Hoping someone can help, and searched for the topic and don’t seem to be able to turn up any existing threads.
We’re running into problems with users searching both Portfolio and Netpublished galleries as the search seems to get hits when keywords appear in the IPTC data. As an example, someone searching our library for “staff” is getting hundreds of images which have had “staff photographer” added to the Creator field, or in some cases where Staffordshire appears in the Address field. As you’d imagine the vast majority of these image do not show pictures of our staff…which is proving frustrating for users.
We’ve failed to find an obvious way to exclude certain fields from a search.
And as a connected question if the above is not possible, would there be any quick way to batch amend data in IPTC fields. Ideally, I’d be able to do a search for all photos with, for example, “staff” appearing in the Creator field and then delete that content for the 1000+ photos (the alternative is to search and then select 50 at a time, which is a drag).
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Cheers - Tom
