I have been trying for hours to write the iptc data below to my image, the closest to success I have gotten was getting it in plain text into the image file.


I have tried the following commands...

convert -verbose -profile iptc:image.iptc.jpg image.jpg image.iptc.jpg
convert identify -verbose +profile image.iptc.txt image.jpg image.iptc.jpg
convert identify -verbose -profile image.iptc.txt image.jpg image.iptc.jpg
convert identify -verbose -profile iptc:image.iptc.txt image.jpg image.iptc.jpg
convert identify -verbose -profile iptctext:image.iptc.txt image.jpg image.iptc.jpg


... and a few other combinations to add my iptc profile into the image

I don't know if the contents of the file are incorrect or what  

I am using ImageMagick-5.5.6-4

PLEASE HELP!!!


Thanks,
Jake
