Exporting Metadata Listed in a Separate File

You can select images and export the IPTC metadata assigned to them in a tab-delimited text file. The text file also lists the version names, ratings, keywords, and color labels assigned to the images in Aperture.

For more information about IPTC metadata, see More Information About IPTC Metadata.

To export image metadata in a text file
  1. Select the images whose metadata you want to export.

  2. Choose File > Export > Metadata.

  3. Enter a name for the text file in the Save As field, select the location where you want the file stored, then click Export Metadata.

Aperture exports the metadata information as a standard Unicode text file that you can open and use with any application that uses text files.
