    hi, I'm looking for an image editor in which I can add and edit comments in jpeg - I used to do this in winblows with irfanview.... I tried photoshop cs3 but there's all just funky iptc-fields and what not in the image information...

    Xee doesn't display them either, but Phoenix does, but you cannot edit / add jpeg comments.... any ideas for a good viewer that does it (ideally freeware)... or does someone know whether this can be done in something included in os10.5?
    thanks for your help!

    thanks for the tip, but nope, that doesn't do it either :(

    only one that does it I found so far is Gimp, but what a drag this whole x11 stuff is - and copy/paste of text from eg browser into gimp (image properties/comment) doesn't work :mad:... which makes it kinda useless for me....any ideas?

    or, as I'd rather not have to use geeky gimp, any other programs that can add/edit comments in jpg-files?

    no one any ideas?
    am I the only one wanting to add information to pics that is not proprietary?
    :confused:
    or does anyway know a forum where I could find graphic buffs that could help me?
