WS-FileConvertor 1.0c - Convert images to text and upload into SharePoint




I have made some changes in the previous version and now users can also upload the original files along with the converted text files into the SharePoint.

FileConvertor version 3

Click here to download this tool.

For your convenience, you can create two different views in SharePoint library to show image and text files separately. For example, if the source image files are of GIF type, then you can create a view with the following filter settings:

Show only items when the following is true:

Column Name: Name

Condition: Contains

Text: gif
You can make this view the default view and it will only show the image files. Similarly, create another view that will only show the text files.

What to expect next? Capability to extract metadata from the converted text files and uploading the original image files along with the extracted meta data. This will allow users to upload only the image files without the need to upload the text files. The common words extracted from the converted text files will be uploaded as metadata. This will allow users to search image files using keywords.
