Reading EXIF metadata embedded by Adobe Bridge
on Sep 29, 2015 at 1:25:42 pm

Hello all,

We have thousands of still images that have been tagged in Adobe Bridge, which then embedded these tags as EXIF metadata into the headers of the images themselves. Using ExifTool I can see all of this metadata, e.g Copyright notice, Description, Keywords, etc.

Most of this information is also visible in mac Finder in the Get Info window, under More Info. But none of it is visible in CatDV after ingest, e.g. in the Other details panel. CatDV's pre-defined EXIF metadata fields relate mostly to image tech specs and there aren't EXIF fields for Copyright notice, Description, Keywords etc.

Is there a way to add the necessary EXIF metadata fields to CatDV? How can I display this embedded EXIF info in CatDV?

I believe you actually wanting to read xmp metadata, which contains IPTC Core fields (Copyright notice, Description, Keywords).

These are listed in CatDV. Try looking under your 'Other' tab that displays all the metadata for the file. XMP is stored as namespaces. A list of which you can find here:

Hey guys, sorry, been a bit busy.

The specific Bridge added metadata often goes into a field called "Metadata (Media)" that's visible in the "Other" tab. It's often all in there separated with line breaks.

We've done metadata migration services to script extracting that and writing it to specific USER fields, if needed but CatDV on its own doesn't always process each value to a field.

Could you take a look and see if that's where the data is?

Just checking on this one.

Were you able to get the md to import?
