Re: 'Copy' data from custom field to label

Before testing as per your suggestion, I'm wondering how I will be able find all files with a custom field populated? Go to Catalog - By Image Details. Expand Your Custom Fields. Expand each field to review the data. catalog_by_image_details.PNG Presumably I would have to repeat that process for al...

Re: ImportDialog EventName is not working properly

I tested this, again, today. I chose a file name based on Event Name. I looked at the Custom defined to see if Event Name was %EventName or T EventName. It was T EventName. So, choosing one of the defaults that includes Event Name, creates T EventName. I can't help but think this needs to be enabled...

Re: 'Copy' data from custom field to label

Is the user chosen name of the custom field written to the file or only the variable data entered? Is the ics:portfolios data also written to the files? Thanks Chosen name: yes. Data: yes. Portfolios data: yes (I think, I don't use this feature, just tried it and I see it in the file's metadata). S...

Re: 'Copy' data from custom field to label

Preferences - Synchronize Settings - Automatically write out Catalog changes to the image file. If one performs this operation manually (right click - Metadata - Save Metadata to File), the custom fields will also be written to the file. Basically, they are no different than Headline, Description, ....

Re: 'Copy' data from custom field to label

I have version 3 and version 4 installed in parallel. I see your other post. I am on Windows. Is the process the same on a Mac? I don't know. I ran both side by side for a while, mirroring my workflow in both (yes, double the work) to ensure I understood what I had to do and everything worked. I sta...

Re: 'Copy' data from custom field to label

OK, I got it to work in version 3. Original lines: result.Width := 700 * result.DPIFactor; result.Height := 400 * result.DPIFactor; I am assuming the lines are present for high resolution monitors. I don't have a high resolution monitor. I changed them to: result.Width := 700; result.Height := 400;

Stephen - I just tried the script in a version 3 database and it didn't work here.

Re: 'Copy' data from custom field to label

Custom fields (which is custom XMP), via the Info panel, is written to the file if the setting is set to write XMP to the file. There isn't a setting to make them private. You can copy your existing custom fields to labels. It is a several step process. Not sure the script works in version 3, howeve...

Re: Image Rights management tool

Your comment about using custom fields and private labels is now clear as your screenshot appeared to be a label. I apologize I wasn't clear. The screenshot is a label, displaying how one can have specific data in their own "fields" (in this case labels). With labels, you can quickly filter on the ...

Re: script/recipe to generate copy as new version?

fbungarz - Have you tried the Share feature? Enable Sizing (at first) to enable some of the other options. Specifically, under Catalog Settings, enable "add result as a version of the original". Once everything is set up, disable Sizing. You will be prompted for a folder if you enabled "ask for targ...

Re: Image Rights management tool

But you can set any label to private too. Correct. Are you sure that you use custom fields and not private labels? I actually use both these days. I thought that customs fields were only visible from the Info view? Custom fields are custom XMP, which is written to the file (if that is enabled). Nat...

The fastest way to assign these new labels is probably by having the catalog view open and dragging the image(s) to the right labels. However, that conflicts with having the portfolio view open, which is my normal way of working.
I use the Assign panel.

Re: Image Rights management tool

If you write data to the file, the labels (keywords) will easily be accessible in other software. A custom field (custom XMP) ... probably not. Having said that I use custom fields.
