Summary0000759: Incorrect IPTC Caption written back
DescriptionI just installed GeoSetter 3.4.16 and was testing it out. One bug that I've noted is that on some images it replaces the Caption/Comment field with "OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA" even though there is an existing caption as shown by PhotoShop and other programs. When the file gets written, this incorrect caption replaces the existing one.

In this case the image was taken by an Olympus camera that I rarely use and didn't have a valid date set, but other images taken at the same time show the correct Caption. I've attached a copy of one image that has this behavior.
TagsNo tags attached.

I made the mistake of using GeoSetter on another set of images created by the Olympus C8080 and it once again overwrote the existing IPTC Captions. I also noted that it deleted several keywords that I had assigned to the images. Lots of hours of work lost.
