Saving and Reading Metadata in Lightroom

Article Description

Lightroom 1.1 has metadata options that clarify the whole "What happens to my changes?" issue. Martin Evening points out the relevant features and explains how to use these settings to advantage.

Importing Metadata

Also on the Metadata menu is the Read Metadata from Files menu option. This replaces the previous Metadata > XMP > Import XMP Metadata from File menu item, which basically means that you can use the Read Metadata from Files menu command to ask Lightroom to read in the metadata explicitly from a particular photo or group of selected photos.
