AfterShot Pro How To Transfer Metadata And Keyword Sets

 

Information

Keywords are words that can be associated with image files. They are used to help search and filter through many images. For example, keywords can be added to identify image content, client or job, or the location where images were taken.

Keyword sets allow to quickly display a group of keywords that are meaningful to the set of images that are being worked with. Similar keywords can be grouped together in a set to show that set in the Keyword Sets section. This means that keywords can be assigned quickly by clicking them in the Keyword Sets section rather than retyping them each time in the Keywords section. Keywords within a keyword set can come from anywhere in a keyword hierarchy. For example, a keyword set can be made that includes all the family members that went on vacation together, destination names, and any other subject matter relating to the image.

Photo Metadata, or information about pictures, can make searching and finding images much faster and easier. Metadata simply refers to the information about images, including data recorded by a camera, such as the time, date, exposure, shutter speed, and aperture. It is also possible to add metadata to photos to record what the subject is and the location. Professional photographers can even include client information.
