I have Lightroom 5. I want to add a location to each of my photographsm, but only see a "sublocation" category under Metadata. Is this where I should put, Country, State, City information? Or what does Sublocation mean?
In the Library Metadata panel on the right, when you select Location you should see fields labeled Sublocation, City, State / Province, Country, and ISO Country Code.
"Sublocation" is defined by the IPTC standard to contain: "Name of a sublocation the content is focussing on -- either the location shown in visual media or referenced by text or audio media. This location name could either be the name of a sublocation to a city or the name of a well known location or (natural) monument outside a city. In the sense of a sublocation to a city this element is at the fourth level of a top-down geographical hierarchy."
While commercial users may have very specific conventions about how to use Sublocation, you're free to use it for whatever you want (unless you have a business need to follow someone else's conventions). So you could enter the name of a neighborhood, a museum, a natural monument, a park, or anything else you want.
Thanks a lot! That answers my question question. Apparently, I did not see that there was a drop down menu for "Location" under the Metadata tab. I was under "Default", so I only saw the option for "sublocation".
