Full Version: Writing IPTC metadata to jpg?

Hello, bit of a newbie here.

I am trying to add keyword metadata in GIMP 2.10 for microstock work. I've found the metadata menu, added description and keywords etc in the appropriate boxes - but when i export to jpg it doesn't seem to be there.

If i open the file using irfanview and check the IPTC, there's nothing there. Shutterstock has picked up the title but nothing else (picks up the keywords I add with irfanview though); 123RF manages to find the keywords but not title or description.

Am I doing something wrong or is it just the quirks of various sites and/or programs? Any suggestions for a foolproof method?!

Thanks!
I should add I'm working on a Windows 10 laptop.
