MythGallery: retrieval of captions from EXIF header, and additional display of captions in slideshow

Reported by: herman@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythgallery Version:
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Attached patch adds three things to MythGallery:

  1. Retrieval of captions from the EXIF data of an image It looks for either USER_COMMENT or IMAGE_DESCRIPTION
  2. Display of these captions in iconview instead of filename
  3. Display of these captions on top of the image in slideshow mode (optional, configured by a new GUI setting)

As I don't have any images with "native" captions in them, I only tested with images in which an image description was inserted by the 'exif' tool from the libexif project. Seems to work just perfectly.

PS: this a reworked version of a patch previously posted to -dev, but this time with useage of EXIF data instead of an external command. Still think that version was ok, as thumbnails are also stored in the filesystem, and not in the EXIF header :-)
