  • Read meta data from database

    Given the full qualified filename of a catalogued file, how can I read all meta data from the database using the SDK?

    Thanks for reading, Glitch

    You will find details of the SDK here https://www.acdsee.io/sdk/
    Documentation and examples are included in the download zip file.

    The SDK is for C/C++ programmers who wish to write plug-ins for ACDSee Photo Studio.
    It assumes you are proficient in the C/C++ programming language and its tools. The source code files in this SDK are written for Microsoft’s Visual Studio on Windows.

    Note that the SDK was last updated in March 2020.

    Edit:
    Not done using SDK, but perhaps just using Tools\Database\Export and in the Export Wizard set the radio button to "Export Database information to a text file and then tick "Include keyword definitions master file list, and also tick "Include all category definitions" would provide much of the information you want.

    Another option is described here

    That applies to the items listed, which if Image Well were used should nominally include all of the images in the database.

      I want to read the database files without using AC! I read it's some kind of firebase, but that not the whole story.
