Re: [opensuse] Writing coments on photos problem - yes, again! O:-)

Yes, yes, yes! And how is it with that interoperability then? Metadata inside
files are the most portable and easily managed.

The *thing* is, writing exif data to jpg/png/tif/... is not *usually*
distructive where writing after-the-fact to a raw (original) image may be
and may not be noticed immediately. So non-destructive editing of raw
files usually employes a *side-car* file or a database where the edits are
recorded and applied to the output file, jpg/png/tif/...

So set your meta-data in your camera to be added to the files the camera
outputs and maintain pristine originals and do as you please to

But to maintain a catalogue of your photos and accompanying side-car files
requires an application such as darktable or digikam or photoshop or ...
and you may become locked to a particular operating system. All about

Still, "all about choices" :)
