Extracting information from a folder containing pictures + Sorting based on non-proposed fields

Dear community,


I am currently working on a project to push all teh pictures from our products into a new centralised system. In order to do so, I need to enter manually a number of metadata, and I am trying to figure out a way to ease the process. I have been directed to Bridge, but to be honnest, my knowledge of the software is pretty limited. Is teher a way to easily:

- add filters for sorting?

- extract the results (filenames) into a format that you be used in excel?

The main thing I need to do is get the colours (CMYK, Pantones, etc.) for each picture, but depending of the file type, it is not available in the same fields. I did manage to filter by color mode, but cannot seem to export "just" the filenames, and I cannot figure out how to get Plates into the filters.

Do you have any idea if this is feasible? If not, can you think of another (cheap) software I could use? We are not willing to invest too much for a one off exercise...

Thank you for your support 🙂
