Extracting IPTC not working in ImageMagick-6.3.0

Post by martinw17 »


I upgraded to ImageMagick-6.3.0-2 and since then, the identify command (with the format option) fails to return IPTC information.

For example, when run against an image that contains data for the IPTC field 'byline' the following returns nothing:
identify -format %[IPTC:2:080] iptc_byline.jpg

This seems to be the same for all the IPTC fields. It used to work fine (in earlier versions!)

We will have a fix for the IPTC problem by the end of day. Thanks.
