Problem with JAlbum 10 - Title Source / ITPC Caption
Posted: 07-Oct-2011 09:24

Hi,
my Jalbum setting for Image Titel source is set to IPTC headline (Caption).
When Make Album is complete I noticed that the IPTC caption value did not appear
in Jalbum image title for some of my images.

Appreciate any help to troubleshoot.
Thanks
Bodo

Thanks david for jumping in.

It seems not a matter with the image itself but with the existing image in the Output folder specified in Jalbum settings.

Here are my steps:

1. Edit IPTC caption of an image in a different location
A copy of that particular image is allready in Jalbum image folder and its IPTC
caption is not set.
2. I copy the image file to Jalbums image folder
3. I click Make All button in Jalbums GUI
4. I check the image file first in Jalbums image folder and noticed that the IPTC captions
is set
5. I check the same file in Jalbums Output folder. The IPTC caption of the image is NOT
set.

Please see the image (from Jalbum image folder) attached.

Many thanks
Bodo

IPTC metadata is only copied to the scaled-down images created by jAlbum if the "Include photographic data in generatedcimages" checkbox is set in Settings>Advanced>metadata
(not required for the web pages, as the text is already extracted into the HTML).

Thanks jimberry,
I've set the following options,
however when I drag&drop an Image with IPTC caption on Jalbum
the Image Title is sometimes empty and its not there when I make the entire album.
It seems to work for some of my images but fails with others for whatever reasons.

I noticed that this happens mostly with images that excedes the default slide image size
of 1524x1524 (as specfied in Jalbum Image settings)

Jim or David need to provide the answer, but out of interest, what is the exact caption or headline? An example of one that did not show.

You also need to set "Foto-Datein in generierte Bilder aufnehmen"

Thanks for spotting this error. I've now fixed it (v10.1.1). Replace jAlbum's lib/jalbum-core.jar file with this one .
Also put the attached "External tool" inside jAlbum's "tools" folder and execute it when you've fired up jAlbum and opened the album project where you can't see the IPTC Headline title. The external tool strips the empty xmp title from the xmp section of jAlbum and thereby enabling jAlbum to import the existing correct "IPTC Headline" field again.

Thanks a lot David, it works now.

Is it possible to let the external tool to strip the empty xmp Description also from the xmp section of jAlbum because for some of my images the IPTC Description gets not added to the jalbum description when I make my album.

Again many thanks!
Bodo

Yes, I assume that, just edit the file and locate this line:
mgr.getXMPMeta().deleteProperty(XmpManager.dc_NS, "dc:title");
Now after it, add this line:
mgr.getXMPMeta().deleteProperty(XmpManager.dc_NS, "dc:description");
