Xpiks - open source software for microstocker

Hi

Of course this is possible. There're 2 ways to do it.

1. Batch Editing (tutorial https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/batch-basic/) using Partial changes (https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/batch-partial/) - you set new keywords in a batch. This way all images will have same keywords (the ones that you will specify)
2. Deleting keywords from a batch (https://xpiksapp.com/tutorials/howto-delete-keywords/) - you specify keywords that you would like to remove in selected images. This way you will only remove keywords in a number of images in a batch.

Hi Taras, thanks for the advice, but that's not what I need. As you suggest, I would have to choose the keys I want to eliminate, and that would take me full days because each image has different keys. What I need is not to discriminate between keys, simply delete based on a number and that the software indiscriminately erases "x" or "y" number of keys.  something I can do in 1 minute whether it be 5 images or 5,000.

I'm sure that programming something like that is possible , but I'm not a programmer!

I think it is not possible in Xpiks to delete keywords based on number of keywords.

Closest thing in Xpiks you can do is to group images with similar keywords (I highly doubt you have 5000 images with unique keywords) and do so some of the steps described above.
 

If you are a "power user" not afraid of command line applications, particularly exiftool (https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/) then you can export all keywords to csv file, open it in Excel, some some magic there and import them again with exiftool. In order to do that you would need to read the documentation on exiftool command line parameters.

You could probably do it in Stocksubmitter. I've never used it for this but I've seen an option to automatically crop keywords to fit an agencies requirements. It might be worth having a look to see if you can make it work for you.

Xpiks just got notarized for macOS Catalina https://xpiksapp.com/blog/2019/xpiks-notarized-for-macos/

In case anybody couldn't start Xpiks because of "Xpiks can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer", now this is solved and there shouldn't be any issues.

Also there's a new blogpost: How to upload video to Shutterstock https://xpiksapp.com/blog/2019/how-to-upload-video-shutterstock/

Let me know what do you think
