"Microsoft_Subject" Tag Transfer


Recommended Posts

If I have content in the "Microsft_Subject" tag it does not seem to get transferred to the "Description" tag in Daminion when I add the file unless the file also has content in the "Microsoft_Title" tag.


Is this the way it is supposed to work? Seems a bit odd to me. Thanks.

Could you please send us a sample image?

I've attached a composite screen image that shows the issue for two different files. It behaves this way for all the jpeg files that I have tested. It is not file specific so I have not included the files. You may have them if you need them. Just let me know. Mardon

Mardon, thanks for the image. Check the image metadata by ExifTool after changing it's properties by Windows Explorer (via "Actions > Show All Metadata").


You can see that Explorer in Windows Vista and 7* writes the Title tag into:

  • XMP Title
  • XMP Description
  • EXIF Image Description
  • EXIF XP Title


* The Explorer in Windows XP acts a bit differently.


And Daminion uses XMP Description field as a source for its Description tag. And XMP Title as a source for its Title tag. This is why you see the same Title in both Title and Description tags in Daminion.


Daminion doesn't import EXIF XP Subject.
