The release was made generally available on 5th September 2020, it extends the ability for data from the XMP & EXIF metadata standards to be mapped onto Picturepark metadata fields and to be written back into files. An additional key focus of the release includes the introduction of context-aware search suggestions.
The extended support for writing of XMP & EXIF values means that those using Picturepark can choose whether to: map metadata from content as they import it, write it into a file as it is exported or do so in both directions to keep things synchronized. It enables users of Picturepark to manage metadata easily and ensures those who are using exported files to have up-to-date metadata.

The search suggestions assist users as they type, by providing a preview of any existing auto-completed content based on context-aware metadata assignments.

Product Marketing Manager at Picturepark, Olivia Schütt said the following regarding the new release: “We know that metadata is vital to our customers in helping them achieve their aims of having strictly structured content, which is why metadata improvements to better support the XMP and EXIF standards are at the core of this new release. We’re also pleased to be able to offer search suggestions, as we know how important it is to find content quickly - and in context; used in combination with our powerful Semantic Relationships, Picturepark users can find what they’re looking for faster than ever before.”
