Hello,
I'm facing an issue with image thumbnails. While copying metadata from one file to another, thumbnails are getting copied too.
I'm on Win 10 Home.

Like this:



Any solution?

I don't know how to do this in the GUI, but on the command line you can exclude the thumbnail from being copied by adding --thumbnailimage at the end of the command.

...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 ($).
