Add ability to edit metadata fields on multiple images at once.

Kelsey M 1 year ago in Feature requests updated 5 months ago 8

With our use case, we have a number of custom metadata fields which we need to apply to multiple images in a folder. Is there currently a way / could it be updated to allow multiple images to be selected and then update the metadata for all of them at once, rather than having to do it individually?

Under review

Only tagging can be currently done on multiple items at the same time, but we are looking into adding options for other metadata as well.

Thanks for response Vlad, good to hear you are looking into added this in the future. It is something which would be key for our use case in the near future as our gallery develops. Hopefully we can offer a temporary work around for now with metadata at a folder level relating to files within.

This could be really useful for my installation as well, Is this something we may be able to expect in an upcoming update?

Hi Vlad,

this feature will be great :)

Do you hav a date for the next release?


I'm in the process of implementing filerun pretty much exclusively for metadata searching and tagging of a large amount of mixed media (docs, pics, videos, music, etc.). Is there a view for showing all tags? or batch deleting tags from multiple files at once in case of user error? apply or edit tags to all files within folder (excluding folders)? Or alternatively some kind of organization of Collections - something like grouping collections?


Any ETA on this feature or the next release?
