The comments stored in the image are shown at the bottom of the Main View window. Select 'Edit Comments...' from the 'Edit' menu to add or edit the comments. The same comment can be applied to all images in the directory by clicking on the 'Apply to all' button in the 'Edit Comments' dialog. In thumbnail mode the comment is applied to the selected images.
Tokens can be used to add information from the shooting data or IPTC data to a comment e.g. use @time@ to insert the time the image was token, @iso@ for the ISO setting, @model@ for the camera model name, @IPTC_caption@ for the IPTC caption. This is particularly useful if you need to add information from the shooting data to a batch of images. The tokens are the same as used for HTML generation.
Note: To add data to an existing comment use @caption@ to copy the existing comment e.g. to prefix existing comments with the time you could use "@time@: @caption@".
The default behavior is for BreezeBrowser Pro to use the EXIF UserComment tag to store comments, but there is also an option to use the IPTC caption instead. This has the advantage that comments can be added to any JPEG, TIFF or Canon raw file and are not limited to 256 characters. To select IPTC captions in preference to EXIF comments see preference settings.
