How can I extract Bridge (version CS4) metadata to Excel? I find some guidance here in the Adobe forums about moving metadata from a spreadsheet to Bridge, but I need to export Filename and ITPC Core Description fields from Bridge to a Excel (or CSV) file. Any advice would be welcome!
If you want to do this through Bridge, you would use the functions xmpData.getProperty or xmpData.getArrayItem. Of course, there's more to it than that. The Bridge SDK has an example script called "SnpInspectMetadata.jsx"
This command will recursively scan all subfolders and files within the “Pictures” folder of the current logged in user and create a tab delimited text file on the user’s Desktop containing the keyword metadata found in each image. The previous command line code is from the Mac, on Windows simply change the single straight quote/foot mark ' to straight double quote/inch marks " with the correct platform specific path to the top level folder.
