I have been working on a blog post about creating photo indexes or advertising indexes based on grabbing caption data of an image and then running a table of contents, then a script to sort into alpha order and a GREP to remove double-up entries.
However, while using the "Name" and "Description" has worked well, I decided to use some camera-specific information such as make/model. When trying to reference the make/model of camera, InDesign only references "Camera", not its make or model, and the results are hit and miss. Sometimes the results on a caption are either:
have been reading up on EXIF info from cameras and IPTC info within the metadata, which just poses more questions than answers.
is there a way to "cleanse" the EXIF information so that it can be interpreted by InDesign's caption feature to perhaps concatenate the make/model fields of the metadata, and would this involve bridge?
I should have performed a more thorough search. As always seems to be the case, someone else has experienced what i've been through before and already written about it. Sadly, there was no final outcome, but did offer more insight into the situation:
