I’m working on a Exiff/Iptc Metadata Plugin and have some problems concerning Character Encoding … it seems that all “Umlaute” and “Sonderzeichen” arrive as ? which basically means that the character is not known (wrong charset). Is there anything I could do to avoid this? I’m also not exactly sure what character encoding is used in the image data. but the images come from osx so i assume that they are encoded in utf-8!
