Thread: Deleting or changing "info" on a jpg/psd File

  1. #1

    Deleting or changing "info" on a jpg/psd File

    When I'm done with a layout, I use an action that saves all my credits, incl ones I add such as font names or sometimes odd bits of info. I end up editing the final list that is saved because it 'catches' all the 'photo', 'text here', etc items that I really don't want. Those extra bits still seemed to be saved in the File Info and I'd like to clean that up so that if the photo is up on Flickr that whole long, cluttered list isn't there. I'd rather just paste my cleaned up list in the File Info but don't know how to as the File Info seems to be saved INTO the file.

    I'm just not sure where or how I can change the File Info. I tried to do it in Finder and couldn't. I hope this is question is clear!

    I'm not 100% sure of what you are referring to, but I have an idea for future use for ya! I keep my jpg files as well as my tif files. If you happen to keep your layered files as well, one thing you could do is add a text layer under your BG paper and put your credits there. This way they will be hidden and you can still refer back to them. Hope this is remotely close to want you are talking about!!

    Thank you both, but no, I guess this really has nothing to do with the action saving of credits. On my Mac, if I go to the final saved .psd or jpg file, right click and show info, ALL the original layers of the template e.g. are shown.

    It is here that I want to edit the info,mainly deleting all that extra stuff like photo, text layer, title, enter date here, etc etc that is on templates and thus in the file info.

    Maureen, what field does it save the information into? Is it the EXIF Comment or the EXIF Image description or one of the IPTC fields like Caption or Keywords? I can see and edit all of these fields in ACDSee and IrfanView and Bridge (I think - although I am totally inept in Bridge!). Is it in the PSE10 Organizer? There must be heaps of other photo editors that will allow you to do this.

    Esther, I don't know the answer. It's in the image added above. eta, I'm on a Mac too with a totally different version of ACDSee.

    I think we were posting at about the same time. I didn't see your image. Off to check...
    Perhaps it is the EXIF Image description?

    Maureen, I've done a google search for "Edit EXIF data on Mac" and it seems that if you don't have Bridge, you need to download an EXIF editor such as GraphicConverter (I remember using that over a decade ago!) or PhotoMechanic or EXIFtool (Exif editor for Mac - Photo.net Digital Darkroom Forum).
    There were quite a few people asking the same question!

    Thank you Esther. There's always something to learn! When I googled, all I got was info on changing items in iTunes. You had the correct wording!

    Sylvia (smcloone) answered my question at the image. I had missed the obvious. In PSE, it's File, File Info and then edit in description. As I said...DUH! As you might note, I am not a photographer...

    Oh good! It didn't make sense that you couldn't edit it some how!
