Within Brandfolder an editable user can now select specific EXIF metadata fields embedded into a file and convert them into a tag and/or custom field. This heightens the searchability of these potentially important terms for users to see them as soon as they click into any given asset.
Creating a Metadata Conversion
1. Within your Brandfolder, navigate to Settings > Bulk Management.
2. On the Bulk Management screen select Metadata Conversions then + Create New.
3. From here, you can select the type of conversion as either a tag or custom field along with the metadata field you would like to be transformed. Select Create Conversion upon completion.
Note: This does not remove the selected metadata field from the metadata tab.
4. Once the conversion has been created successfully, select Apply. This process will go through and find all assets that have the selected metadata field embedded and turn it into the specified conversion type. On this screen a user also has the ability to edit or delete the conversion should that be necessary.
