Customize IPTC Info Panel?
« on: November 01, 2018, 03:44:49 pm »
Is there a way to customize the IPTC Info panel so that only the items I wish to edit are visible (or at the top of the list). I have scanned several thousand photos and wish to add/edit: 1) Description/Caption, 2) Keywords, 3) adjust the Time & Date.

You can certainly customize that text, but it is for display purposes only.  To edit the metadata while in the Preview window, press the 'i' key.

I thought I would clarify what I was looking to do by sending a mock-up of the screen I would like to see. My goal is not to have to scroll so down to modify the date and time... and if possible hide the fields I do not want to use.

Customize IPTC Info & Customize IPTC Stationery These dialogs allow you to control what fields appear in the IPTC Info and Stationery Pads, how those fields are shown in Photo Mechanic, and even how big the text fields is for data entry.
