Feature Request: Do not have "Copyright Info URL" metadata field not visible by Default!

Dear Adobe: 

It's not clear how to use the "feature request" page to log a request any longer, so I'm posting this here:

Please DO NOT have the "Copyright Info URL" photo metadata field turned off by default in Adobe Bridge.  Yes, for those of us who already know it's there, we can go in and turn this on, but many will not even be aware they can do this. 

Especially given that Google has added this as a way to point out to others that an image is "Licensable" (see https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/image-license-metadata for details). 

 

I would highly recommend that all five of these photo metadata fields being used by Google Image Search be visible in the Metadata Palette and/or File Info by default.

Google Image Search is currently using the values in the Creator, Copyright Info and Credit Line fields,  and "Copyright Info URL" (aka Web Statement of Rights field, which is labeled as “Copyright Info” or “Copyright Info URL” in most Adobe Software) and Licensor URL have just added as part of the Beta program mentioned above.  

 

For those wanting more detailed instructions, see https://iptc.org/standards/photo-metadata/quick-guide-to-iptc-photo-metadata-and-google-images/ and the example page linked from this page (https://www.iptc.org/std-dev/photometadata/examples/google-licensable/images/). 

 

People who want to protect their imagery, and those who are trying to license their work have enough hurdles to deal with as it is; there's no reason to make them have to search through buried preference settings to make these fields visible when they are already present. 

 

Thanks,

David
