Associate photos, in order taken, with text list

I have a client who has auctions, he lists around 300 items for each auction. He takes photos of each lot. What we want to do is allow him to take the photos in order on his camera according to the lot sheet, then upload all the images and have them identified or even at least captioned in wordpress according to the lot sheet/number.

So the lot sheet might read:

lot1 table
lot2 printer
lot3 desk

So he then goes along with his camera and photographs the table, then the printer then the desk. He uploads these pics to lets say a wordpress gallery and theres a lot sheet somewhere associated with the gallery and the captions are pulled from the lot sheet. All camera have numbered images and just working with the starting point being the lowest image number/name would work I think

He wants this to go even further and have each item listed as part of an online auction which would also just take a lot sheet and the photos and automatically create all the auctions and add the image to each one. I see this option as being a lot harder though…

You might need to explain the format of a “lot sheet” a bit more. TBH, this is the sort of thing I would want to sort out before uploading anything, but perhaps that’s just me (I’m not into automation.)

Hi, well the lot sheet can be just as simple as text on the page.

So:
lot1 table
lot2 printer
lot3 desk
etc etc etc

Then a gallery at the top of the page, perhaps something very useful would be the caption coming from this lot sheet automatically.
