Well, one option you might explore is extracting metadata from images
using exiftool (http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/) to a CSV
or TXT file and then convert this file to what ever tool or file format
(xml) you use for batch import to your CMS. So semi-automated.
We currently do the reverse, embed metadata into images and then ingest
to our IR (DSpace).
hope this helps,
