Hi,

I'm extracting the IptcKeyword field from the following image:

http://www.getjealous.com/01_sRGB.jpg

There are multiple keywords for the image:

black and white

blonde

classic

fireplace

floor

interior

living room

romantic

Sheller

terrace house

timber

timber floor

white

When I get the keywords out of the request (using php: $HTTP_POST_VARS[IptcKeyword_1]) they are one long string, with each keyword seperated by a string:

black and white blonde classic fireplace floor interior living room romantic Sheller terrace house timber timber floor white

Since there are keywords with spaces, there is no way to find out what they individual keywords are. Is there anyway to get this list. Is there any way you know that I can get around this so that i can loop through each keyword?

Thanks,

George

Hello George,

I confirm the problem in design. There is no way to extract the keywords with spaces using our syntax. We will think about workaround in future version.

Best regards,

Fedor Skvortsov

Thanks Fedor,

I have achieved this by parsing the image on the server side. For anyone else using Java who needs to acomplish this, you can use the MetaData Extraction library from http://www.drewnoakes.com/code/exif/ and the following code:

File jpegFile = new File("C:/stuff/My Documents/Content/01_adobeRGB.jpg");

try {

Metadata metadata = JpegMetadataReader.readMetadata(jpegFile);

// iterate through metadata directories

Iterator directories = metadata.getDirectoryIterator();

while (directories.hasNext()) {

Directory directory = (Directory) directories.next();

if (directory.containsTag(IptcDirectory.TAG_KEYWORDS)) {

try {

for (String s:directory.getStringArray(IptcDirectory.TAG_KEYWORDS)) {

System.out.println(s);

}

} catch (MetadataException e) {

e.printStackTrace();

}

}

}

} catch (JpegProcessingException e) {

e.printStackTrace();

}

Now the ImageUploader.MetaDataSeparator property can be used to define separator symbol for multiple tags.
