This innovative feature was devised by our experienced image librarians who were tired of cataloguing and wanted a way to speed up the process.

The solution was simple…

  1. Drag and Drop a selection of images that have a similar subject into Cataloguing Pane 1
    • Apply the metadata that is relevant to all
  2. Select a group of similar images from Pane 1, Drag and Drop into Cataloguing Pane 2
    • Add more detailed metadata
  3. Drag and drop sub-set from the group into Cataloguing Pane 3
    • Refine the metadata
  4. Continue to Drag forward and refine the metadata for smaller groups of images until a set is complete and then save.
  5. You then return to the previous Pane and continue with steps 2-4 until all images are completed.

  • The process is amazingly quick and efficient and at each stage you can select the fields you want to edit.
  • You can also choose to overwrite existing metadata in your selected fields, or append it (add to what’s already there).
