Can Gravity Forms write to IPTC meta data of uploaded photo?

  1. Walking home last night thinking about a photos submission contest I am proposing for a client I came up with this question for Gravity Forms.

    If I setup a gravity form so that people could submit photos via a file upload and the mutli-line text field was automatically written to the photos IPTC Photo Meta Data Caption field.

    Is that possible?

    For those who don't know IPTC info (short for International Press Telecommunications Council) is the Photo Meta data that accompanies all digital photos taken by your camera.

    You would have to write the customization to do this using PHP and our hooks system.
