In Photoshop CS6, when you save an open file to .psd, .tif, or .jpg,
whatever metadata it contains is saved with the file, and you can examine it in Bridge.
But when you save to .png, the metadata panel in Bridge is empty — there’s nothing there!
Is this a bug or a feature?
CS6 does store metadata in a png file and it is readable in Bridge. For that to happen, however, you have to make sure that the SFW dialog has its metadata box not set to None. Set it to one of the other choices to match your needs.
The metadata in the png file does not show up, unfortunately, in the File Info ... box within Photoshop. It should.
By referring to the SFW dialong do you actually mean the SWF dialog? And if so, would you elaberate on how and where this is to be done, please. I am relatively new to CS6 and have the issue, but reading what is available here is Greek to me. My understanding of SWF was that it was for video. Does it apply to PNG still photos also?
