Replacing IPTC
« on: January 15, 2007, 08:58:17 PM »
When I tried to update the IPTC info of files, for which the IPTC info was added during import, PM would only addthe new IPTC information without clearing the previous information.

Is there a replacement, delete option for IPTC info that shouldn't be there?

Thanks

Rose,

Sorry for the long delay in replying, but you posted your question in an area of the forums that I don't often look at.  I have moved your posting to a more appropriate section.

When using the IPTC Stationery Pad, only the fields that have the checkboxes (to the left of each field) will be applied.  So if you want to clear out a particular field, put a check mark in its checkbox and delete all of the text in the field.

When the IPTC Stationery Pad is applied, those checked fields that are blank will also be blank in the destination photos.

HTH,
