- We've identified the images…in the current directory structure,…and stored their location and file names in an array.…The results show the images are .jpgs with one exception,…it's this one here which is a .png.…To get the captions from each image,…we need to extract the metadata.…I'm going to start with extracting the metadata from a .jpg.…So let's just select one of these .jpgs here,…it doesn't matter which one, and then Copy that value,…go back to the editing program, create a new .php file,…save it as, "metadata.php",…and then assign that value to a variable.…
I'm using Windows, so PHP has inserted…backslashes in the path.…PHP on Windows works both with backslashes…and with forward slashes in paths.…If you're on Mac or a Linux, of course,…it will be forward slashes only.…Let's start by getting the Exif metadata.…So we'll save that as "exif" and then we'll use…the exif_read_data function, and pass it the image.…The image must be a .jpg or a .tiff.…And this returns an array,…which we can inspect with print_r.…
