I have many thousands of images within a folder and its subfolders. Each subfolder contains other subfolders. In Windows, I'm using the command line and the
exiftool to extract a few pieces of metadata from these images, and export them into a CSV file for later use.
From the command line, I set my directory to the highest-level at which these folders exist, and ran this code:
exiftool -csv -CreateDate -Keywords *.jpg > data.csv
It works, creating a file with metadata from the images in the top-level directory - but it only extracts data for files in the top-level directory. I can't find any mention after many attempts at searching of how to specify that I want to extract data from the images in all of the subdirectories as well. I imagine this is a straightforward fix, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. Thanks in advance for helping out a novice.
