I do a lot of batch processing and have to re-apply IPTC metadata numerous times in Bridge. This is a major PITA to say the least.
For those who haven't seen it, the current version of Photoshop CC on Windows 7 apparently has a bug when opening files. It doesn't properly read the IPTC XML tags and the result is that metadata, star ratings, and Bridge labels are deleted when the file is saved.
Adobe's suggested workarounds are: Windows 8 (not happening in a corp environment), reinstall the older PS CC (such requests make corp IT cranky) or open files with Camera RAW (not compatible with automated batch processing.)
