Solved -  Questions about picture category, listitem etc...
#1
Goodmorning,
i have a couple of questions about Picture Category and how to manage it:
There's an ListItem in order to get the Picture File Date?
Tried with ListItem.PictureDatetime But obviously not every image/picture have the date encoded inside.
Still searching on the skinning manual and infolabels but i can't find out what actually works with pictures.

And another question is: is there a possible way to show with a ListItem the original image? I tried by using Thumb but the quality, obviously, is too low to make a nice preview of the image so i wonder if there's a way to show the original image without launching the slideshow.

Thank you in advance for any suggestion
Best Regards

Kodi can only show the TAG's the picture actualy have. You may try to cross chec with another software (picasa on windows as a example).

guess best practice here is to show the Picture right from the Picture Folder via: <texture>$INFO[ListItem.FileNameAndPath]</texture>


EDIT:
if ur not on Windows u might wanna give this tool a try, to "dive" a bit in to EXIF Data.

 Thank You a Lot!
Your suggestion about using the infolabel as texture is a very cleaver way to solve the problem!
