News (well some of them):
  • Now reads metadata from several popular file formats, not just JPEG images
  • New importer to import metadata from various database backed photo management systems (see Add->From database file)

I have tried importing metadata from a CSV file using manual field mapping but nothing is being processed. I have mapped the CSV

Name,Title,Comment
to File name, Title, Description. Then I added a few rows of data with the Name field matching the filename, as shown in the current folder, followed by a title and comment field. Each line is terminated with a newline character.

You need to put the images to be imported in the same folder as the .csv file you refer to or in a sub folder thereof.

What are the two presets, PhotoSheetPano and Sellerdeck?

Those are two software packages to manage images that jAlbum has ready-made mappings for. We can add more presets later. Just bring the mappings to me.

Looks like some code isn't interpreting UTF-8 encoded data properly. What API are you using to grab the copyright? (I can't reproduce).

This one is especially strange. It seems to show up only on a Windows platform - on macOS, it's fine. And it appears to be a problem only with EXIF info. I just wrote some IPTC info with diacriticals, and had no errors. I don't have a tool for writing EXIF info, and haven't been able to find one (it's a rare beast, it would seem), so I can test only with André's image file.

When it comes to extracting the metadata, my skins aren't doing anything fancy. For the EXIF Copyright field in André's image, it's basically just:
result = meta.get("Copyright");

What you see above is the strExif array of EXIF data made with the Slide Show 4 skin in file slidePage.js
See for instance my jAlbum14 Beerze test album. Click on a thumbnail to see the EXIF data or open file http://andrewolff.jalbum.net/Vecht_Beerze/slidePage.js

See here for the same album generated with jAlbum version 13.
You see here also the comments from the EXIF data in the pictures, compare that with the jAlbum 14 version where these comments are missing.

Thanks for reporting. This is due to us using an updated version of metadata-extractor. I've passed a bug report to https://github.com/drewnoakes/metadata-extractor/issues/270 now.

I think the EXIF metadata in André's file is mangled.

I finally found an up-to-date, usable, free metadata editor (Exif Pilot) that allows me to get at those EXIF fields. I put an EXIF Copyright with diacriticals on an image, and the List metadata routine has no problem with it, and it displays properly in the skin (see screenshot).

Then I opened André's image file in that application, and this is what it sees (second screenshot).

Edit: And attached is the file into which I wrote the EXIF Copyright info.

Well jAlbum 13, see here and the Windows 10 Explorer can read it without problems (see enclosed screenshot)..

And this jAlbum 14 Haarlem album has metadata exported from Lightroom 6.

There is no mangling of EXIF metadata in André's file, as displayed by exiftool, see attached list.
