Managing Keywords and other Metadata

The Process Recipe’s Metadata tab is used to manage ratings and color tags, copyright information, GPS and EXIF data and keywords.

Specifying metadata on export

Capture One has the option of removing or stripping metadata from image variants on export. Like other recipe settings, specifying or controlling metadata is an integral part of each process recipe. Capture One offers the option to remove specific metadata depending on your requirements. You can choose to remove the following: Rating and Color Tag, Copyright, GPS coordinates, Camera (EXIF) metadata, Keywords (see more below) and All Other (IPTC). The default setting includes All Metadata information, with the exception of Ratings and Color Tags.

  1. Go to the Output Tool Tab.
  2. Select the Metadata tab in the Process Recipe tool.
  3. Un-check the relevant boxes to remove any metadata associated with the image variants selected for processing and exporting.

Managing keywords on output

When exporting images, Capture One will include any assigned keywords from shared keyword libraries by default. However, you can select specific keyword libraries to assign to images during output. This is particularly useful when you have a controlled vocabularly for a particular use, for example, a news agency or stock library.

  1. Select the appropriate recipe form the Process Recipes list. The recipe is then highlighted in orange. (Note that if multiple recipes are to be used for output, the following selection will have to be made for each recipe).
  2. From the Process Recipe tool located under the Output Tool tab, select the Metadata tab.
  3. Click on the Text field under Include Keywords and select From selected keyword libraries.
  4. Choose the relevant library from the list. (Only shared libraries can be chosen.)
