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

I have loved watching all of this unfold! FWIW, I'm a hard-core
command-line guy and I keep my originals untouched and immediately
copy them to a parallel tree for stamping, editing, cropping, and
so on :-)

One other suggestion, since in your rundown of tools I don't think you
ever found one suitable all the way through...

What is the gwenview DB format? Can you parse it? If you like the tool,
go ahead and use it for "Stage 1", and then -- once you have comments for
all of your files -- move on to "Stage 2" and use a script to extract
the comments and apply them to the EXIF fields. Yes, that part is
[delightfully :-] CLI, but you get to do your work where you're most
comfortable.


HTH & HAND
