IPTC editing in NX

Discussion in 'Nikon Capture and View NX' started by bvonarx, Mar 26, 2007.

  1. Back filing IPTC info in NX can be a real hassle, is there an autofill feature for the fields, other than keywords, and if so how do you turn on that feature? Also, how do you delete entries (misspellings etc) in the dropdown keywords list?
    I've looked at the online guide and Jason's book but no info is available, am I missing something?

    I am copying/pasting settings but that is not a very elegant solution.

    Many thanks

    Not sure, haven't really played with the IPTC, but have you tried to save them as settings. See the gears on the bottom left.
    Regarding changing misspellings, all I could figure out was to delete and add again.

    Nikon have always had trouble with there IPTC implementation. When i could get it to work it was slow. You best option is to use a program like Photo Mechanic which supports all of the IPTC data and is very quick.

    Hope that helps.
