Subject [greenstone-devel] Importing xmp & IPTC images in greenstone 2.83
Hello All,
I'm using Greenstone version 2.83. I'm trying to build a collection of
images (TIFF) which have metadata in xmp and IPTC format using Adobe bridge
software. Adobe bridge is a tool I've used earlier to create metadata data
(in xmp format) for my images, now I'm trying to build a collection in
greenstone (GLI) and I'm trying to import the images into greenstone without
having to type in the metadata all over again. I'm hoping that there should
be a way to retain the metadata that was created in Adobe bridge because
that is xmp and IPTC format.

I tried to build the collection using GLI and in the 'enrich' tab I used
Image plug in and Embeddedmetadata plug in. When I clicked on the preview
collection I saw that the images were retained in the collection but the
metadata had been stripped so there is no text associated with those images.
That makes it harder to retrieve the images from the GLI collection as I
cannot search for them using any keywords.

Can you please point to me what I'm missing? Has someone already worked on
this before? Perhaps there is already a message thread on this topic?

Thank you very much for your help,
