Metadata templates are a tool for saving a set of frequently used annotations and applying them to media items. A metadata template applies Annotations, People, Keywords, Scenes, Subject Codes, Categories, and Descriptions to each item selected in the catalog.
We have a blog post here that explains how to use metadata template in Expression Media to annotate media items. In this second part you'll learn how to use the metadata template created by Expression Media in some other third party applications like Adobe Bridge for annotating media items.
Phase 1: Create a metadata template in Expression Media:
Phase 2: Apply metadata template to media items in Adobe CS applications:
Alternatively, you can enter the metadata for an image in Expression Media, sync the annotations to image, open that image in an adobe application, click File > File Info, click fly-out menu on top right corner, save it as metadata template. Then select media items that you wanted to apply the metadata in an Adobe application, click File > File Info and select the metadata template created above.
As always test and verify that all the metadata information will transfer correctly from metadata template to other media items.
