Hi everyone, I'm new to this group (just started keywording 20,000 images) and wondered if there is an easy way to batch-append IPTC keywords to image filenames?
Currently I batch-rename all new photos in this format: YYMMDD-HHMMSSx_wprasek.jpg
. "x" is a sequence number required to ensure a unique file ID as I sometimes take multiple shots in the same second, while "-wprasek" represents my name/website, www.wprasek.com
However these filenames give no clue to search engines as to what sort of content the image contains, and so they do not show up in image search results. To remedy this, I would like to append perhaps 4 or 5 keywords to the end of the filename.
Ideally I'd like to add IPTC keywords in iView (v3.12 PC) then somehow batch-append the first 4 or 5 keywords to the filename,
ending up with something like this:
Does anyone know of a utility or script that can do this? I'd rather not enter keywords twice - once to IPTC then again manually to the filename.
Thanks for any help
