Batch Editing using the Export/Import feature

 

You can edit batch of files through exporting/importing EXIF and IPTC data to XML, MS Excel, and CSV files. This method is helpful for changing tags that can't be edited using the program interface.

Exif Pilot with Batch Editing Plug-in allow exporting EXIF and IPTC data from a batch of files to:

  • a corresponded number of files (or exporting the data of each to another file);
  • a single file (exporting data of all files to a single file).

To adjust this setting:

  1. Go to "Tools"->"Options"
  2. Click the "Settings" tab
  3. Activate the option "Export/Import to/from a single File".

Export and Import EXIF

You can export all EXIF and IPTC tags or some of them selectively. Select "Tools"->"Options"->"Customize Export" and create a template with the tags you need to edit. You can save your templates for further editing in the future.
