It’s one of the things that’s been bugging me from the beginning (yeah, I know, this should’ve really been part I 😉 ).
You spend all your good time to make presets of your import metadata.
You carefully type down the Creator’s name, address, location, website, copyright, etc. etc. and you save it as a unique preset.
That should save me a good amount of work in the future! Aaahh…
But then… I make a new catalog (or want to add images to another catalog). I switch, Lightroom closes, restarts and…
All my presets are gone?
Basically I have to make a new preset for every catalog I make. I’m sorry, Adobe, but what kind of amateurish programming is that? Do you really think that if I buy a piece of software which is supposed to automate and speed up my workflow I want to re-type that kind of IPTC information for every single catalog I’m creating? This is one of the first things that should work cross-catalog, throughout the program, regardless of how many new catalogs I open.
