Summary: Make it possible to write/read unicode (or UTF-8) in
Platform: Ubuntu Packages
AssignedTo: digikam-devel kde org
ReportedBy: Johan.Eneland telia com
Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
In MaPiVi (http://mapivi.sourceforge.net/mapivi.shtml) it is possible to add non ascii-characters
(for ex åäöÅÄÖ), and it is still right characters when open IPTC for editing again.
So it is proven that at least the Swedish caracters can be written and read to/from a jpeg-file without being changed.
I also tested:
Linux> exiv2 -pi testIPTC.jpg # with the terminal character encoding=ISO-8859-1 (Western)
which gave correct Swedish characters.
(Probably the encoding when written was the same (ISO-8859-1) I guess. )
It would be greate if it was unicode at both write and read.
If doing man exif2 unicode is mentioned so it is probably possible to use it.
Linux> man exif2 => .... "The format of Exif Comment values includes an optional charset specifica‐
tion at the beginning: [charset=Ascii|Jis|Unicode|Undefined ]comment"...
