As part of my standard workflow, I always insert a certain amount of information as the XMP/IPTC data into my files.

However, it seems whenever I have a large number of files to Load this data into, there's always one image that will not work.

I find I need to Load the data into smaller and smaller blocks of images until I zero in on the 'offending' image.

For instance, let's say I just took 207 photos at a birthday party. I select all the files in that folder, and go to Load XMP/IPTC Preset. But that option is grayed out.

So I reselect the first 100 frames, to find the same problem. I reselect the first 50 frames, and I am allowed to Load the Preset to it.

I select the next 50 frames, and the option is grayed out. So I select the next 25 frames, and have the same problem. I select the next 10 frames, and I can Load the Preset.

So the 'offending' frame is somewhere between the 61st and 75th image in the directory. Once I narrow it down, I can pass by it, and then select the remaining frames to Load the Preset into.

On occasion, I will find a second frame that will not allow me to Load the Preset, so I start the entire process over again.

VERY aggravating, to say the least.

Anyone else have this problem?


I hate when people ask me what I see myself doing in 5 years...... I don't have 2020 vision!
