Alright now let's take a look at how to work with our metadata here inside of Bridge CS3 and what metadata is, is the series of information that's built into your file automatically by your camera when you actually shoot the photograph that you bring into Bridge.
For instance, let's go ahead and take a look at the metadata for this file. This Flower Orange-2.jpg. I will increase the Metadata pane here, so you can actually see exactly what metadata is. For instance, it's got the Filename, Document Size, Application, Date Created, Date Modified, File Size, Dimensions; it's got all kinds of information in here. Resolution, it's got Bit Depth, Color Mode, Color Profile, all of this information is embedded parametrically in this file and any time you use that file, anywhere in any other application or anything like that, this metadata comes with that file. So it's kind of like a little description card that's permanently attached to this image.
So what we want to do is we want to take some of this metadata and we want to add to it. For instance, there is no copyright notice for this particular file. So we want to go ahead and add a copyright notice to this. We want to add it in such a way that it becomes a template so that we can use it on multiple files as well.
So what I am going to do is I am going to come up here to File menu, I am going to choose File, come all the way down and choose File Info. Now inside this dialog box you have the ability to add many different things. You have the ability to add Document title, Author, Author Title, Description Writer, Copyright Status and all kinds of things like that. However, we don't want to add a document title simply because all of these are going to be titled something completely different.
So all we want to do is fill in the Author. In this case, we are going to call this John Doe and we will give him the title of photographer and then we will come down here and we will say Copyright Status, we will say Copyrighted and we will go ahead and fill this in as 2007 and then I am also going to come up here and I am going to select IPTC Status and for Right Usage Terms I will say All Rights Reserved. Now we have got all that information filled in, you could go through here and you could check all the rest of this data, if you wanted to.
For instance, this was shot with an NIKON D80, see here all this metadata that we have here is still stored parametrically with this file. So if you wanted to check all that, you could certainly do so or you could actually add in some categories, supplemental data that you wanted to add and you can go through and add any of those. For this particular file, we are only going to add the Copyright Status. Then we are going to come down here and we are going to choose Save Metadata Template. When we do that I will just fill this in as John Doe. Fill ahead and I now click Save and now that's saved as a metadata template that we can apply to any number of these files here.
So I will go ahead and click OK and now we are ready to apply this to the rest of those flower images. So let's go ahead. We will select all of the rest of them and I am just going to do that Shift+Clicking all the rest of these files, like so and I will select these last two by Ctrl+Clicking, like so and now we are going to come back underneath the File menu.
This time we will go down to File Info again and I am going to come down here and I am going to select John Doe from this flyout as my metadata template and when I do that you will see here it fills in John Doe, Photographer, Copyrighted 2007. It leaves the Description and Keywords as Multiple values and maintains all the rest of the values for these specific files which is really nice that it does that for you.
The IPTC Status, Copyright 2007, All Rights Reserved. So everything should be okay. We will go ahead now and we will click OK and now for each one of those individual files, that File Info should be there. So let's just select one of these files at random to make sure that it stuck and we will go ahead and choose File>File Info one more time and there is all of our metadata correctly placed right there inside that file as it is for the rest of the files there in the content window.
So that's just how to quickly and easily append the metadata and also how to create a metadata template so that you can sink your edits across the board here inside the Bridge.
