Read EXIF and IPTC metadata when uploading an image to Statamic.


Require the addon as a Composer dependency.

composer require heidkaemper/statamic-import-image-metadata

Add a new field to your Asset Container Blueprint. A text field with the handle copyright would be a good start.

Import a JPG or TIFF image that contains metadata. ūüéČ


The default configuration imports metadata for title, copyright and source if the corresponding fields exist in the blueprint.

To change this, you can publish the configuration.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="import-image-metadata-config"

Have a look at the configuration file for details.

Metadata tags

Most common EXIF and IPTC tags should be available. Check these resources:

A specialty of iptcparse in PHP is that the IPTC tags are addressed via the code and are therefore not very human readable. For example, 2#116 would be the copyright field.

To make the configuration a little easier, this plugin maps the most important IPTC tags to more readable titles. However, the IPTC codes work too.
