Convert and Migrate: TIFF to PDF and Metadata

  Asked By: Tucker    Date: Aug 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3060

I need to find an approach to convert thousands of complex Tiff files
(1 file=1 to many pages)published in SharePoint to PDF format while
migrating the associated SharePoint metadata to the PDF properties.
The final PDF file, with the metadata in the properites would not
remain in SharePoint. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Pretty much sounds like a custom development job. I don’t know of any tools that would do something like this. The good thing is that a) there’s lots of documentation on PDF format  and libraries to read metadata  and b) you’ll be working in NET writing to SharePoint and it’s all basic list or doclib creation with custom fields for your metadata. The migration will take longer than writing the tool I would think.

I have been looking at Metalogix Migration tools for SharePoint which deal a lot with metadata. Not sure if it’s a fit as I’m still trying to figure it out but you might want to take a look:

There are several products on the market that I believe are capable of this.
Autostore and Kofax Ascent come to mind - althoght I believe there are
others as well.
