Does Bridge write keywords to file?

Simple question, hopefully, simple yes or no answer.
To be clear, when I say write to file, I mean: are the tags/keywords written to the image files so that, when I look for images in folders in Windows Explorer, the tags show up in the details view of those windows.

Be aware that there are four different namespaces where keywords can be saved. Bridge writes to dc:subject and sometimes to lr:hierarchicalKeywords, although the latter has significant bugs.

 

The best thing to do is try it for yourself so you can see what is supported.

Not all file types can have metadata attached to them - can't write to a .png.

A .png file supports IPTC and can store keywords, title, copyright, etc.

I see, it was updated in 2017. That is very helpful for me.
