Removing metadata fields from the output files

Filtering out metadata

Where: Channel | Metadata | General tab

Using Metadata filtering you can determine which fields you wish to preserve in the channel's output.

Click on Metadata Filters to see the available options.

By default, all XMP data in the input file will be preserved in the output. However, it is possible to allow only fields that the Color Factory is aware of (that are in the local Metadata Configuration schema) to pass through. This is accomplished by choosing Allow only fields defined in the Metadata Configuration. Any fields not part of the schema will be stripped away from the output file. 

Removing specific fields from the output file

Additionally, it is possible to block fields, i.e. not preserve them in the output. This is done by clicking on Block Fields and adding individual fields to the list. This may be a more practical ways to remove metadata than setting up a macro that strips away unwanted information from individual fields.
