new jalbum tool: export metadata to a textfile

Sometimes I feel the need to perform some statistic operations on the metadata in an album, like when I want to know which focal lenght I used most during a session or so.
You can use external tools, like ExifRead, to do this, but I thought it would be conveniënt to have a tool for it in jalbum. The tool produces a textfile with the most common metadata values from exif, iptc & jpeg. The fields are separated with semi-colons (;) to make it easy to import the file in worksheets (Excel, OpenOffice scalc etc) and/or databases.
I just used some common metadata tags, if you have wishes to have access to more tags you can simply modify the script, or ask me to add the tag.

The attached bsh file should be placed in the jalbum program directory, subfolder Tools, and (after restarting jalbum) show up in the Tools/External tools menu named as 'Metadata to textfile'.

regards,
Tom

I think you need your own JTV.

That is Jalbum Tool Viewer. Maybe Alan has some ideas....

LOL :0

The JSV is enough for me right now, thank you very much. Perhaps TomCee's next tool will be a tool explorer?!?!

I discovered an error when iterating through a multi-level album; now corrected. Also added a field selection dialog (just as a fun exercise :) ).
