Hi

It would be helpful to me and perhaps others if the IPTC description could be shown when viewing photos.

Thanks really enjoy Emby and you have helped me a lot so I have signed up to Premiere.

Yeah, what Emby calls "Overview" in photos metadata, would sure be nice if there was a way in the client to overlay photos with button click of some sort while viewing. Yes, I know you can "edit metadata" in web interface and such but not speaking of that, just view the comments (er Overview). And original date as well (Emby says "Release Date")

I add comments ("Overview") in the photo metadata for some photos for memory sake and it would be nice to be able to see those. Emby correctly captures them.

If you have a some good photo files for testing that contain a range of iptc/exif/xmp metadata, then please zip them up and attach them here and I'll make sure Emby Server supports reading all of the embedded information.

Thanks !

I will do my best to get to this and get you some. I just got back from a couple weeks in the Virgin Islands and need to catch up on all sorts of things first!

Here's 3 photos (and an XMP sidecar). All of these photos have a title and a caption, when viewing photos, I like to see the title and caption overlaid or easily accessible at least. I picked one of each file type I use.

I also want to see this. I was using Plex (pretty much only for home photos and videos) and finally took the plunge with Emby and am pleased to see that it reads metadata! But yes, the only thing lacking, the only thing I need, is for Emby to display that metadata when viewing a photo. For example, I have scanned photos where as I'm scanning, I write a metadata caption of whatever is written on the back. Emby shows it in overview (and I can edit it there), but it won't display. I'd like the caption displayed, as well as the date that I add in the metadata (when the picture was taken).

We like to view home photos and video on our TV, and also share our home gallery with my in-laws who also like to view on their TV at their place. That would be my primary use for Emby (we stream movies and TV in a streaming app).
