Metadata for analog images
« on: May 24, 2020, 07:14:06 AM »
Please let de say that I’m a analog photographer without a lot of IT/exiftool knowledge.

I can provide my tif files with enough metadata, like camera, lens etc.  But I was wondering is it possible to add:
Film brand
Developer brand
Developer time
In a way I can search these values in Lightroom, I think not but you never know.
Now I’m adding all of this in a small database.

There isn't a specific place for these tags.  Your best bet would be to either include them in the Description or create a hierarchy and store it in HierarchicalSubject.
Troubleshooting hints:
* When posting, include your OS, Exiftool version, and type of file you're processing (MP4, JPG, etc).
* Double all percent signs (%) in a Windows batch file.
* If your GPS coords are negative, make sure and set the GpsLatitudeRef and GpsLongitudeRef tags correctly.
