8.4.3 - Author

This reads (using From Image) the author information associated with the currently active image, and will set it if you apply any area selection to an image with this operator active.

When a new image is created, this is initially set equal to the application preferences setting. When an image is cropped, this is set to that of the parent image.

undo and redo both affect the current state. Images brought in with a paste from image data or a drag-and-drop do not assume your defaults. A paste or drag-and-drop from a text filename may set this if the image format supports it.

Caution: Not all image formats support author chunks. Those that do include .png, .jpg, .ato, and .elx — if you save your image in a format that does not support author chunks, the author information will not be recoverable from that image file.
