Feature Request: Image Metatags should be used when uploading

description

I spent hours and hours with LightRoom to arrange images setup metatags, and export them to a correct size. My plan was to create a new site with Composite C1 ! I couldn't imagine I would have to reenter 2000 descriptions, and places... And I didn't, I just created standalone galleries attached to my blog content :-)

It makes good sense that the media file upload workflows use the existing title and description from images if present, if present. Any chance you can provide us with a small sample of your export so we can use that in our testing.

I can eventually, it's quite easy to create metatags within Windows. There are some differences from Windows and Adobe Software, you should make some tests around this (Not using the same metatags). GPS Location, and Location could also be retrieved (and eventually other metatags).

Another option, should to have some grid overview of your items where you can define row templates, where it should be possible to make bulk updates of your data. (Preview of the image is totally missing also :-)). Maybe I should create another request for that ? :)
