code replacement with variables
« on: January 22, 2019, 03:59:16 AM »
Hello,

I am wondering if it is possible to implement variables with code replacement. For example, we are 2 photographers each using their own camera. Using the variables "serialnumber" as a code assigned to the photographer who is using this camera body and replace it with the name of the photographer. I tried it and it doesn´t work sadly. Any chance to make it work?

Thanks

Have you tried to replicate the example in the section Advanced Code Replacement in the on-line manual?
http://wiki.camerabits.com/en/index.php?title=User_Manual_Flat_View#Advanced_Code_Replacement

Camera serial number is EXIF-data, and PM may possibly refuse to overwrite it. Said example shows how to use camera serial number to put the photographer's name in the Caption field, but you may want to try one of the (many) other non-EXIF ones.

Can you do this in camera? Many cameras let you add the name to all images taken with it. My EOS 5D4 has IPTC fields I can fill in with photographer, contact and copyright details, but also my 6-year-old son's little Nikon Coolpix W100 does too. (I realise not all will let you do this though.)

Please post your code replacement text file and I'll have a look at it.  Use the 'Attachments and other options' link when you're composing your reply to this message and there you'll be able to upload your file.

Thanks,
