Image title extraction


Importing some pictures sometimes creates an image title based on EXIF data :
charset = Ascii {"info":{"gyro_stabilized":true,"initial_view_changed":false}}

instead of
for example.

This depends on the camera I use.
It's not really a problem, I mention this to get some more info about title extraction.

No problem if I import those pictures after removing EXIF data...

    The image file name is only used when no EXIF title is defined. The order of attempts is documentted here:

    As far as I understand the EXIF standard is not 100% fixed and more a recommendation. It has always been the case that camera vendors did "custom" things. Seems to me that probably some EXIF/IPTC values are not correctly set…

    Thank you for your answer.

    Just to be sure the values are what's wrong, you should take a look at the metadata in the image itself via an EXIF reader tool.

    Yes, exiftoolgui shows "charset = Ascii data... etc "
