    hi,
    i times of social media it’s more and more important to annotate images.
    in terms of social media to use hashtags.

    i’m searching for a plugin / script / app to convert automatically IPTC data like metadata like keywords, sublocation, description, headline to hashtags on export.

    does anybody have a workaround or solution?

    Are you just exporting the photos to the hard drive? If so, where would you want those hashtags stored?

    You might be able to do it for Instagram with the LrInstagram plugin; I think you can make a template that might convert keywords, although I haven't explored it, and just add then manually to the caption. LR/Instagram - Lightroom Publish Plugin for Instagram The Search Replace Transfer plugin by Mr. Beardsworth might work, depending on where you wanna put the hashtags. AFAIK they don't have a standardized locale in image files.

    I seem to recall it's a publish service; I'm not sure it includes the hashtags when using File>Export. Does it work for you when you publish to Instagram?

    Thanks Rob ... I figured out where the problem was. yes i am using LR/Instagram and #hashtag is the field from it. Now when i directly publish my RAW file to LR/Instagram, it works perfectly fine, but when i export to a jpeg file, hashtag field information is not included in the metadata [probably because its not LR field].

    the reason i wanted to export to jpeg is to have file with a low resolution on my FB and IG Accounts. any other way around will be appreciated.

    Why not just export the jpeg then import it as a separate file, then add the hashtag and publish?

    can do that but then every time i change the place for publish needs to reenter the information. e.g. when post to 500px in full resolution need to copy paste information again.

    also this method will need me to every time enter information again at the time of posting.
