Metadata Showdown - Photo Mechanic vs Lightroom
Metadata cage match! Two enter, one emerges victorious!
By Matthew Jeppsen | March 23, 2009
Military photographer Tyler Ginter has written a fantastic article comparing Lightroom with Photo Mechanic, specifically in the metadata dept. Why all the fuss about metadata? Tyler's military documentation group and AP photographers are required to complete no less than 17 metadata fields in order to submit images to the Pentagon and National Archives. Tyler nails down 5 areas that Lightroom is weak in, and discusses how Photo Mechanic fits their needs in those areas. It's a great comparison and look into an area that most photographers probably don't have to deal with. Adobe, are you listening?
