Customized Meta Fields in Bridge

I want to customize a set of metadata fields in Adobe Bridge to tag assets used for instructional designers. I noticed that you have a DICOM set created for the medical community. Is there any way to build one just like that with our own perimeters? I know that I can do custom tags in Lightroom.

Have you tried using Create Metadat Template under the tools menu?

Yes, I did, but it only allows me to organize metadata fields provinded by Adobe. I need some fields with customized names.

If you really want to create your own panel with custom names and fields, you can attempt to create one, but IMO it's a PIA. trying to figure out the proper namespaces and syntax is not fun. Plus I'm not sure how current this link is and how well these panels work now. There has been issues in the past with them. We developed one and Adobe changed the process, so we couldn't view or edit thousands of file's metadata. I'm not sure if there is a fix, but currently I have to enter the custom metadata in the file info panel and not the metadata panel that's on the side of Bridge.

Then if you want custom names and fields, you'll have to create a custom panel with the link that I provided.

Good luck, it's not that easy. And as I mentioned before, you need to enter the info in the file info panel rather than the normal metadata panel, as the changes don't always register.

I hope that link that I gave you has current info. They dropped their Flash based panels a while ago, so hopefully that covers the new method.

Chuck: It's no longer as easy in CC 2019, the plugin information is now embedded as package infromation inside the app. I can see the dicom.plugin inside, but have no idea of how to add new ones. Adobe issued an SDK that allows using javascript to build new plugins, but it seems to be complicated and the parts are scattered.

For some reason, the one I created for my work, a few years ago, after they dropped Flash still works and shows up. Here's one link about where to put the panel, with the new system. Still looking for info on creating the panels currently.

Here's another link that looks promising,  but makes my head spin just looking at the subjects.

Carmel - have you made progress on creating a custom metadata panel?

The current way to do this is documented in XMP Metadata UI SDK CC 2014  

In the doc folder, look at XMPMetadataUI.pdf for details.  You can start with their sample extention and customize for your needs.  Also, you can create your own namespace for custom properties, in case no other namespaces are appropriate.

On thing to know is that there is a bug with the extensions which causes invalid XMP arrays to be generated.  Becasue of this, you should only use XMP text properties, not bag, seq, or langAlt.

Let me know if you need help.
