Aesthetic-Value Tag Name
« on: February 05, 2018, 06:24:52 PM »
Is there a designated field to record an "aesthetic value"?  Any recommendations?

I can't think of anything off hand.

What kind of data are you planing on saving?  Strings, lists?  Can you give an example?

Odds are you'll have to repurpose some other tag.
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.

It would be a relative score in a % between 0% to 100%. The higher the % the greater the aesthetic value. Hope that helps..

You could use XMP:Rating.

...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 ($).

Would that conflict if a "Star Rating" is applied as well?

Likely, yes.

So what is the environment for this?  Just your own personal images or are you dealing with images from a variety of sources?  Are you using a management program such as Lightroom?  If you are, do you need to be able to see the tag in that program?
