Adding Metadata to your Photos in Photoshop and Lightroom

Summary: Adding metadata to your photos directly from Photoshop and Lightroom will make it easy for you to bulk-upload your photos' metadata with our Bulk Uploader. Learn how to do this below.

In our Bulk Uploader, after uploading multiple photos, just set the category as "Photos" and all of your photos’ Metadata will auto-populate. Here's how to ensure that our Bulk Uploader will populate your Photos' metadata properly:

Photoshop

  • In Photoshop, go to File > File Info… > IPTC and scroll down to IPTC Content

  • The tags of the photo should be set in the “Keywords” field, separated by commas or semicolons

Lightroom

  •  In Lightroom, under the “Library” tab, select the photos you want to change, and go to the right-hand column under Metadata. Make sure the IPTC category is selected at the top left of the section.
