Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding metadata to batches of images, part of Learn Photo Management: Metadata.
- As you're updating the metadata for your photos,…I'm sure you're going to run into situations…where you want to add the same metadata values…to multiple images at the same time.…For example you might want to add the…same keywords to multiple images.…In basic concept, this is very simple.…You select multiple images and you…update whatever metadata you would like to…add or change for those various images…but in some cases you might have…an extra step involved, and something to be aware of,…specifically in this case with Adobe Lightroom…and that relates to the loop view…versus the grid view and how Lightroom…considers you to be working with your photos.…
Are you working with multiple images…or just a single image?…Let's take a look at an example here.…I have a series of photographs…captured in the same basic location,…in this case Monhegan Island in Maine…and I've selected the first image in the sequence,…I'll then hold the Shift key…and click on the last image in that sequence…so now I've selected a total of eight images,…
Metadata may not be glamorous, but it's a priceless tool for managing and organizing photos. Your camera records metadata with every shot: the date, time, camera and lens settings, and much more. You can also add metadata using programs like Adobe Lightroom.
In this course, photographer, author, and educator Tim Grey demystifies metadata, describing what it is and showing how it's an essential part of photo management, from categorizing photos to creating fun searches, such as "show me all the photos I took a year ago today."
