I have updated my 2023 copyright info in all of my cameras. I also updated my Metadat presets to use the 2023 copyright year. However, all of the photos I download atill have the 2022 copyright year, and I have to manually change every single photo to 2023. Yes, I can select all the downloaded images I am working on and go to Tools and select Metadata preset, and it will change them to 2023, but I should not have to do that. They should download with the 2023 copyright, which is in all my cameras and in the Metadata preset. This did not happen when 2021 changed to 2022. What do I do to make all of my downloads use my 2023 copyright year?
How are you copying photos from the memory card to the computer?
I have a USB CF Express card reader and am downloading from the card to Pictures in Bridge on my desktop PC. I have updated the copyright on all three of my cameras. I have changed the Metadata Preset template, also created another metadata template called Copyright 2023, and I can update the copyright year on individual photos by selecting either of those presets, but I don't want to have to manually update the copyright on my images.
I find the Photo Downloader to be buggy and don't even use it, I just manually copy photos and then batch apply the metadata template. For whatever reason, Canon doesn't support a proper copyright symbol when changing metadata directly on the camera.
Hi, @ArdethC, I'm not sure from what you're wrote, but it seems that you are aware of the option to create, edit, and apply metadata from Bridge's Tools menu. You can select any number of photos and apply changes and/or updates to those files in Bridge.
So, if you do not do it in your camera, or you do not do it when transporting the images via Photo Downloader, you can always do it to all of the images from within Bridge.
Thank you for your comment, Gary. My issue was that I did not want to have to manually change the copyright year every time I downloaded hundreds of images per day, not evy by batch change; I want the correct copyright year to appear automatically as I have set all my cameras and all the Photoshop preferences, and that wasn't happening! I believe another suggestion that the photo downloader has the old copyright year addresses my issue.
Thanks for your feedback.
We are investigating this issue.
There is an option to add copyright year in Photo Downloader. Please try that option.
I believe you have hit the nail on the head! Today when I used the photo downloader, I did see in Advanced Dialog the copyright year.
