Exporting metadata from Lightroom to Excel

For all those out there wanting to export metadata from Lightroom to CSV, I have found a Fantastic Company www.pkzsoftware.com that sell their product for approx AUS $10.00 "Lightroom Metadata Explorer" it works perfectly and their customer service is just the best you will find anywhere, being a computer novice I had a few problems and they went out of their way to assist me to get exactly the data I needed. Can't speak highly enough of the Company.

John,
Thanks for your reply and the references to the tools. I ran the sqlLite Database Browser to look at the LR database, and to be honest it was pretty much gibberish to me. There's over 50 tables in the database and some quick browsing through them revealed data that would seem to require a knowledge of the database structure to extract. I'm a photographer with very good knowledge of how to use software tools to do my job, but I'm not a programmer and really don't have the time or the desire to become one.
My point is any good database software should have the capability to generate at least a flat file of the information contained within. In LR's case, I (and it seems others based on feature requests) would like to see a capability of exporting a CSV or tab-delimited file of the information contained in the side panels (i.e., keywords, the metadata browser, and the metadata panel for starters) on an image-by-image basis. I could then use the output in any of several other tools to do what I need.
Thanks again for your helpful links. Maybe someone can come up with a "CSV generator" using one of those tools that could be shared among LR users.

  • Exporting metadata from Lightroom to a flat file.

    I would like to export the metadata in a lightroom database to a flat file or Excel sheet. Is this possible? I'm using lightroom on a PC.

  • Exporting Metadata from bridge to excel or other like program.

    Is there a way to export just the metadata, using Bridge, associated with an image file into excel, access, or some other like program?
    I would like to perform some kind of batch processing, so as to make the process quick. But I would be open to any other work around scenario.
    I am working with Windows XP Professional and Adobe CS2.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    I've followed the instructions and I am having problems getting data to the folder I set up on my desktop.
    I have tried selecting several images and then just one image to export the slected metadata to said folder. By right clicking the images and chosing the script you sent me and then followed your instructions for when your CSV Data Collector Window pops up.
    For the Please Slect Folder option i browsed to the folder where I want the info to go to.
    ~/Desktop/Kens Files/KensTest
    For the Please Enter CSV Filename, I copied the title of the image name "2005-agropyron002.jpg"
    Then I chose the type of data that I want to import such as:
    FileName
    DocWidth
    DocHigth...
    I then go to that folder and there is no info. there.
    Please, if you can, give me more detailed instruction.
    Thanks,

  • Exporting photos from Lightroom that are good enough quality for a photography website.

    I am doing a website for a photographer client that need to showcase their images in a rotating gallery that will be about 1/2 the page so pretty big. She gave me all the photos in FULL size which meant that they were excellent quality and looked amazing on my computer at home as I have fast internet and they all loaded up in seconds. Only problem, when I tried it on a different internet source that wasn’t as speedy, they took so long to load that the next one would start, hence no images ever being visible. This is not good as not everyone will have as fast internet as me and it’s pointless if no one can see her work.
    She then exported them for web, using the normal settings that she usually would, leaving them around 200-600KB which loads up nice and quickly, but the quality just don’t do the photo’s justice AT ALL!
    I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions of the setting to use to export them from lightroom so that the quality is still next to perfect, but they are small enough so that they load up in a reasonable time on the web.
    Each photo displays for 5 full seconds before alternating.
    Thank you in advance and if you have any further suggestions, I would love to hear them.

    You need to use export settings similar to this:
    Quality setting should be at least 60, but you can sometimes get away with less. (smaller file size)
    But if you need to export a lot of images, do them all at 60, and re-export as necessary. If you for instance see blockiness in a clear blue sky, increase quality until it goes away.
    Color space must be set to sRGB.
    Set the required size in pixels, using Long edge is quite convenient. Whatever you enter in the resolution box doesn't matter - web browser ignore ppi.
    Experiment with Screen sharpening to find the setting that works best. Standard usually works OK, but it depends on the sharpness of the original.
    Set Metadata to Copyright Only, this keeps file size down.

  • Exporting Jpegs from Lightroom - DPI question

    When I export Jpegs from Lightroom, I set the dpi to 300 pixels per inch. I do not specify a max width or height. When I view these files in Adobe Bridge (CS2 or CS3) the file info says 300dpi. However, when I open the files in Photoshop and select image size, It says 72dpi and has the document size set to very large. I realize that I can enter 300 dpi and uncheck the resample box, I am just confused as to why this is happening.
    My concern is, that I upload my images directly to my lab after exporting from Lightroom. Will this cause problems?
    Thanks in advance!
    David

    the image resolution is a combination of the two parameters you mention: size and dpi. a very large size at 72 dpi is equivalent to a small size (like 3x5) at very high dpi. for printing you want at least 240 dpi at the largest size that allows you to keep that resolution. for screen presentations or your web site you want jut 72 dpi. 72 dpi and 2x3 inches will require a very small file size.
    I suggest you to export images at TIFF and not JPEG as that will allow you to preserve the image quality when doing editing in PS.
    In my case I export TIFF for PS (when I need PS editing) and 72 dpi JPEG for my web site (that way if somebody downloads my image illegally thy get a poor resolution copy). But since LR works very well for me 90% of the images re just kept in raw mode and I print from LR.

  • My Images won't open in Photoshop CS5 when I click on Edit in Lightroom - even though this option has been selected?  To edit in Photoshop I have to export image from Lightroom then import into Photoshop.  I have other programmes such as NIK and if I wish

    My Images won't open in Photoshop CS5 when I click on Edit in Lightroom - even though this option has been selected?  To edit in Photoshop I have to export image from Lightroom then import into Photoshop.  I have other programmes such as NIK and if I wish to edit in these everything works fine.

    Same here. I've never had trouble with this function before.
    It opens the Photoshop application with all the menus/windows, but it never opens the actual image I chose to work on.
    I'm on a Mac, using OS X Yosemite, 10.10.1  Lightroom is version 5.7  Photoshop is CS5, version 12.0.4
    FWIW, I also can't automate>Photomerge ... . Makes me think Photoshop, not Lightroom, is all wacky. I tried dumping PS preferences

  • Export data from forms to excel

    HI
    In my application im trying to export data from forms to excel.Everything works fine.First of all im using get_file_name for selecttion of file and passing it to ole2 package as follows
    FILENAME := GET_FILE_NAME(File_Filter=> 'XLS Files (*.xls)|*.xls|',dialog_type=>SAVE_FILE);
         ARGS:=OLE2.CREATE_ARGLIST;
         oLE2.ADD_ARG(ARGS,Filename);
         OLE2.INVOKE(WORKSHEET,'SAVEAS',ARGS);
    The problem is if i select an existing file the get_file_name itself raises one message ".....file already exists Replace an existing file?"
    Similarly the excel also also raises the same message "".....file already exists Replace an existing file?".I want to suppress atleast one of them? Could anyone help for this problem?
    appreciate ur help
    THANKS

    Looks like...
    ole2.set_property( ex_app, 'DisplayAlerts', false );
    where "ex_app" variable Excel Application -
         ex_app:=     ole2.create_obj('Excel.Application');
    and more Question:

  • I updated my computer to 10.10.1 and now my photoshop isn't in my applications folder anymore. Even when I try to export photos from Lightroom, PS isn't even an option anymore. Not sure where it went or how to get it back! Thanks!

    Using 6-7 year old software that's no longer receiving updates & was never designed to run on 10.10 is asking for trouble.   That said, try re-installing PS and installing Java SE6

    It might work.  But again it might not.
    Good luck!

  • Is it possible to copy or export metadata from Folio Producer?

    Hi,
    Is it possible to copy or export metadata from one issue in Folio Producer and import/apply it to a different issue in Folio Producer? Or create a master metadata template that every issue build could use? It would save a lot of time and typing not having to re-enter the same information every month when releasing the next issue for departments, bylines, etc.
    Thanks!

    Bob,
    Do you know when exporting metadata from Folio Producer will be available, and will it export directly to another rendition, or would it export to a sidecar.xml file?
    The workflow my team prefers is to build our 1024x768 folio first, add metadata via Properties in the Folio Builder as we add articles, share the folio with editors and advertising sales, make edits and updates, then when all content is approved, create the 2048x1536 rendition folio using multiple importing of articles.
    Having the ability to export from an existing folio in Folio Producer would save tons of tedious copying/pasting to get a sidecar.xml.
    Hopefully when this becomes available you'll have a big announcement. (Please?)
    Thanks in advance.

    Symptom
    Unable to Export images from a Web Intelligence report to Microsoft Excel.
    A Web Intelligence report is created using images to denote alerts. The report works OK in Web Intelligence but when exported to Microsoft Excel, the images do not display.
      Environment  
    Business Objects Enterprise XI Release 2
    Business Objects Enterprise XI 3.1
      Reproducing the Issue  
    Create a simple Web Intelligence document.
    Add a blank cell and within that cell link it to an image. (Either set as background for the cell or Image URL.)
    Save and export to Excel. The image will not be displayed.
    Cause
    Web Intelligence export engine does not support the export of images to excel.
    Resolution
    In BI4.0, Web Intelligence export engine does support the export of images to excel.
    Workaround 1 :
    Most image formats are supported in PDF export. Users may be able to use that as an alternative.
    Workaround 2 :
    If images are required in the final Excel document, the user would need to recreate those image links manually in Excel.
