BUT gwenview/dolphin do not write to the meatadata INSIDE the image.

I had forgotten about the "KDE semantic whatever" (database?)

Clearly I can not use gwenview to write the comments. Shotwell is a
candidate, but I'd prefer something similar to gwenview, because it runs
faster and doesn't "import" photos. A GUI tool, not CLI.

That's correct. You can also update the metadata using exif or exiftool.

You might note that gwenview and dolphin are KDE tools.

I'll have a look at gnome tools instead ;-)

There are probably hundreds of other programs that don't use the
gwenview database. If, for example, you move the photo to your tablet
or a 'electronic picture frame' then the gwenview or dolphin comment
won't go with it, whereas the exif will. That doesn't mean any specific
application on the tablet etc is capable of inspecting or displaying the
exif information.

That's the point, I want the comments in exif area, inside the jpegs.

The exif and the gwenview/dolphin database information are mutually
exclusive. I think you realise that.

Yes, of course. I was miffed because I did not notice that gwenview was
not writing to exif, but to the semantic area.
