Wrong promises
By , for WP 4.1

This plugin promises a lot but doesn't work. It only adds all those promised fields in your medialibrary, but they are BLANK for you to manually fill in on a one pic at a time basis.

I checked my images in WP Media library. They all have keywords (added manually before uploading) and camera/basic EXIF included. None of these are displayed with the plugin in action. So, the plugin doesn't actually "extract" any info as the authors states in the plugin description. The plugin simply adds the functionality for you to fill in everything, not in bulk.

I tried it with a new upload. The only info the plugin extracted was the name of the camera. No keywords were extracted!

Plus the plugin obviously lacks any Settings page, so you are stuck with all the fields there, even the ones you don't actually need.

Huge disappointment! Wrong description that misleads people!

Works great. In conjunction with the Photopress-Galleries plugin, make building and managing a large photowebsite easy.
