Feature request: Importing Keywords

Unread postby Lümmel » 11.03.2011 11:36

Perhaps I didn't find it, but it seems that Photo Safe isn't able to import keywords from pictures (e.g. from Exif). Could that be integrated? It would make transition from other applications to Photo Safe much easier.

Thanks, good point. The problem is that different programs store keywords in different Exif fields and in different format (Unicode, ASCII). I would appreciate one of such file for tests.

I would like to upload a picture, but I'm not allowed to do so.

Thanks for the example. I can see the keywods "Natur,Pilze" in the IPTC informate, I can see them in "Edit IPTC" dialog, I can filter by these keywords the image in Helicon Photo Safe. So I do not see a bug here. You might be meaning something else with "importing keywords", right?

Yes, I can search for the keywords in IPTC. My request was to have an option to import these keywords as or in the categories to have the option to assign keywords faster to pictures. Like in Adobe Elements Organizer e.g., or in Picasa. It isn't a bug, I only asked for a feature for a future version.

Thanks for the idea. Now categories and keywods are not connected in any way. As I understand you want a list of existing keywords to use it for assinging and searching, right?

That's exactly what I meant. It would be helpful to be able to import existing keywords rom Exif to the list of categories to assign them to other pictures and to quickly filter pictures.

In addition: Could you add support for Panasonic rw2 RAW-files? They are not recognised yet (only if they were converted to DNG).

We use one embedded raw converter to get thumbnails and three different (DCRAW, embedded, Adobe DNG Converter) to actually open raw files. Please upload one of these files for tests (as described at http://www.heliconsoft.com/ftp.html). Most probably on of those is already able to convert your files.

Helicon Filter reads these files with all included converters. However, Photo Safe does not and I can not specify which converter it should use.

Upload done, same place as last picture.

Thanks for your patience,

Just a note about importing keyword tags -- Photoshop Elements (PSE) allows one to export its keyword tags to an XML file. It might be possible for PhotoSafe to import the tags (as Categories) from that file. I'll be happy to supply the XML file as a sample, but I don't know how to attach an XML file to this message.

Please send us this file by mail to support@heliconsoft.com

Theoretically, HPS can detect XML when it scans images and auto load this information.

Done. The file is "PSE Keyword Tags.zip".

Just for clarification: if the user does not explicitly write PSE's keyword tags to the image files, then those tags only exist in PSE's database. The XML file I sent is a PSE export of the tags in its database.

If the keyword tags are also written to the image files, they are in the "IPTC keywords" metadata.
