I’m working on a workflow to bulk upload photos to Omeka, using the CSV Import plugin with a column that references a public URL where the photos are temporarily stored solely for the purpose of getting them into Omeka. This works fine — I am able to upload hundreds of photos at once. My problem is that when I look at the photos in Omeka, they include as the “Original Filename” the entire URL for the temporary version of each photo. Example, using photos that were uploaded to a raw.githubusercontent.com address:
This URL is a link, but it links to a version of the photo that is on our Omeka server, not the raw.githubusercontent.com server. The raw.githubusercontent.com URL is also displayed prominently on the public page for the item. I can’t find any way to change the value for “Original Filename” for an item. Is there a way to change this, either before or after uploading the photos to Omeka?
