Hi,

To a degree.

It only works on gallery import, e.g. when you import from a zip.

And it works by matching up custom fields created for images, with the name of EXIF tags:
EXIF Tags

For example, see GainControl is an EXIF field. If there was a custom field named GainControl or Gain Control, it should copy the EXIF value into that during a gallery import.

Additionally, the EXIF caption is used for the title. i.e. the caption goes into the standard ocPortal title field, not a custom field.

For non-gallery-import, the user is expected to manually fill in the form.

Javascript developers may also make use of the fact that the uploader will return EXIF details when it finishes. The Javascript programmer has to define a handle_meta_data_receipt function and do something with the data.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Thanks Chris for explanation.

I embed my exif and metatags direct into the raw data files, so its in the final jpg after converting.
