Can you import metadata from an excel database to images (JPG, PSD, TIF) in bulk?

I am very new to working with metadata. I have a microsoft excel file with the IPTC Core fields I need for each image file.

(Creator, Headline, Description, Keywords, Title, Job Identifier, Credit Line, Source, Rights Usage Terms, Copyright Status and Copyright Notice)

Is there a way to get the metadata into the files without having to copy from a cell into each metadata field individually?

I am hoping some for sort of script, possibly...

Also, if only ONE of these fields needed updating in all of the files (i.e. Rights Usage Terms) can that be done?

I have Bridge 5.1 (and earlier versions CS3/CS4)

SuperMerlin, quick question.  The Latitude and Longitude are exact duplicates.  But the formatting on the Altitude is different between the 2 columns. One has a preceding "+"  and the other has a trailing " m"

+140.951

140.951 m

Will this change the script?

That is not shown in you example csv file, as they are both the same:-

DJI_0002.JPG,50,0.008,0.007,0.017,34.95187873,-89.93024736,+148.931,34.95187873,-89.930247 36,+148.931

The one starting with a plus would be the correct format.

So this is what it would require:-

DJI_0002.JPG,50,0.008,0.007,0.017,34.95187873,-89.93024736,+148.931

Hope this helps.

Hey SuperMerlin,

Sorry for the confusion.  If a CSV file is opened in Excel and has a leading + it is not shown .  I have copied the code you provided in post 105 exactly into my Bridge script.  The first 10 records from my csv file is as follows (pasting from Notepad++):

DJI_0002.JPG,50,0.008,0.007,0.017,34.95187873,-89.93024736,+148.931

DJI_0003.JPG,50,0.008,0.007,0.017,34.95181193,-89.93017817,+149.19

DJI_0004.JPG,50,0.008,0.011,0.015,34.95176096,-89.93012334,+149.67

DJI_0005.JPG,50,0.008,0.006,0.015,34.95170888,-89.93005634,+149.769

DJI_0006.JPG,50,0.008,0.006,0.015,34.95165501,-89.92998616,+149.653

DJI_0007.JPG,50,0.008,0.007,0.016,34.95154082,-89.92984514,+149.955

DJI_0008.JPG,50,0.012,0.019,0.016,34.95148343,-89.92977355,+150.012

DJI_0009.JPG,50,0.008,0.007,0.016,34.95142627,-89.92969896,+149.788

DJI_0010.JPG,50,0.008,0.007,0.016,34.95136721,-89.92962243,+149.572

DJI_0011.JPG,50,0.008,0.006,0.015,34.95130963,-89.92954778,+149.635

When I open Bridge>Tools>Drone Metadata V3

Then select the CSV file, it sits there for 2-3 seconds and then Bridge closes.

Here is the link to 10 images that go with above data and the script I have in Bridge.   Hoping you can see what might be wrong.

I am running this on Windows 10

Thank you for helping me on this!

SuperMerlin,

Just looking through the code (cross eyed!).  On Line 40 Longitude is referenced in the JS as [Lng] where down below for the tags it is referenced as [Lon] .  I could not tell if they should be the same or not.

That variable is ok as it is in a function, so it makes it local to that function only.

I am also using Windows 10 and Bridge 9.0.2.219 X64 (Latest Bridge Version)

It took less than a second to process all ten files without any errors, also I was using your script.

What version of Bridge are you using?

Edit: I have just tested the script with Bridge CS3,CS5,CS6,CC2018 & CC2019 all took less than a second to process.

SuperMerlin,

The problem is related to the number of entries in the CSV file.  It runs fine with 10 or 50 records in the CSV.  But when I bump it up to 200 records it crashes.  I did not work down to find the cutoff point but there is something in the processing that is crashing above a certain record count in the CSV file.

So not sure if the crash would be due to exceeding a length of time (processing time) or a number of records?

Interesting, I wonder if its a memory problem as It's loading all the details into memory?

Could you please try this version as it loads one line at a time and not the whole csv file.

Edit: Jive is messing the code up, you could try to get it from here:

SuperMerlin,

The new script does not run either (with all records).  I have been running this on my office PC.  So I went and tried it on my new PC build for drone mapping and it did the same there.  Nothing can slow that one down

This is my office PC.  Should not have any memory issues.   I am sure it is something simple.  Just figuring out what that is may be a challenge.

I have generated 300 files and can reproduce the problem, it seems the script is running too fast for Bridge to process the files and is just eating memory, so far I have managed to get it to update 300 files but then Bridge closes, so still working on it.

Houston, we have Lift-off!! 

SuperMerlin, That worked perfectly and it was SMOKING fast!  It was so fast that I thought it had failed to write the images.  But I checked the first and last images and they are updated.   So thank you SuperMerlin and also thank you Stephen for your help!  This will help alot of drone mappers  

I had 360 images.  So soon I will try this on a larger data set of 500-600 images and then up to around 1500 images.

Stephen,

I thought it was writing the GpsLongitude and GpsLatitude in DJI:XMP section but this morning that is not the case   .

This is my modified script.  Is GpsLongitude considered 'rational' or should it be something else? 

%Image::ExifTool::UserDefined = (

  'Image::ExifTool::DJI::XMP' => {

        RtkFlag => { Writable => 'rational',  },

        RtkStdLon => { Writable => 'rational',  },

        RtkStdLat => { Writable => 'rational',  },

        RtkStdHgt => { Writable => 'rational',  },

        GpsLongitude => { Writable => 'rational',  },

        GpsLatitude => { Writable => 'rational',  },

        AbsoluteAltitude => { Writable => 'rational',  },

    },

);

When I export the meta data out using ExifToolGUI it is showing that the GpsLatitude and GpsLongitude are being updated in the EXIF section and not the DJI:DRONE XMP block.  How do I force it to write this to the XMP block?  Below I am showing output from 2 images.  The First one is where I ran ExifTool to update.  The SECOND one is from an original image that contains the data originally (from drone camera).  I tried using Bridge to copy and paste the exif data but it does not contain seperate it by block type like the ExifTool-GUI does.

I thought it was writing the GpsLongitude and GpsLatitude in DJI:XMP section but this morning that is not the case.

For the GPS group tags, try using  ‘rational64s' in the .config file, while keeping  'rational'  for the DJI group tags.

Stephen,

I misread your comment.  The problem is that ExifTook is updating the existing GPS data in the EXIF block instead of adding new tags in the XMP block.

So for my example it should be adding this to the DJI:DRONE XMP block.

Gps Latitude                    : 34.951879°

Gps Longitude                   : 89.930247°

But instead it is updating the GPS tags that already exist in the EXIF block.  If the solution is to update the one AND add the second I could .  But Pix4D mapping software will be looking at the DJI:DRONE XMP tags to get the data it needs to map processing. So that is why I need to add it there.

When I look at the EXIF data (all blocks) for an image that was taken with a different model drone (the one I am trying to emulate), the GPS data is duplicated.  It is in the EXIF block and it is also in the XMP block.  Hope this helps clarify.

Edit: Your csv is using tag shortcuts, try using the explicit full group:tag instead.

Would I enter the tag in the CSV like this?

<drone-dji:GpsLongtitude>

Or do I leave the < > off?

drone-dji:GpsLongtitude

And would I also change this in the config file?

Here is the revised code, also added a bit of error checking this time.

Could you please test this now.

#target bridge  

if( BridgeTalk.appName == "bridge" ) { 

var drone = new MenuElement( "command", "Drone Metadata", "at the end of Tools" );

}

drone.onSelect = function () {

var csvFile = File.openDialog("Open Comma-delimited File","comma-delimited(*.csv):*.csv;");

if (!csvFile.exists) return;

     csvFile.open('r');

     var data = csvFile.read().split("\n");

    csvFile.close();

    var line = new Array();

    for(var a in data){

        var Q = data.toString();

        if(Q.length > 2) line.push(Q);

        }

for(var z in line){

var p=line.split(',');

droneMetadata(trim(p[0]),trim(p[1]),trim(p[2]),trim(p[3]),trim(p[4]));

}

alert("Batch complete\nDrone Error Log on Desktop\n If any errors occured");

function trim(s){

    return s.replace(/^\s+|\s+$/g,'');

    }

function log(message){

var errorLog = File(Folder.desktop + "/Drone Error Log.txt");

errorLog.open("a");

errorLog.writeln(message);

errorLog.close();

   }

function droneMetadata(th,Flag,Lon,Lat,Hgt){

var file = new File(new Folder(app.document.presentationPath)+ '/' + trim(th));

if(!file.exists){

    log("File does not exist! " + trim(th));

    return;

    }

var thumb = new Thumbnail(file);

md = thumb.synchronousMetadata;

if(thumb.hasMetadata){

Be careful with presentationPath. There are bugs that prevent it from working on certain folders such as the desktop, the script will crash if you reference one of them.

Hey SuperMerlin!

That worked, no lockup.  However I updated the code to account for all fields but I ended up with GPS data in the XMP section instead of the EXIF section.  Here is the modified code.  Can you tell me where I made the booboo?  Thanks for the updated code!

Rtk Flag                        : 16

Rtk Std Lon                     : 0.008

Rtk Std Lat                     : 0.007

Rtk Std Hgt                     : 0.017

GPS Latitude                    : 34.95187873

GPS Longitude                   : -89.93024736

GPS Altitude                    : 148.931

Version                         : 7.0

Has Settings                    : False

-------------------------------------------------------

SPECIAL NOTE: the Lat, Lon, Hgt now refer to the GPS coordinates, and StdLat, StdLon, StdHgt refer to the standard deviation (error accuracy value). 

Also when looking at the modified EXIF data there is an error message at the top:

---- ExifTool ----

ExifTool Version Number         : 11.26

Warning                         : [minor] Possibly incorrect maker notes offsets (fix by 1783?)
