I have a large amount of tagged images that need to be imported into a Sharepoint 2013 image library. Sharepoint imports some of the metadata tags (all EXIF, some IPTC) but not all of the tags I need. SP libraries have a default set of tags they import: Title, Subject, Keywords, Author (photographer), Date Picture Taken, Height, Width. I need it to import City, State/Province, Country, and Person Shown.
Has anybody worked out how to enable additional metadata tags for import?
I know almost nothing about SharePoint, but a quick Google suggests that you can add custom metadata columns to a Sharepoint library and import external data into those columns.
So in your query on the Microsoft Sharepoint forum, you might restate your problem: You have a CSV file providing additional columns of data for images in a Sharepoint image library. How do you create custom metadata columns in that library and import the data from the CSV file?
Thanks, that got me looking for other third-party apps since I don't have Lightroom myself. Picture Information Extractor (Windows), ExifChanger, and GraphicConverter can batch edit and export metadata to a CSV (cool!). Now I just have to get them into the Sharepoint list!
