Attaching a field to a image name

Hi all,

I have a table of images from a shared hosted feature service which I was able to extract to a folder locally through a script available online. However, this script just extracted the images with the image title

ie. image0-20210902-154626 and so forth

I also have a related point feature class for this table where each point has an image attached to it. What I would like to do is extract the images but use a field in the feature class as a name for each image instead of 

image0-20210902-154626 or

field name + image0-20210902-154626

Is there a way to do this?

Did you actually mean for 1 field (lets call it ImgName for example) you want to store the image name for its point, so names are stored in rows, a spoofed example below?



Do your points already exist or do they need creating? If they exist what is their relationship with the image, are they centroids for example?

Thank you for your reply. 

I was able to use the Join and Relates tool to join my point feature table to the attachments table, then I was able to copy the field to my attachment table. This allowed me to modify that script to extract the field I needed along with the attachments. Mission accomplished!
