There isn't one. However, you can use my Folder List Export script to generate a tab-delimited list of files and metadata.

Keywords are stored in the file and displayed in Bridge dynamically on the view/selected file.

 

It is possible to export/import keywords with ExifTool or a custom script:

I tested also ExifTool however I only see "subkeywords" (from a Bridge perspective), not the parent one. Or am I missing something? thanks a lot.

The legacy IPTC -keywords tag is depreciated, I'd suggest that you try the XMP DC:Subject tag -subject instead.

 

This may or may not resove the issue, depending how the keyword metadata was written.

 

P.S. Screenshots or sample files are always useful/helpful.

Keywords are sometimes written by cameras into the IPTC tag. And be aware that there are three current namespaces that store keywords:

Microsoft, dc, and lr

I tested it and it looks really good thank you !

However it seems the tool will not go into subfolders, which means that the task can be quite long if I have to export all keywords from all subfolders of my photolibrary. Do you see an alternative or an improvement to the script to do so?

thanks a lot.

You would need to modify a script to recursively search folders. This could take FOREVER so its not going to be a default option for a script writer.

Perhaps by using the Bridge feature to show content from sub folders and to hide folders and using filters or smart collection the files can be isolated and selected as a single group, in effect manually making a recursive view and selection that a standard script can work on.

It is really easy to drill into all subfolders with ExifTool by adding the following argument:

 

-r

 

or

 

-recurse

 

However, you may need to add further parameters to isolate specific file types and to ignore specific named directories under the top-level directory.
