« on: June 26, 2006, 10:27:23 AM »

Imagefolio (http://www.imagefolio.com) also uses custom IPTC fields.  They are labeled as "custom1" . . . "custom20".  Anyway to implement these in PM?

Sure, but not by an end user.  I would have to add that.  The IPTC dialogs are going to get a makeover in the 4.5 version.

Hi Kirk,
Will the IPTC in 4.5 include the fields I can see in photoshops file info?
 I refer to the dropdown menu for copyrighted/unknkown/public  and the URL field.

I plan to support IPTC4XMP Core fields.  I don't have the spec with me right now, but I'd guess that they're there.
