Hi, I'm Omar, and I'm a programmer. Today, I'm going to show you how to import metadata from photos onto keywords in your WordPress blog. So naturally, the first thing you want to do is log in to your WordPress. As you see, I've already done so here. I'll explain to you step-by-step what to do. So the first thing you need to do is go to add a new plugin. The plugin you're going to want to add is called Next Gen Gallery. So go ahead and search for that plugin. It should be the first one to appear. Click on, "install," and press "okay" to confirm that you want to install that plugin. After it's done, installing, just click on, "activate plugin." Once you have it activated on the left-hand side, you'll notice that there is a new button called, "gallery." Go over there and click on, "add gallery/images." We're going to add a new gallery called test, and we're going to upload our image to that. We obviously need at least one image to upload to import the metadata from. So now you are in a page called, "upload images." You click, "select files," to select an image you want to upload, you choose a gallery that you want to upload it to. In our case, it's test, and go ahead and click, "upload images." Once it has completed uploading, it will make the thumbnails, which it's doing now, and once it's done, you can go to manage gallery. It will show you that one picture has been successfully added. So you go to manage gallery after that, and on the next page, you should see your image and the author would be your username. So, you click the select box right next to your image, and go ahead on the top where it says, "bulk actions," scroll down and click, "import metadata." Click, "apply." It's going to ask you if you want to start the bulk edit for the number of galleries that you chose. Click, "okay," and after a small amount of time, for us it's really small because there's just one image, for you it might be longer, but on the top it should say, "operation successful," and clear your browser cache. Once it says that, you know you're done, and you've imported metadata onto keywords using Next Gen Gallery. I'm Omar, and I just showed you how to import metadata onto keywords in your WordPress blog. Thanks for watching.
