workflow for exiftool

Recommended Posts

I tried to integrate the comandline exiftool http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ into a worklow.

No chance. I don't know how to get it working.

I tried to use the File Metadata workflow from Jack James http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/1257-file-metadata/?hl=meta

Didn't work out for me. Is someone able to build such a workflow. I'm interested in getting the geolocation from photos with that.

Just got a few steps further. I managed to get this thing working.

BUT - the information that is most interesting to me, the GPS Latitude and GPS Longitude seems to fail.

I guess has something to do with escaping characters?


The row from the exiftool in terminal looks like:


GPS Latitude                    : 50 deg 24' 27.60" N


The part of the AppleScript that splits the column:


repeat with i from 1 to number of paragraphs in exifdata

        set this_item to paragraph i of exifdata


        set this_data to my splitByColon(this_item)


Do I have to escape it somehow? Any suggestions someone?
