Move Collections into Categories

Recommended Posts



Our main catalog, imported from an Expression Media catalog, is mainly classified hierarchically in "collections".

For various reasons, we would like to transfer these collections into "categories" (same hierarchical structure).

Obviously, we could do this manually, collection (and sub-collection) per collection / sub-collection.

But if an automatic method exist (such as script), it would save us a lot of time.


Thanks for your advices.

I use the ExifToolGUI to work with the Exiftool. Just to get a "feeling" about the performance you should select at first some of your files.

The command line has to be entered here:
