Suggestion for PM: Extract batch of IPTC fields to text files
« on: January 21, 2020, 04:32:43 AM »
So, here's my idea for PM version x+1... Publication prep. Say you've assembled a batch of selected images already, processed them, nicely captioned them in PM.
Now, you want to prep your output to a publication editor featuring the image, below it a caption in clear text, ready to compose a press release or pass on to an editor. Can we now bulk extract both the image and the caption text to a document maybe even formatted the output appropriately (AP's guide for captioning as one example of style)? Is this a good future addition to PM or a the basis for a standalone app?
Just throwing out as something I do regularly that could be customized further for use with PM's already existing and awesome talents. Any further thoughts?
