Hello all,

I am currently attempting to revise a Web Photo Gallery template to create a gallery containing information built from extracted IPTC data other than that in the default templates. However, I cannot find anything Photoshop documentation of the variables or reference names that are used to extract that alternate data. The online help identifies tokens that may be used in HTML when customizing the galleries, but these tokens are not for the IPTC data fields.

Presently, inspection of the SubPage.htm file in the gallery templates reveals only the following IPTC data variables: FILENAMEURL, CAPTIONTITLE, FILEINFO, CREDITS, COPYRIGHT, FILENAME

Does anyone know what other data variables might be available for extracting additional IPTC data?

Thanks,

Daryl

There are no tokens for extracting strictly IPTC data. There are tokens for extracting some metadata that is aliased from the IPTC data, but none for the IPTC fields themselves.

Marc,

Thanks for your reply. A second question then, to turn your last statement around…Are there any other tokens for extracting additional metadata beyond those which I listed above?

Thanks,

All the tokens supported by WPG are listed in the Photoshop online help.

Dave,

Yes, it’s easy enough to find the token info in the online help, but as my original post stated, the list of tokens provided is a sparse one that is more directly related to the dialog for specifying your gallery page layout than to IPTC data. Meanwhile, the web gallery templates use other tokens that aren’t identified in the online help and are aliased, per Marc’s comment, to some IPTC fields. I had hoped there might be additional tokens beyond those which I found in the web gallery templates that might map to other IPTC fields, but I gather that’s not the case.
