Subject: Re: + Camera Raw Feature Requests +


A followup to your post #152.
You stated ----
I would welcome a much richer toolset for reading and writing DNGs, going far beyond this issue. Obviously it would include comprehensive XMP manipulation. (The first thing I do with a folder-full of DNGs is apply my copyright template. But why wait until then? Why not do it at conversion time, which I do directly from the memory card?)

Doing something to ACR is limited. (For example, it would only apply to the latest ACR, not ACR 2.4). Doing something to DNGs is much more powerful. And it would perhaps convince the anti-Adobe conspiracy-theorists to embrace DNG and help bring a halt to the current farce.
I vote for a comprehensive XMP manipulation module (program) that is able to be hosted either by the DNG converter, ACR, or Bridge. There are occasions where I shoot with an older camera in JPEG. I need to manipulate the metadata for these images as well. If the manipulation is limited to the DNG converter or ACR, I would have to find another solution for these images.

There is a need to have a program that allows for comprehensive XMP manipulation -- Bridge 1.0 is a nice start but there are features such as drag and drop, mulitiple ACR options (as disucssed here), multi-level keywords that need to be considered. What do you think?
