Find all files for which ExifTool has reported errors?You can use the Filter Panel for this purpose:1. Add a Value Filter2. Select the tag Extra\Error3. Select the Database Node in the Media & Folders View to bring all files in the database in scope (into the file window).Note: To set the Extra\Error tag for the value filter, open the tag selector dialog, switch to the Search all Tags tab and enter extra into the group box to find all Extra tags:[attachment deleted by admin]
Quote1. Always include the IMatch log file (see log file) from the session where you experienced problems.I contains very useful data, e.g. the precise error message from ExifTool/IMatch.
Quote2. IMatch Categories are not Keywords. Categories are never written to image metadata.3. If you mean keywords, the @Keywords category hierarchy you see is created from the actual keywords in your files (or database).See The @Keywords Category for all details.
Quote4. If ExifTool ran into an error while writing one of your files: This can happen. Sometimes metadata in files is corrupted and you notice it only when you have to update the metadata.5. To write back keywords, just mark them as modified in the Keyword Panel.This is explained in the help and there is even a dedicated "Did You Know?" in the The 'Did You Know?'' App app, which I recommend highly for new users.
QuoteIf the metadata in the file is messed up, you may need IMatch to force-reload it into the database by selecting the file and pressing Shift+Ctrl+F5 > Reload Metadata.
QuoteI'm not exactly sure what I should look at. And I don't know if IrfanView supports metadata more modern than legacy IPTC.Please show us the actual keywords in your file using a proper tool, like the IMatch Metadata Analyst or the output of the The ExifTool Command Processor.
QuoteWhen IMatch has written back the keywords correctly, they will be exactly the same as shown in the Keyword Panel.Differences may be caused by issues like out-of-sync keywords in your images and many other things. Use the Metadata Analyst to test the image properly and then use the green "Copy Results" button to copy and paste warnings and errors found in your file.
QuoteI don't know what mean your images don't show.Please do not link to images posted on external sites in your posts, if this is what you do.Use the attachments available here in the community only.
