Is script needed to copy XMP data to Attribute?
« on: January 27, 2019, 04:45:24 PM »
I would like to copy the contents of one XMP metadata field to a newly created attribute field in tens of thousands of images. Would I need to write a script for that or is there an easier way of accomplishing this?

Just use the Attribute Import app available in the Import & Export Panel.

I did run into a (small) issue though. When I tried to update 7000 odd images I was told this was too much, so I had to do it in batches. Apart from this it worked beautifully.
