If the VRA Bridge Metadata Tools export-import plugin doesn't have the fields you need, or has more than you want to deal with, you might want to try the Adobe Bridge User Customizable Export-Import Tool


Question, comments?  emwg@vraweb.org



  • The VRA display fields are backward compatible with previous VRA file info panels and export-import tools

  • This palette is compatible with the VRA Transform Tools http://core.vraweb.org/vracore_tools.html
    • A standard template is used which limits how many times fields can be repeated
    • You can exceed these limitations, but the additional data will not be recognized by other VRA tools
  • The IPTC fields are compatible with all other metadata tools
