Hello!
I need to add some properties in my repository..

I created a new content and aspects according to the following tuttorials:
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Data_Dictionary_Guide
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Displaying_Custom_Metadata
and added some properties..

My difficulty is here..I want to add some more properties but I want them to be depended on the kind of the file that is added.
For example if it is a pdf file, the user should be able to add a summary of the pdf, or
if it is a jpg file the user should be able to add resolution (something that will not have any point in the case of a pdf file).

I couldn t find how alfresco is recognize the kind of the file.. and if/how properties of a file can be changed/added.
Have you got any idea of how this can be done???
