How to populate "comments" property of jpg files?

I have PSE 6 and am trying to determine if it's worth upgrading to PSE 9.  I mostly use PSE for the Organizer feature.  I use it to apply tags to jpg files.  I noticed that jpg files also have a "Comments" property that is exposed in Windows Vista and Windows 7 (along with the assigned tags).  I see that PSE can store "Notes" for a jpg but this information doesn't appear to be stored in the Comments property or in any other exposed property.
Is there a way to populated the Comments property of the jpg?  Is there anyway to see the Notes property in the jpg or is that text just stored in the catalog?
I haven't been able to find any additional functionality in PSE 9 over PSE 6 as it relates to the Organizer feature.  Am I missing something significant?

Just in the catalog.
The Notes and the Comments values are stored in different sections of the image's metadata.  Windows Explorer reads certain sections, PSE Organizer reads other sections, as well as using its own database for other data such as Notes.

  • View/Manipulate the Comments property of a file?

    When you view a directory in windows expolorer, or view the properties of a file, one of the properties is called "Comments". If you right click on a file, you can modify the value for this property.
    Is there a way that I can manipulate this property using CFFILE?
    I am still on CF8 if that makes a difference.

    It is kind of convoluted, but I want my end users to upload documents into a directory. That same directory needs to be indexed by another server on the network, to present the list of files in that directory to end users of THAT system. That system is ancient, and nobody wants to put forth the effort to upgrade it to the 21st century. As a result it shows the files in the directory in the order indicated by the DateLastModified property, but that is not necessarilly the date of the document itself. It is the date that the document was UPLOADED using my system. I was hoping to be able to populate the Comments property at the time of the upload, so this other system can read that field and present the documents in descending order that way.
    I know this explanation is going to bring up a bunch of "what ifs" but suffice to say they are NOT going to change their system to a database approach regardless of how logical we make it sound. Sorting on the Comments field was my last stab at a compromise.

  • How to populate list component via xml file?

    There is a TextArea component that should show the name and
    the description of the item selected in the list component. But I
    dont know how to populate list with external XML and what should be
    the coding in flash as well as what should be written in the XML.
    Please help.

    Here's an xml file listing a couple of brother comedy teams:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    Open a new .fla and save it in the same folder as the .xml
    file. Place a List Component on the Stage and name it (in this
    case, "comicTeams_list"). In the first frame write the following
    //create XML object and load external xml file
    var broList:XML = new XML();
    broList.ignoreWhite = true;
    broList.onLoad = processList; // this is a function that will
    be written below
    function processList(success:Boolean):Void{
    trace("Load failure");
    function loadList():Void{
    var broName:String;
    var listEntries =
    for(var i:Number = 0;i<listEntries;i++){
    broName =
    //to make something happen when you click on a name in the
    List, create a Listener and function
    var broListListener:Object = new Object();
    broListListener.change = someAction; //"someAction" is a
    function to be written shortly
    //add the Listener to the List
    comicTeams_list.addEventListener("change", broListListener);
    function someAction(evtObj:Object):Void{
    var pickedBrother:String =;
    //write actions here, referencing pickedBrother variable
    The names of the Marx Brothers will appear in the box.
    This is written in AS2. When you post a question, it's a good
    idea include which version of ActionScript you're using.

  • How to read doc/docx/pdf/jpg files in objective-c?

    Hi am new to  objective-c,here want to read the files from the directory i know how to read the text file but what i need is to read the doc/docx/pdf/jpg files to read,i don't know how to read these files in objective-c if anyone knows about this please help me,
    thanks in advance.

    The same way. You will get a load of binary idata, and you have to handle that yourself. .. What, are you expecting libraries to read and somehow convert a .docx document to your taste? You need to look up what 'file format' means.
    (Oh alright, there /may/ be a standardized way in OS X to read a jpg and convert it into something OS X can use without you having to know the specifics.)

  • How to keyword both NEF and JPG files?

    I use a Nikon D300 and shoot NEF+JPG. I ingest the files to my hard drive using Downloader Pro and then import them into Lightroom. Lightroom apparently "stacks" the NEF and JPG files together, and the thumbnail is shown as filename.NEF+JPG. When I keyword the files, the keywords are applied only to the XMP sidecar to the NEF file, and not to the JPG files.
    While I guess this "NEF+JPG" is called a stack, this appears to be some kind of special stack, as I cannot unstack the images and keyword them separately. Selecting "Stacking->Expand all stacks" does nothing. "Stacking->Unstack" is disabled.
    How can I get the keywords applied to the JPG files as well as to the NEF/XMP files?

    OK, I found that option and will try it.
    What's the best way of recovering the directories I have already imported with NEF+JPG files? I presume I could delete those directories from the LR database and import them again. (I have enabled the option always to write to XMP.)
    That would, I hope, give me both NEF and JPG files showing up in LR. Is there an easy way to copy the keywording from each NEF to the corresponding JPG file?

  • How to improve the resolution of jpg files in a pdf created from html

    I have a document in html that I need to convert to pdf. If I open the html in acrobat, the images look fine, almost the same as if I open the file in a browser. If I do "create pdf from web page", the jpg files imbedded in the html look terrible in the resulting pdf. Where can I adjust the resolution settings so that the jpg images look better in the pdf?
    I need to use "create pdf from web page" because I need access to the options to change the page size, margins, and header/footer, which I can't seem to find when I just open an html file and save as pdf, etc.

    Do you have a particular URL that we can look at to see where the problem might be? As far as adusting margins and such from your browser, those would be in the browser print settings to provide that option. You also would need to check possibly to use the Print or Press settings file to get better graphic resolution. The settings file selection may also be important if you use PDF Maker in one of the browsers that use PDF Maker.

  • How to ignore comments in a CSV file

    Here's what my CSV file looks like
    #Comment 1
    #Comment 2
    #Comment 3
    I'm reading in this file. How can I ignore all the comment lines? I can code it to ignore all lines begin with # but I thought this feature is built into the language already. Maybe I'm using a wrong class. I'm using Scanner right now and it reads in all the comments as well.
    Scanner sc = new Scanner(new File("test.txt")).useDelimiter(",");
    while (sc.hasNext()) {

    It's not built into the language. Your best bet is probably to put the CSV-Reading logic into its own class.
    Or find one of the thousands of classes that already implement such a thing.

  • How to select at once many jpg files for attachments of an email?

    With Window Explorer, I could select (using Shift) a series of many jpg or doc files as attachments with an email, but I couldn't with FireFox.
    I had to select one by one, which is very cumbersome!
    Is it possible with FireFox?

    Added tips from Tip Merchant ($200 consulation fee)
    - on mac - command/ numeric keypad Enter turns the path into a selection. Option delete then fills.
    - an action can be setup to bring up Fill Path from the Path panel menu. Just pressing enter fills with FG color
    These are ways to avoid he paths panel altogether. Best way may be to use the TINY fill path icon in that panel as was pointed out by John

  • How to populate pdf metadata "Subject" through "File - File Info"?

    I am looking for a way to include metadata for the "Subject" of the publication through the file information settings.
    When I include the title and author information, on a pdf export opened in Adobe Acrobat those two fields are filled in, however I can't seem to find a field for filling in the "Subject" that is in the document properties through Adobe Acrobat.
    Is there a way to add this metadata through the file information window? Or is it something that would have to be manually entered in the metadata file?
    These are more internal "Subjects" so the IPTC subject codes don't work, and they don't fill in this area of the metadata anyway.
    Hopefully the question makes sense, thanks in advance for your help!
    Kristin Crawford

    One of the quirks in working with XMP metadata is that the names for the various categories of information appear to change between InDesign and Acrobat.  Thus if you put text in ID's "Description" it will show up in the "Subject" in Acrobat.  Note that Tomaxxi offers a free panel for IDCS5-6 that can makes these categories easier to access.
    As you already know, IPTC adds many more categories, and XMP's extensibility means you can add your own, or others Adobe does not include.

  • Uploading 300 dpi jpg file to CD

    Can anyone give me the correct steps I would take to:
    1.     Make sure my photo is 300 dpi (one will be 7" x 7")  other will be 5 x 7" and how to export it that way
    2.     How  change the title of my jpg file before putting it on the CD.
    I am worried about changing the name in aperture and then not finding the master.....   I am trying to enter a contest.  Thank you in advance for any help in this regard!

    Hi Joanna,
    A few things...
    I see you posted a thread a few days ago about exporting 300dpi, follow those steps for your first question.
    For your second question, refer to the Aperture Manual pg 660.
    You could also swing by any Apple Store and see if someone there can help you out.

  • I am suddenly having a problem when trying to open a .tif file in Adobe bridge. The picture opens in firefox. It never did this before. How do I get my .tif and .jpg files to open in bridge?

  • How can I quickly view pdf files like I can do with Windows Picture and Fax viewer for jpg files?

    How can I quickly view pdf files like I can do with Windows Picture and Fax viewer for jpg files? I need to look at several thousand PDF files. It takes too long to open each one individually. The only thing I could think of is combining them into large groups and then using the Navigation index. But I like the way windows Picture and Fax Viewer does it because you can keep the files separate. Combining PDFs causes loss of individual file names. That would be a problem since I do need to have the individual file names.

    Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is a DLL and is started via a rundll32.exe call and can't be set as an application to handle images in Firefox 3 and later versions.
    Try to set Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as the default viewer in Windows, then it should be listed automatically in the Mozilla Firefox Browse dialog.
