Using serial number to control FTP
« on: September 17, 2010, 04:25:25 AM »
It seems straightforward to use the camera serial number variable and Code replacements to add the photographer's name to the IPTC data. Is there a way that additionally, the serial number could determine which IPTC stationery pad is applied to the image and to which FTP destination a picture was sent ?
Many thanks,
Martin

No, that is not possible.  If we added a sort of scripting language to PM then something like that would be possible.  We've talked about doing some type of simple scripting language that would allow tying various parts of PM together such that a larger 'tool' function would be available but haven't got past the consideration stage as of now.
