Topic: display meta data from images?

Hi, I am using the simple viewer wp plugin linked to next-gen.

When I load images, nextgen automatically is seeing the title / description / tags and saves them in the admin.

When I load the simple viewer gallery ot pulls the caption automatically, which is great!

See here


I have some questions
1. How to also pull through the keywords?
2. Does google see the image names etc in the simple viewer and can find the pages based on the text (I notice as its flash the words are not selectable with mouse)?
3. Can WordPress search pickup image keywords?

Thanks

Sam

Re: display meta data from images?

1. How to also pull through the keywords?

WP-SimpleViewer does not use the NextGEN 'Tags' field.
WP-SimpleViewer uses the NextGEN 'Description' field to populate the image's <caption>.
However, there is no corresponding place within a SimpleViewer gallery that could be used to store the tags.

2. Does google see the image names etc in the simple viewer and can find the pages based on the text (I notice as its flash the words are not selectable with mouse)?

Please see this Google blog entry for more information about how Google indexes Flash sites.

3. Can WordPress search pickup image keywords?

If you are referring to the NextGEN tags, perhaps the NextGEN Gallery Search plugin will be useful.
