extracting bridge metadata

Aug 3, 2012 8:22 AM

After adding info to the metadata, such as city, sublocation, state, description, I have to enter all the same data to an MSwroks database that i then import into MSAccess. 

I thought maybe there was some way to just transfer data with the same field names and thought of adding more of  Windows Explorer tags.  The date created already is there so I searched the list and added city, and state, camera model, etc.  But then those fields and others were still blank, though filled in Bridge.

.  So I am wondering how such information would get into Explorer to be displayed, if Bridge's categories aren't the same. 

IS there any way to export such desired information from all the images in a folder.  I just finished supplying the data to another 800+ images recently shot and don't relish entering it all again into the MSWorks database.

    You can extract all the required information using the BarredRock script near the end of this thread..

    or you could use ExifTool http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

    If it's only a few fields this script might do.

    Install instructions are on the page and they would apply to the BarredRock script as well. This script will work with CS2 or better (including CS6)

    I have modified the Extract Metadata script so that it will extract from raw files (NEF,CR2 etc) so please download the zip again for the new version.

    It works for me, maybe you are using different fields.

    Could you tell me what version of Bridge you are using and what schema(s) and field names you want extracting.

    (See Rawdata in File Info)

    I have changed the IPTC City and Country to the Photoshop Schema.

    Could you please try this now.

    If you let me know what fields you would like added I will try and add them.

    Glad it may be of use to you.

    Paul,

     

    I have just used script to extract metadata. Once I found it extracted to the desktop, Great!

     

    Thanks for that.
