What Features you want in GIMP (Crowdfunding)

I'm not quite sure how this mailing list works, so I'm sending it to this address, hoping someone will put it in the right place. And perhaps clarify for me how I can respond to a particular topic/mail.

I'm interested in this crowdfunding idea for Gimp to get some things done.

As a professional photographer and only working with Linux software, there is one (and perhaps only) thing I really deeply miss at the moment and on a daily basis in Gimp: full support for keeping, viewing and perhaps editing of metadata (exif/IPTC/XMP).

As a starting point it would be great if Gimp didn't wipe out all of the metadata allready present in an image (added by another program) after editing and saving it again. But even better would be if there was some kind of function equal to the Photoshop browser where one can select several images and edit or add metadata, preferably IPTC/XMP.

If there are more people interested in this feature (and I'm sure there are), it would be great if this could be added as a feature for crowdfunding, because it doesn't seem to have priority with the developers.

Met vriendelijke groet,

It has on and off activity:

I can't comment on the other part of your email, because I don't understand what you are proposing, exactly :) People have tons of ideas for crowdfunding, this is not the problem :) Finding developers -- now that the missing thing.

Or, if you have Thunderbird, use "Reply List"

You forgot to mention that the quoted copy of the original message should be edited to remove any parts that aren't relevant to the response.

Cheers!
