Create PDF from pictures with EXIF data as caption

Post by fkw-architektur » Sun Jul 29, 2018 9:51 am

Hi
I would like to create a PDF from JPG-pictures with the date the picture was taken as caption. This information is stored in the meta data of the JPG (Exif-data).
The built-in function in PDF-Tools uses only the current date.
Is this possible?
Thank you
Koonstantin

Probably this question goes about a feature request to incorporate Exif recognition in JPG files.

Currently, you will have to use 'an other application' to first rename a copy of your pictures, based on this Exif information.

After this, you can use the renamed pictures to make a new PDF via PDF-XChange Tools.

Hello fkw-architektur,

As Willy said, currently this is not possible to do this directly in the PDF Tools.

We will forward your request to our team of developers to consider it as an option.


Regards.

Hi Guys,

I'm also looking for a way to transform a lot of JPG images to PDFs along with the
EXIFs content... mainly creation Date/Time along with file name.

Is that today possible?

Regards
Bernard

Hello Bernard,

Thanks for adding your voice here, but I am afraid that it's still not currently possible!

Regards,
Stefan

Hi,

For those who could be interersted i finally use Linux "pyrenamer" tool to
add "creation date" to filenames before converting images to pdf.
