Really basicPhoto Mechanic question

Discussion in 'Apple/Mac' started by Rich Gibson, Jul 19, 2008.

  1. Believe it or not I can't find how to view the IPTC information. I've found out how to import it, copy, it paste it, but not just "look" at what's there for a image. Would someone illuminate me please? I'm probably missing something incredibly obvious.

    OK this isn't hard, but isn't obvious either. What you have to do:

    Edit -> Set Info Text (this is what shows the time, date, all the exif data)

    Then select "variables"

    Then select "keywords,keyw"

    Add this line to the end (or wherever you want to put it): Keywords: {keywords}

    Click OK and you should see all your keywords in the EXIF data box.

    You can do this with whatever IPTC data you want, as long as it appears in the IPTC fields as an option under Variables. This is one way, and you can just view as much or as little IPTC information as you want.

    Click on th 'i'

    Open PM, load up a folder of photos.
    Hover over the photos, and 4 icons will appear over the photo, the top 2 will allow you to rotate the photo, The bottom right one opens up the individual photo and the bottom left one opens the IPTC info.

    Hope this helps...
  4. :redface: Told you it was a dumb one. I looked over that entire darn screen but never noticed the corners when passing over the individual images. Thanks very much.

    That's a good tip. You asked a dumb question, but I'm the one who feels stupid LOL :)
