Metadata in images that you output
Metadata assigned in Corel AfterShot Pro can be passed along to the images that are output. By default, all EXIF and IPTC metadata is passed along to output images. Flags are not part of the EXIF or IPTC standards, so they are not output.
Keywords are included in the IPTC Standard, but have restrictions on the length and structure of the keywords.
• IPTC Keywords must be 64 characters or less in length. Keywords longer than this will be truncated.
• IPTC Keywords have a flat structure. Corel AfterShot Pro keyword hierarchies are flattened in the IPTC standard.
Corel AfterShot Pro also writes out keyword hierarchy information into XMP sections in a manner that can be understood by a growing number of applications that also use keyword hierarchies.
Corel AfterShot Pro metadata in other applications
If you use Corel AfterShot Pro's Asset Management and metadata editing features and want that metadata to be shared with external applications, you will need to export your metadata changes to a standard XMP file. Then tell the other applications to read the metadata from those XMP files, updating their internal databases accordingly.
Disabling metadata output
When you output your files, you can choose whether to include or omit metadata in output files. By default, Corel AfterShot Pro will include EXIF, IPTC, and Corel AfterShot Pro metadata when you output.
