In this 1-hour session, Scott will share a custom Switch flow that transforms a collection of newly captured images [files] into data-enriched assets that are ready for action! Scott will describe the methodology of the Flow while explaining in detail how he used the Switch Metadata, Database and Scripting modules to automate a tedious, error-prone process.

You'll see and learn how Switch employs industry standards and specifications such as

  • eXtensible Markup Language (XML)
  • eXtensible Metadata Platform (XMP)
  • Structured Query Language (SQL)
  • Javascript

to 'power' its comprehensive collection of tools and third-party Configurators.
