I bought a used camera and took hundreds of photos before I realized the previous owner had set the copyright information on the camera. Now all the photos I have in LR have his name as the Creator. Is there any way to modify the metadata for this field for all of the saved photos at once, or am I forced to edit each photo individually? (Yes - I feel like a dork.)
(When it comes to things like this, we've all been dorks at one time or another.)
1. Make sure that Metadata > Show Metadata For Target Photo Only is not checked.
2. Select all the photos you want to change.
3. In the Metadata panel on the right, change the appropriate field, and the change will be applied to all the selected photos.
Thank you! I don't expect I'll ever be asked to sell my photos - but the guy I bought the camera from does. I didn't want to ever inadvertently misrepresent him.
