XML Import
« on: April 07, 2022, 07:19:23 AM »
Dear all, is there an XML Importer in PM 6 or plus? I know that XML metadata can be exported. Now I need to go the reverse way and need to import XML metadata.

No, there is no generic XML importer.  But XMP can be imported into the Metadata (IPTC) Info and Metadata (IPTC) Template dialogs by clicking the "Load..." button.

A generic XML importer would be fine, the Load button applies the same text to all pictures.

It doesn't exist.  Sorry.

Depending on how your XML is set up, if you convert that XML to TSV, it might be possible to use the Code Replacement feature to apply that data to multiple files in bulk. What sort of XML file are you starting with?
