Are you importing into Filemaker or using file references?
Filemaker imports EXIF data only when you import from a digital camera or a memory device. You could probably use AppleScript for this, or a plugin.
I tried both. First I tried a filelink and then I tried direct image import. None of them worked.
Thanks for your suggestion.
Do you know of any plugin or applescript which is available.
If I have to write an applescript, any advice?
As for Applescript: IIRC, you can use the Image Events applcation to extract the EXIF data, but I never explored this in detail. This is not a Filemaker-only issue, so you should be able to find out more by googling +applescript +EXIF.
I haven't done much with this either; don't even have a digital camera. There has been some recent discussion on the Macscripter forum. There is an awesome, but seriously geeky open source command line tool:
If you want to see what the simpler Image Events can get you, try this AppleScript. You can comment/uncomment lines to try it out. Change the return line also.
(Image Events is a hidden background application on every modern Mac.)
set theFile to choose file
tellapplication "Image Events"
set theImage to open theFile
-- see what you can get
--set theSpace to value of metadata tag "space" of theImage
--set theSpace to color space of theImage
-- the above 2 return the same thing; color space is available directly
