
5=ExposureTime
6=FNumber
7=FocalLength
8=ImageSize
9=ISO
10=LightValue
11=Make
12=Model
13=Orientation
The name of the tags you can see in viewer if you select for display "Tag name".
