4 tags for your collection:
Great! This is absolutely fabulous.
However, sofar, I've not included eg the Pixar tags on which I have little more then number and name, because of a lacking 'long' descriptions. One may argue that code and name and little or no detail is better then nothing at all. That might be true, and I might one day include the ones on which I have little more. But for the moment, I'm still trying to aim for more of a meaningfull description on each entry in the directory.
So, is there any chance of getting more of a full description part on these tags?
- 'Application string' may be pretty self-explanatory, allthough if there is any explanation as to what is the difference between this and the Software tag, that would be great.
- 'ScanJob' and 'Identification Number' really need more explanation. What is considered a ScanJob? What is this Identification number, what is identified, and why?
- If the 'Processing Characteristics' tag is really of very private use, I'd like to at least mention that fact, and if not, further details would be welcome.
For all of these tags, details like exact name of owner, and exact name of software writting them could be pretty usefull too.
