find the latest verion of zText here

hi,

today i can provide an update for zText. the new version gives access to all exif data, now - e.g. ISO, Fnumber or exposure time can now be written on the image. additionally the version name (filename) is available, now.

the description how to access the data and the complete change-log is as follows:
  • full exif access introduced
  • as usual in zText the data-sysnonym is to be place in two '%'. the different available exif-tags are shown below. the prefix 'TIFFTAG' (EL, EL_TIFFTAG as well) may be skipped or not. the sysnonyms are also case-insensitive, now.
    example: %TIFFTAG_MAKE% = %MAKE% = %make%
  • if the name starts with a '/' after the first % the result is given back incerted as long as the result is a number. for most of the exifs does this not make sense, but it was introduce for especially one certain value - the exposure time. in the exif data the exposure time is stored as a rational number, e.g. 0.05 whereas 1/20 is commonly used in photographic scene. with using the '/' the returned value will be inverted internally.
    example:
    %EXPOSEURETIME% --> 0.05
    %/EXPOSEURETIME% --> 20
  • so it can be used as 1/20s with writing '1/%/EXPOSEURETIME%s' in zText.
    although it is not senseful for 'iso' or other numerical numbers it is possible with all exif data that give numerical values back
  • NOTE: the most of these tags may be empty - this will be displayed in the image with '%emtpyTag%'
  • available exif data:
    Code: Select all

Is there a way to get just the year the picture was shot?

Why not use %rights%?
If you set up the copyright string properly in cam that should do it...

use \n for wrapping to a new line.
e.g. 'hello\nworld'
will be
'hello
world'

Actually, some way to pass arguments (including locale) to strftime, or whatever function the library uses, would be great.

Maybe "/n" could be added to the Presets as "Next Line" or "New Line" or "Line Feed".

If there are more hash tags like this, maybe they can also be added to the Presets with meaningful text.

zText 2.1.0 Info-Popup freezes ASP

Postby maggus on Sat Feb 18, 2012 6:27 am

Hi tin.tin,

in general zText seems to work, but I notice some strange behaviour (at least on my OpenSuse 11.4, 32bit).

(1) The list of available fonts seems to alter within an ASP session. I started editing a foto, enabled zText and selected a font (Luxi Sans) ... started exporting this foto. Then I selected another foto and also enabled zText, wanted to select the same font, but "Luxi Sans" was not in the list (drop-down-box) anymore ?!?!? So I selected another font "XXX". Opening this foto in a new session in ASP then again had the "Luxi Sans" font available, but "XXX" was gone and replaced by "Courier".
Not sure if I can reproduce, but at least it looks strange.

(2) This is more important. Have you ever clicked the help/info button ("?") within zText ?
When I do so I get the popup-window with your infos and donate .... then I cklick close/Ok ... and then ASP is frozen (not taking any CPU, just idle) !
Prozess table (within SystemMonitor) still shows "zFrame 2.1.0" as window title ... but I do not have zFrame installed !
O.K., the text is not the real issue, but ASP needs to be killed afterwards.
In the attached ZIP you´ll find the AspLog as well as my SystemInfo.

cheers
Markus

hi maggus,

(1)...
i did not noticed that, yet - and i can't influence this. the combo box for choosing a certain font is a library element from Qt. i just use it :?

(2)...
on my winXP it behaves like intended. but i'll have a look to my code. normally this is implemented exactly like all the other plugins, too.
do you have the same issue with one of the others of zFrame, zShadow, ZPerspector, zChannelmixer? if yes which/which not?

thanks a lot!

I have seen some weird effects with zText where the tool was mostly empty and the UI elements only started to show up once I moved the mouse over them (on Linux).
So there might be some UI initialization thing that is a bit off.

Hi tin.tin,

(1) hmmm :?: maybe some Qt guru has some ideas ?
(2) YES, tried with zPerspector & zChannelMixer ... same issue of frozen ASP after info <?> popup.

Hi afx and tin.tin,
me to, I observed this strange "draw UI when mouse hovers" also once ... so far only for zText.
afx, you´re also a Linux-user ... can you also reproduce issue (2) ?
