Exiftool by itself, no.  But there are a variety of ways you could script something to do that.
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.

ok,

it's possible,
but I don't  have the skills to do that.  ( I am a documentary photographer  not a software developer)

I look for skills and/or a small program existing.
Thank you

Cela est possible,
Mais je n'ai pas les compétences pour le faire. ( je suis un photographe documentaire, pas développeur informatique)
Je vais chercher des compétences et/ou un petit logiciel pour faire cela.
Merci

Are you talking about setting XMP:Identifier to the name of the file?

If so, the command is:  exiftool "-xmp:identifier<filename" DIR

- Phil
...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).

hello,
I use exiftoolgui. (I can learn to work from command line)

In the "workspace manager" I am created  /identifier±=-xmp:identifier^identifiant image/
(the Name tag or Title tag are not the identifying image)
(The tag "Identifier"= image name, the name-identifier is exclusive, absolutely unique)
For me, the constitution of this identifying (ID) is very important.


I can  manually copy (Ctrl C/V) the image name as the tag "identifier".
This work is painful. It can generate fatal copy errors.

Question :
How to automatically copy the image name in the tag ' identifier ' ?

Thank you 

Greetings


J'utilise exiftoolgui.
Dans le "wokspace manager" j'ai créé /xmp:identifier.
je peux copier manuellement le nom de l'image dans la balise "identifier". Identifier = le nom de l'image. Ce nom , cet identifiant est impérativement unique .
Ce travail de copie est pénible et peux générer des erreurs fatales.
Question /
Comment copier automatiquement les noms des images dans la balise xmp:identifer ?

I'm sorry, but you lost me.  I can't help with how to do this in ExifToolGUI.
