XMP/IPTC Tab
« on: February 03, 2010, 04:53:17 AM »
Kirk,
I am an amateur photographer and my workflow is as follows:
I shoot Canon Raw and I only use DPP and PM.
In PM:
Ingest, rename, apply IPTC, Keywords, label and tag.
In DPP:
If necessary, crop, adjust white balance, picture style and noise reduction. Then I save in DPP (not convert and save, unless I'm going to print the pic or send to a web site, in which case I convert and save as jpeg - maximum quality).
My questions are:
Do you think my workflow is reasonable?
What should be the configuration of the XMP/IPTC tab? The default one? If not, could you post the correct configuration for such a workflow?
I have a MacBook with Snow Leopard.
Thanks in advance,
Luiz Muzzi

Sounds fine to me.  It appears to be working for you just fine as it is.

Thanks for your quick reply, Kirk.
Now, when I do exactly that, PM cannot read the changes I've made with DPP (for example, white balance).
What am I doing wrong? I am using the default configuration for the XMP/IPTC tab.
Thanks again,
Luiz Muzzi
