Stephen - I just tried the script in a version 3 database and it didn't work here.
But your signature states that you are using version 3! ???

Re: 'Copy' data from custom field to label

Yes, I want to copy data from existing (private, catalog only) custom fields and create new private labels from them or map to existing private labels. Your screen shot looks like a useful feature when making labels, but I cannot find that feature for custom fields in the Info panel.

'Copy' data from custom field to label

I have been using custom fields to record some confidential data, but not want to transfer this data to labels.

Does anybody know how it could be done please?

Re: Image Rights management tool

Naturally, nobody wants this private information to appear in a file which might be later distributed to other parties. Thus, before distribution, some metadata should be stripped during export or after export. That is error prone however, so I would prefer not to write this internal data to the fi...

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. But you can set any label to private too. Naturally, nobody wants this private information to appear in a file which ...

Re: Image Rights management tool

What is the consensus here on using a label over a custom field for this task, apart from the obvious possibly of creating dependencies when using labels, i.e. "sub labels"? The fastest way to assign these new labels is probably by having the catalog view open and dragging the image(s) to the right ...

Re: Image Rights management tool

Frank, I can hazard a guess as to why you used a category, as if you are using the Darwin Core, you might not have easy access to the copyright fields available in the “Advanced” profile. Your method also allows you to see the copyright terms and the photographer in one place, which is quite useful....

Re: Image Rights management tool

Thank you Frank, that looks very interesting.

Incidentally did you use this with version 3 too? I'm still using 3 and cannot upgrade for a few months, but would like to solve this beforehand.

Image Rights management tool

Does anybody use PSu as an image rights management tool? Being a database containing all of ones images, it would appear to be logical. I tested this by adding a custom field. This can be then filled with i.e. “AB date” to indicate that a particular customer licensed the image on the said date. Howe...

Re: label duplication in "Miscellaneous" category

Maybe you could try to revoke assigned labels and save data to file before cascading them. Not sure as I don't cascade.

Re: Export list of file names

I intend to upgrade but I'm shooting on location until April so I prefer to keep variables to a minimum ;-)
