Chapter 6. Understanding Metadata > Cleaning Up Metadata Templates

Cleaning Up Metadata Templates

Thomas's code is almost invariably pretty darn bulletproof by the time it gets seen by alpha testers, let alone by the public at large, but I dislike the idea of applying bogus metadata to thousands of image—it just seems like a Bad Idea. So let's take a look at a typical metadata template, and go through the process of slimming down so it only contains the information I really need.

When you save Metadata Templates, Photoshop saves them in a dedicated folder. Rather than typing the lengthy path names for both Mac and Windows, I'll show you the simplest way to find your saved templates. Just select a file, choose File Info from the File Browser's File menu, and then, in the File Info dialog box, pull down the flyout menu at upper right and choose Show Templates—see Figure 6-10.
