      Description

      When saving photos directly to my local hard disk I frequently take dozens using the same camera position but stepping through Windlight settings with each photo. It would be extraordinarily helpful if the Windlight sky setting for each photo were included either as some form of meta data in each saved photo, or even appended to each file name.

      This would allow photographers to keep track of the sky setting that was used when they took a photo enabling them to easily go back to that setting for follow up shoots.

      I've attached a mock up of the Phototools / Aids window with a couple of possible additions.

          Outstanding. Folks are often asking me weeks later which sky I used in a photo.

          Hi! I've wanted to write metadata to saved-to-disk snapshots for a while. I'm going to work on this. What other information do you think should be included? Avatar who took the snapshot, Location (Grid/Sim/Region), date, windlight setting, graphics level, viewer version are some options.

          A thought battered it's way in to my head this morning. I know that scripted devices and some of the new photo tools can save a camera position and rotation. I haven't checked the photo tools function but as I recall various LSL camera HUDs can save several exact camera positions and rotations per region.

          If that information could be embedded in the meta data, in a format that could be easily retrieved a user could pass it via a chat command to a simple script which could then reset the camera to that exact position and rotation.

          Oh nice! Can I amend my original suggestion above to include the ability to "export" the current camera and sky information in a format that would work with FIRE-8193?

          Giving it my typical 11 seconds of deep concentrated thought how about a check box which when checked automatically IMs the resident the formatted string containing the camera position, windlight, DOF, and other related information. If a comment field could be added the photo's name could be added to make it easier to cross reference the string to the image. The resident could then either save the string in a notecard or text file on their computer, or even pull it from the chat log if they've got it enabled.

          I would certainly like location information (like the EXIF data stored in RL photos) to be stored, if only as a comment in the SL photo.
