Automatically Extracting Metadata from the Document Properties of any Document Type

The document properties of a document can be automatically extracted into metadata fields for a defined schema when an extraction rule for that file type is configured. Since all document types have properties, you can extract metadata from any type of document. This is useful for file types such as images where you can extract information such as the size of the picture, the camera type, exposure time, resolution, and so on directly from the file.
