Image Info Editor

The Image Info Editor displays information about the displayed image and permits you to edit a few of the items like the comment field. If the Image Window contains an Image Set, header information is shown for all images. You can switch between image set members using the tab control at the bottom of the window.


This command is available for both RGB and non RGB images. For FITS format images, it shows only a small portion of what is usually present in the FITS image header (see FITS Header Dialog).

Color Coding

This dialog uses light pink color to display image information that cannot be edited, such as File Name or Data Type. The pink information may be changed by various Mira functions but may not be manually using an editor. Fields that are white may be edited as shown for "Description" in the picture above.

Save your changes

Changes made in the Image Info dialog do not take effect until you have accepted them by clicking a button. These changes are made only to the displayed image(s).



Header changes affect only the displayed image. To make the changes permanent in the image file, you must save the image using the File > Save command or an equivalent.
