Metadata help in photoshop

I do volume school/sport photography work. I use a green screen for sports and then place the extracted images into a sports template and personalize it for each player. I recently got Entagged to use metadata for GotPhoto. When I transfer the sports player into a template to personalize and save, the metadata from the player photo is not transfering to the template. Please dumb this down for me so that I can figure out how to transfer to the metadata from each player photo to the customizable sport template. I've already tried reading throught the forums and do not understand what people are talking about.

I'm not familiar with either of those tools - Entagged or GotPhoto. I would reach out the their support community to see how they can help with the metadata the software is creating.

Presumably, you know you can add Metadata to an image via File Info in Photoshop?

You need image specific variable source document metadata in a generic template document.


Think opposite... Perhaps you could copy the template into a dupe of the original player image that was resized to match the template as the starting point.

 

Otherwise, if the template used the same name as the player image in a different file format then metadata can be bulk copied from one file to the other using ExifTool.

Derek Cross' info below is extremely helpful.  That "File Info" panel for metadata is a super-power! 

Photoshop, to my mind, is the superior editing tool, however the catalogue and image management, in the Adobe system, is easily done with Lightroom (or for some - through Bridge).  Lightroom is where I rely on managing most metadata - especially batches.  So I am no help here.

If Entagged or Gotphoto has a "plug-in" that you could install in Photoshop to help or that there is an established "Action" that could be created or installed would be great.  Sounds too good to be true, but if there were an "Action" it could do it all for you on export, other than you having to type in the individual player name/info, assuming you have a large batch of images to manage.

Good luck!
