Add metadata sub action

Use this sub action to add metadata to a selection of files.


Add metadata sub action

This sub action is used when you want to apply metadata to individual files that are processed in an action. For every file sent to the action, FotoStation will open the metadata editor that you have preset in the action and let you tag the picture with metadata. This sub action also lets you control whether the text you apply should be appended to existing text or overwrite existing metadata in the fields you are editing.

You can also configure the action so that it remembers the last text you typed in the editor to make it easy to add that text to additional files that are processed in the action.

Tip: If you would like to add a template or a macro to a number of files without any user input, you may want to use the Apply Text Macro/Template sub action instead.
