Add search by metadata (keywords) option

Add search by metadata (keywords) option

All photographers and media creators embed keywords and other IPTC metadata to their files so it is easily searchable through Adobe Lightroom, Adobe bridge and many other file management programs. It would be a huge asset to be able to search my dropbox photo files for file images marked with specific keywords. It would also help one of my client archives that I manage immensely to search their asset in this fashion.

 

Thank you

I added Meta Data tags to my files on my Mac computer. When you upload them to dropbox, those tags aren't searchable any more. Please add that feature. Also, Facebook, Amazon Photos and iPhones have the technology to recognize faces. Dropbox is really behind if they aren't offering that feature.

Agreed - Searching on faces or IPTC Metadata is a great feature
