The names of some metadata fields may have different labels in Photo Mechanic Plus if you have been using an earlier version of Photo Mechanic, and they may also be different from corresponding fields in other programs you may use. This difference is particularly noticeable when using the Browse panel. You can change many of these field labels - either back to what you're used to using or to something that works better for you. 

  1. Navigate to Preferences>Accessiblity 
  2. Select Customize: Metadata (IPTC) Info. 
  3. Click on a Field label to change it.

You can also take advantage of snapshots and switch between different field label configurations, depending on your need. 

Note: not everything in the Metadata (IPTC) Info has a correspondence in Browse/Filter, and the column names cannot be modified.
