Add Person to "Persons shown"
« on: October 15, 2020, 11:59:49 PM »
Dear all,

I "bought" the new PhotoMechanic Plus and I like it very much! Thank you for this new version! I hardly don't use Lightroom anymore for managing the metadata in the files.

One thing I can't find:
If I want to add a person to more than 1 picture, how to do that? On the Metadata Template there is no possibility for adding a person: it will remove all excisting names.
I thought I do it this way: {persons}, newname but that isn't succesfull.


Thanks in advance!

Adding them as needed in the Metadata Info window is currently the way to go.  We have a task on our list to add an append checkbox for Persons Shown in the Metadata Template.

Hi Kirk,

If you use the same method as "Keywords" than it's perfect! Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
