Suggestion: Add just IPTC Keywords

Post by SpeedDevil » Mon Sep 20, 2010 12:09 am

I'd like to suggest a way where we could add JUST IPTC Keywords to a bunch of pictures.

I had selected some pictures and chosen edit IPTC/XMP and added a few keywords, but then all the pictures got the description from the first picture as well, and that wasn't quite what i expected. :D

You can use the category panel to change keywords on a lot of pictures, or in IPTC dialog do you have used 'Clear' before changing keywords?

No I didn't use clear, but if I did use clear wouldn't that remove the comments?

Hang on I'll check.

Oh, apparently it doesn't remove the comment. I didn't know that.

By default the IPTC dialog load IPTC from the first file, so if you want to write IPTC on many files, you must clear the fields before...
