However, looking at my own Gwenview (4.11.5 on oS 13.1) I'm having
difficulty finding where you can even add comments. There is only the
Edit Metadata dialog which I've never looked at before. Is that what
you're referring to?

You have to display the left panel for the photo. The bottom half is a
largish area where I can write text. I now notice that it is labelled
"semantic information" :-/

There is a click to "edit" exif tags.

I knew this Comments box existed but it's disappeared from my 13.1 install. I just fired up Leap in a VM and there it shows up. I think that's because I unticked the Enable Nepomuk Semantic Desktop option in the System Settings on 13.1.

You can edit all the EXIF info within Gwenview by going to Plugins -> Images -> Edit All Metadata... assuming you have the KIPI plugins installed. However, there's a problem with the functionality. Since this dialog is a rather obscure option it doesn't have a shortcut assigned and so is cumbersome to launch for every image. I can't even find a way to assign a shortcut using Settings -> Configure Shortcuts...

I just had a look at ShowFoto, the image editing component of Digikam. Annoyingly that doesn't seem to have any functionality for editing Comments tags either. Even displaying them seems to be a black art. In some cases I can't make them show up even if I go into the settings and explicitly select them under the Metadata -> EXIF tab.

Alas it looks like the most common KDE tools fail on this one. A standalone utility might be the best way to go.
