Re: [OCLUG-Tech] Viewing jpg images with comments

I've been trying a number of viewers (more than I care to name!).

It seems that mapivi and the libjpeg-progs (rdjpgcom and wrjpgcom)
put the "comment" somewhere different from geeqie and pix and ....

Gimp and Irfanview are happy to show the comments I put in, but the
interface isn't set up for browsing the image + comments quickly.

In the next few days I'll try to set up a little review and
put it on the oclug wiki to provide a focus. Otherwise one can get
a lot of unnecessary back and forth. In part it seems jpeg files
can have information in lots of different pockets, and different
software uses different locations.

FWIW, I've found a number of review items on the net are rather
optimistic about the capabilities of some of the software. After I
installed some, I could not find some features claimed for some

Best, JN
