Hi HP,
My problem is that I have used Imagemagick to convert my original fpx images from an old Kodak camera to jpg images but the metadata does not copy or at least I have not been able to enable this.  I can copy over the metadata fromthe fpx image to the jpg converted image using exiftool, which works well and gives me what I need but I was hoping I could get all I needed in the one step.  Meanwhile it was great to see the old test picture now with correct date on the thumbnail.
Thanks for your reply.
Still working on it
