Writing not writable tags.
« on: June 08, 2020, 10:33:52 AM »

I am trying to rewrite WriterName tag in jpg file. This tag belong to [Photoshop] group and it is not writable. How to change it? I can delete this with -Photoshop:all= command, but I cant give a new value to it.

How to rewrite this only tag?

ExifTool doesn't currently have the ability to write tags in this Photoshop record.
