    Hi
    i just build up a shop to sell my images.

    Do you know if there is a plugin that can import EXIF and/or IPTC data from images into the product?

    Or (if not) a plugin that creates a new tab in a product so that i can import the EXIF/IPTC from lightroom into my products CSV and import it that way.

    kind regards axel

    Hi there,

    I wasn’t able to find an off-the-shelf plugin that could accomplish that. It would need to be a custom solution created by a developer.

    Well, what you could create the CSV which would contain the custom field(s) in the product for the EXIF data. However, then you’d need some way to automatically display the data on the product pages once it’s been imported into WooCommerce from the CSV file. For that you would need to add some custom code to the single-product.php template file. If that’s something you’re wanting to investigate further, you can see how to modify the default WooCommerce template files here: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/template-structure/

    For these kinds of customizations, though, we usually recommend getting the assistance of a developer. (Which you could find here if needed: https://woocommerce.com/customizations)

    Hi @alauer,

    looks like you are all set for now so I am going to mark this thread as Resolved. Feel free to connect with us again should you have any additional questions!

    You can definitely export IPTC and EXIF from Adobe Lightroom (using LR/Transporter) and import using one of many CSV importer plugins. I’m doing it right now.

    I know many users using WP/LR Sync to link Lightroom to their WooCommerce products. Some users even go further to keep prices and other kind of data synchronized; for that they Media Library Assistant, which allows you to do anything based on EXIF, and which is fully compatible with WP/LR Sync. Keeping it simple and automated is better in my opinion, even if you need to hire a developer for a few hours to help you; on the long run, it will worth it.
