Our recommendation is to store images in MetaShare like any other type of document. If you are considering storing all your images in one place, our recommendation is to create a specific MetaShare workspace, using a unique workspace configuration with a rich media content type, e.g. “Image” that automatically extracts the EXIF metadata that is stored in the images’ file properties.
Here you have a list of the file properties that is being extracted (as of 2021-09-01) and to what SharePoint column they will be extracted to.
|Image file property||SharePoint column||Description|
|Date Taken||Date Picture Taken|
|Tags||Keywords, Enterprise Keywords||This property is copied to two SharePoint column, “Keywords” that is a text column and “Enterprise Keywords” that is managed metadata column.|
|-na-||Location||Special list column generated by Microsoft Ai based on file GPS data.|
|-na-||Tags (soon to be renamed to “Image Tags”)||Special list column generated by Microsoft Ai based on image recognition.|
|-na-||Extracted Text||Special list column generated by Microsoft Ai with text found in image based on image recognition.|

- Switch views by clicking on the drop-down for views, on the top right-hand side of the document list, and selecting the “Tiles” view:
