I am using a Macbook Pro. Every time I apply my metadata preset in Lightroom 5, all my photo keywords are deleted, making it nigh on impossible to navigate through my entire library. Can anyone help. Clearly, I am doing something wrong. Many thanks in advance.
Edit that preset. Only tick the fields you want it to update - you've accidentally left (blank) keywords checked.
Thank you so much. That works a treat. I thought I was going mad at one point because I just couldn't figure it out! You're a great help. Have an excellent day.
