Tut - Lightroom - How to create a metadata preset with basic copyright information

  • In Library module, in the right panel, find and expand Metadata section.
  • On Preset option, click the double arrow button and choose Edit Presets...
  • On the Edit Metadata Presets window, click the Check None button (at the bottom of the window)
  • On the IPTC Copyright section fill in as follow:
    • In the Copyright field: © YourName
    • On the Copyright status choose Copyrighted
    • In the Rights Usage Terms write any terms under which you provide the photograph - I write "Ask first" :)
    • In the Copyright Info URL: yourwebsite
  • Also you can fill in the fields from IPTC Creator section with information about yourself (phone, website, city etc.)
  • After that, go to the top and choose from the Preset dropdown list - Save Current Settings as New Preset...
  • Enter  a preset name like "Copyright Info" or something like that, then choose Create.
  • ...and that's it, you are ready to use it (we will see that next time ;) )
