Tick box use with photoshop
« on: June 13, 2015, 11:48:25 PM »
Hi.  When editing my pictures I use the tick box option to select which ones I want.  I then open them in photoshop.  When finished working on them in photoshop I close them down and go back into photo mechanic where the tick has gone.  This way I know which ones I have worked on.  Since upgrading to the latest version of photo mechanic this no longer happens. Is there something I should change in preferences?  thanks

No.  Photoshop no longer eliminates our data now that we put it in XMP (or IPTC if you have PM creating IPTC for you).

Older versions of Photo Mechanic put those settings only at the end of a JPEG file.  Photoshop did not preserve that information when it would update/rewrite a JPEG and as such it would be lost.  PM5 now puts that same information only in the metadata of the file which Photoshop preserves when it updates a file.
