There is a lot of Exif, IPTC and XMP metadata for images. It’s a tedious work to scan them and sort them out in order to determine which metadata property to set and how to set it.
In this post, I display my medatada settings as a freelance photographer. This is a corresponding table between Exif / IPTC / XMP , Capture One Pro, Photoshop CC, Bridge CC and my own settings for copyright and image ownership metadata property names.
Here is the structure of this corresponding table :
|EXIF / IPTC / XMP Property Name|
|Property Name in Capture One Pro|
|Property Name in Adobe Photoshop|
|Property Name in Adobe Bridge|
|My Metadata setting|
I chose to set some property Names related to copyright and image ownership, and also chose to let some of them empty.
- For instance, I chose to set [EXIF] Artist to « Laurence Bichon ».
- and I chose to let [XMP-iptcCore] Creator Work Telephone empty.
In the following table, I used the blue background color when I chose to set this metadata property.

For instance, for Capture One, « [IPTC – Contact] Creator » refers to
For instance, for Photoshop, « [IPTC – Creator] » refers to
Here is the corresponding table between Exif / IPTC / XMP , Capture One Pro, Photoshop CC and my own settings for copyright and image ownership metadata property names :
