IPTC metadata
on Oct 15, 2013 at 3:59:28 pm

I'm trying to see in CatDV some ITPC metadata that i've enter in others software (Adobe Bridge, XnView, ACD See), but it's not working except for the fields Description, that is the fields "Information" in CatDV... Can anyone help me?

I'm on CatDV v9 on a mac.

Are you using a server version or stand alone? And have you enabled the metadata columns?


If it's standalone then you need to make sure "ENable Metadata columns" is checked in the "Metadata Columns" preferences area.

On server connected versions "Metadata columns" is under the "Field Definitions" preference pane.

If you have the "other" tab exposed in the Details Panels, it should be there.

If not, look at your prefs under Details Panel and you can enable it there.

Thanks Bryson, it's there, half of the fields I'm looking for are there. IF've find the Creator (Artist in CatDV), Description (Information in CatDV), and Copyright fields but did'nt find any matching fields in CatDV for Source, Keyword and Location (in Bridge, XnView and ACD See)

There are several missing IPTC fields, and what you do see won't all be as you'd expect to see IPTC data. Their names will be prefixed with IPTC4

Sublocation is a metadata field, source is missing and keywords are not IPTC but also do not show in the default view.

In your tabs, create a new tab called IPTC and when choosing your fields in which to add, hit the I key when a field is selected. Scroll down to see the IPTC fields available. Add them to your tab and save.

These are the present IPTC4 fields in CDV. You'll have to edit them in order to have them display something meaningful.

This will only work for embedded files, i.e. if you work with sidecar XMP (RAW Workflow) these files will appear as a separate file in CDV and will not relate to its image file. Hence, would recommend using Lightroom, Photo mechanic, Bridge, Capture one etc
