Queston 1: Is there a way to do this in either the module or in the core?
All I want to do is to give individual photographers credit for their photos. I have the author module installed, and in the advanced settings area, I have it setup to display the EXIF "Artist" field as the value for the "credit" setting. That works fine for those photographers who have their name in the artist field.
However, for those who don't, I want to be able to be able to select either individual photos, an album, or a subset of an album and be able to enter the Photographer's name as the fallback data in the event that the EXIF artist field is empty.
Question 2: Why isn't my workaround working?
Not finding the answer to #1 yet, I tried a workaround, which was to edit the Artist Field locally in a file, then ftp the modified file to replace the old one into the var/albums/albumname directory. However, the change is not shown in the album, and is still displaying as if there is no Artist value in the EXIF file. Why isn't the change showing up?
