Metadata for Person Shown in Image

    I support the proposal form Vincent. I would be very helpful, when the standard field is usable. When I tag photos in other software (i.e. with GPS-data, Location names) they are taken by CaptureOne. But I know no other software using Getty-Fields for personal names.

    +1 ... this would be very helpful, since Photo Mechanic, or other apps using facial recognition mostly use the Person Shown field.

    Link in the top post is dead.

    The workaround is to include that name in the filename.

    Thanks - I guess you could put people names in file name, or almost any metadata field as a workaround, but better option would be to allow use of Person shown field for the intended purpose. I use my filenames in another way so this is not a reasonable option for example

    This page covers all things IPTC.

    https://iptc.org/std/photometadata/specification/IPTC-PhotoMetadata

    I have moved this post to the Improve Capture One Pro topic area.

    Vincent says "I saw the Getty-specific "personality" field, but this requires me to alter the field later in Photo Mechanic."

    Why? This field can be used/edited in C1.

    Walter Rowe thank you for sharing. Are any of these IPTC standard fields usable for tagging people in Capture One? I tried to search but was unable to find a match.

    The IPTC Extensions were updated in 2023. I don't think CO supports all of the current IPTC standards.

    Brendan you're right. I also tried the search after I marked 4 images in the "personality" field. Like so very often, the search is rather useless in C1. But if you create an intelligent album and use the field "personality" there, it actually shows the images with the person in. Also, when exporting the RAWs and the personality field is edited correctly, you can create a filename like [date]-[filename]-[person-name]. This was a surprise to me.

    The handling is cumbersome, but at least there is a way.

    JoJu .. I wondered how [Person Name] would behave when there are multiple people named in the Getty Personality fields. Capture One concatenates them together with a semicolon separator. It would be nice if we could specify the separator.

    Good question. Looks like a job for a rename routine afterwards? At least the semicolon is there...

    Question is also, what happens with this "personality" tag if someone takes the trouble to identify large groups? I had the face ID feature Apple Aperture already 10 years ago, but I never used the name token to generate filenames. To me it was helpful to find people in my library. But for the tethered shooting task of then thread opener it's only one person/image.
