    want the remove IPTC fields by export

    Bart van Hattem

      I have a lot of pictures that i will export with a preset.

      Because of privacy matters i must remove the IPTC-fields such as sublocation, city, state / province.

      Can get that done. To much pictures to remove these fields in Photoshop after the export one by one.....

      Naturally i want to keep this info in the field in my originals !

       

      Thanks !

          In the export dialogue there are four different metadata options. Have you looked at those?

            You have four options under Metadata in the Export dialog, one of these should probably do what you want, like Copyright Only.

            Or you use All, and check Remove Location Info.

              If the built-in Export options don't meet your needs, the Metadata Wrangler plugin will give you very precise control over which fields get exported.

                Thanks, Jim. That does not work for me. I have also tried the metadata wrangler plugin. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that some of those pictures were originally imported with PhotoMechanic... Thanks anyway !

                  Hi Per, It does not work for me... I have also installed the metadata wrangler but no luck....

                  Going nuts over this ! Thanks for your answer !

                    Hi John, I have installed the metadata wrangler but no luck....

                    Thanks for your answer !

                    Piet Van de Eynde (the writer of excellent LR-books) came up with a answer that looks interesting, i will try that one ! but it is not for daily use on a speedy workflow...

                     

                     

                    Save locations

                     

                     

                    For photos captured within a defined proximity, you can create a saved location. For example, if you travel to Greece for a photo shoot for a client, you can create a saved location that encompasses the islands you visited.

                     

                     

                    • In the Map module, navigate to a location on the map and click the + button in the Saved Locations panel. The Saved Location panel is on the left side of the Lightroom window.

                       

                    •  

                      In the New Location dialog box, enter a name for the location and select a folder to save it in.

                       

                      Radius


                      Defines a radius, in feet, miles, meters, or kilometers, from the center of the visible map area.

                       

                      Private


                      Removes all IPTC location metadata, including GPS coordinates, Sublocation, City, State/Province, Country, and ISO Country Code, when photos in the saved location are exported from Lightroom.

                       

                    •  

                      Click Create.The location appears on the map marked by a white circle, with one pin in the center and another pin on the perimeter.

                       

                    •  

                      When working with saved locations, do any of the following:

                       

                      • Select or deselect a location in the Saved Locations panel to view it on the map.

                      The Saved Locations panel in the Map module

                      • To add photos to the location, do one of the following:
                        • Drag one or more photos from the Filmstrip into the white circle in the map.
                        • Select one or more photos in the Filmstrip and select the check box next to the location name in the Saved Locations panel.
                      • To go to a location on the map, click the right-arrow button by the location name in Saved Locations panel.
                      • To edit a location, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) it in the Saved Locations panel and choose Location Options.Tip: You can also drag the pin at the top of the location circle in the map to adjust the radius. Drag the pin in the center of the circle to move the location on the map.
                      • To remove a location, select it in the Saved Locations panel and click the minus ( - ) button. Or, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) it in the Saved Locations panel or on the map and choose Delete.

                      Hi all !

                      Thanks for your time and thinking.

                      I disabled the plugin metadatawrangler en did everything with the option in LR export metadata dialog. That worked !

                      Never checked all fields after exporting with metadatawrangler did that just because of the fact my cliënt checked it in PS....

                      Case closed !
