    Thanks Gwyn,

    I hope that our discussion is noticed in appropriate Adobe places. If I may be permitted pedantically to quibble, I was not intending to make a “complaint” to fotoLibra, only an enquiry. After all, how could I want to complain about the excellent fotoLibra – no complaints at all!

    Best wishes,


    P.S. You did tell me nicely.

  2. Hi,

    The meta data thing is a pain but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and make the best of a bad job (Adobe not fotoLibra!). I upload as normal knowing that info has been stripped and create my meta data within fotoLibra, at the same time I create a text file – with a specific and descriptive name – containing all the data (pus the derivatives; I might have to adjust the description of keywords for different images so I save these variations as well), and save this to my hard drive. I simply cut and paste from this file into any relevant images.

    The beauty of this method is that I can access any of these text files for images that require similar descriptions or keywords whenever I want.
