Request: add an functionality/option to have the ability to add automatically and recursively (for all personnes and all images) the/some iptc keywords (related to the hierarchised ancestris data).

(FYI: a tool already exists, it's called exiftoof)

Examples, maybe by this way:
#exiftool -iptc:keywords+=name -iptc:keywords+=surname -iptc:keywords+=lieux_de_naissance iptc:keywords+=date_de_naissance iptc:keywords+=etc -o b.jpg a.jpg

---------
#http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/exiftool_pod.html

#Add an IPTC keyword in a pipeline, saving output to a new file.
#cat a.jpg | exiftool -iptc:keywords+=fantastic - > b.jpg
iptc:keywords+=etc -o a-english.jpg a.jpg

Hello,

Instead of adding such functionality, it would be more accurate to write a report to do the trick.
Now, it's time to do a call to persons of good will to do so ;-) Help wanted ;-) Francois

Hi François,
You are right, it's, in fact, an easier alternative. (via a plugin) ;-)
Best regards.
