    With Photo Mechanic 6 and Photo Mechanic Plus, your Metadata windows are customizable. You can change the order of the fields, which fields appear and more.

    Photo Mechanic 6 and Plus no longer include the "Classic" Interface for the Metadata Info and Metadata Template dialogs (formerly known as the IPTC Info and IPTC Stationery Pad dialogs). However, if the 'Classic' Dialogs included all of the fields you need, we have built-in snapshots for the Metadata Info and Template windows to display only the fields that were available in the Classic dialogs.
  1. Navigate to Photo Mechanic> Preferences.
  2. Choose Accessibility preferences.
  3. Select Metadata (IPTC) Info or Metadata (IPTC) Template.
  4. In the window that appears Select the snapshot button (the lightning bolt) from the Customize Metadata (IPTC) Template window.
  5. Select [PM Classic].

    Once selected, the Appropriate "Enabled" and "Visible" boxes will be deselected, and the changes will be apparent when you open the Metadata Info and Metadata Template dialogs moving forward.
