Often all the images in a Dataset will have some data in common. Rather than inputing the same information over and over again. There is a script to automate this.
Adding the key-value pairs to the Description
To add the same key-value pairs to all the images in a Dataset:
Select the dataset
Fold down the Dataset Details tab and click the edit icon . You can resize this window to make it easier to see.
In the description add the following line (if is not already there) # global key-value
Below this add key-values separated by colons:
After the key value pairs end with # end key-value
CLICK SAVE, don't forget this - it is easy to lose what you have just typed in by clicking on something else.
Here is an example you can cut and paste in to the Description Details. Modify the keys and values for your data.
# global key-valueLabBookID : 10LabBookPage : 10Organism : Pseudomonas aeruginosaTemperature : 25# end key-value
Run the script
1. From the Run Script icon select MIF > Key-Value from Description...
2. The ID of the Dataset will already be filled in for you, just click Run Script.
If the script is successful there will be a green tick and a message with the number of key-value pairs added and the number of images. If you click on one on the images and fold down the Key-Value Pairs tab you can see the metadata added.
