How to Upload Metadata and Releases





Preparing metadata of images is one of the most essential work for photographers and other content creators. Metadata is the key to keep the copyrights safe and make your hard work properly organized. Today, we brought a detailed demonstration of how to register your metadata spreadsheet and releases on the contributor website.



First of all, you need to prepare a well-arranged metadata spreadsheet where the Media code matches the Model code and Property code.




* Check out how the metadata looks first!


Metadata for TongRo
.csv
Download CSV • 173B



  • Media code: filename of the image

  • Model code: filename of the model release

  • Property code: filename of the property release



* If you don't have releases to submit, filling in only 'Media code' and 'keywords' is enough for uploading.








Put the filenames of the images under 'MediaCode' including the format.







Put ‘MR’ / ‘PR’ under 'ModelRelease' / 'PropertyRelease' to indicate that there are releases to be uploaded. And then, put the filename of the release under 'ModelCode' / 'Property Code.'



* If you have multiple releases for one image, you can put more filenames of the releases in the same cell with a comma.









If your metadata is ready to go, log in to the contributor website, and upload your images. When you reach to Step-2, click 'Upload Metadata.'









Open the metadata file,









then you can see the file is added.

Click register to complete the process.








Click the blue button('confirm') when this message pops up.







Once the file is registered, you will see the filename on the right bottom of the page.







Now, it's time for the releases. Just as same as you did with the metadata, click 'Upload releases' and open the file.










If you see the file in the 'Added files' box, click 'Register' to finalize the process.







Click the blue button('confirm') when this message pops up.



The same process goes with the property releases on the 'Property release' tap.



When everything is done, you’ll see the releases well registered on the right bottom of the page.







Just follow this instruction step by step! It will make things a lot easier.

Also, the releases you upload will stay in your account, so you can re-apply them to other images in the future. If you find this process too complicated for you, please contact us at international@tongro.co.kr. We will help you out at any time.
