Thread: How does Mezzmo use metadata ?

    Default How does Mezzmo use metadata ?

    Hi,

    Is there a list somewhere of what metadata Mezzmo uses in different circumstances ?

    For example, which fields are used for the date of a photo (and if more than one is present, what takes priority) ?

    I'm not too concerned about video, mainly pictures and music (bigger collections).

    I have my photos (mostly) organised using PSE8. This is pretty cavalier regarding metadata handling and I'd like to use a 3rd party tool to sort them all out. I only want to do this once so it'd be good to understand how Mezzmo uses the metadata. Simlilarly for music.


    Rgds,
    Geoff

    Hi Geoff,

    There's no "official" list of tags that Mezzmo reads in, but I can tell which tags we read in if you can give me a list of information you're interested in (e.g. date, etc...) - or I can post everything

    Dennis,
    My main interest at the moment is for photos. Music tags seem pretty much under control and I don't have a huge video collection yet.

    For photos the main areas of interest are :-

    Date and Time
    IPTC Keywords

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    Date and time are read first from EXIF and then IPTC (if not found), the order is DateTime, DateTimeCreated, DateTimeOriginal. The only other IPTC tags that are read are Author and Caption.

    Thanks Dennis. It seems that using Photoshop Elements organiser most of my photos are indexed on DateTimeOriginal. This isn't a fault in Mezzmo, just a nuisance (BTW, MS Media Player seems to display my photos in date order - must use DateTimeOriginal).

    Regarding keywords, I think this is an important missing feature from Mezzmo. It'd be nice if they were exposed. Again, MS MediaPlayer, allows this. I've seen requests for keyword access for video too.

    Anyway thanks for the info.

    Yes, we'll be adding keywords to photos soon. I'll re-check the order of tags as well and perhaps move DateTimeOriginal higher in priority list, as it seems to make sense.
