Exif data

Anders Lund
Hi,

I marked in digikam settings->metadata->behavior: Tags, Image Title and
Description, to be written to meta data.

However, when using perl Image::ExifTool, those data does not appear,
even after I ask digikam explicitly to write metadata to file.

The file is a jpeg (though it would be smart to put the data into the
RAW file).

What is wrong?

If I use the metadata editor to do this, it works, but that is very,
very cumbersome! Shouldn't digikam do it automatically???

I need this for autoprocessing images this way:

I take pictures a sail racing events. Each boat have a bow number,
which is most often in the photo. I put this bow number in the image
description, like "B27", and then run a script that uses a small
database to fine the name, nationality and sail number of the boat.

This is then fed back into the image description, and I generate a
small image with a text and some logo, and puts it in the bottom of the
photo, all using imageMagick.

But it will not work if there is no way of getting digikam to put the
first bit of information into the image :(

Kindly,
Anders
