Hi, working for a newspaper I need to fill a special Metadata field with a value.

The field is shown in Photoshop, but I did no find it  in Lightroom.

Any idea, how I can fill it without open Photoshop?

Thank you for helping me

You can't really, as it is such an old field. Even when it was used, it was often as a way to store the colour label.

You should be able to write it while in LR using this (my) plugin Capture Time to Exif​ which (despite the name) provides a way to execute Exiftool commands within LR. You would set it not to change dates, and would add the urgency as a manual command - it looks like Urgency is the field EnvelopePriority  https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/TagNames/IPTC.html

Editorial urgency fell from usage with the introduction of IPTC Core 1.0 in 2005.

You can apply it in Bridge. It's the same File Info panel as Photoshop.

It would be easier for me to fill the parameter within my lightroom workflow.
