Improving Mindat.orgAuto changes to text in "Comments" during photo replacement upload

11th Sep 2019 02:37 BSTHarold Moritz Expert

When uploading photos, the comments section gets auto-loaded with whatever is in the photos' metadata under Properties/Details/Title, which in my case is typically
"Modified by CombineZP" (unless it hasnt been so modified and is blank, which is rare). That's annoying but OK for new uploads as I will just type over it. But I am uploading hundreds of higher resolution replacements of older photos and so to avoid the existing comments being overwritten I have to copy the text from there, upload the replacement photo, then repaste the text back into the comments section. Not the end of the world but things would go a lot faster if uploading a photo didnt automatically put new text into the comments section.

I cant see anyway to stop CombineZP from adding that text to the file properties, but I could always delete it from there , but that is just as time consuming.
