Comparison of metadata fields
« on: June 16, 2021, 01:36:40 PM »
I often need comparison of metadata fields between two or more images. This feature is not available in IMatch and I think it would be nice to have it.

Ger's and Markus' apps in this thread are a good starting point:

As soon as metadata is written back, Beyond Compare does a good job to compare it.

+1.  Even better if you could also use this to compare metadata of a single image, before and after write-back.

(Will help a lot when troubleshooting: why is one image behaving different than another.)

I will put this onto the IMatch 2022/2023 feature set to evaluate.
Doing this right and flexible will take some work.

IMatch 2022/2023 ships with a new powerful app named Compare Metadata.

This app makes it super-easy to visually compare metadata of up to four (!) files side-by-side, including highlighting of changes, single-click metadata synchronization/unification and more.
