I bought Photoshop Elements 10 mainly so that I could easily update the metadata but it doesn't write to DNG files (An Adobe product!) so a: How do I get around this OR b: How do I return the downloaded product?

I've also noted that Elements 10 does not recognise IPTC metadata (excepting Keywords) even though this is an Adobe supported function.

Have I missed the plot?

Hi Anthony,

DNG can be created from camera raw files using the FREE Adobe DNG Converter. More details on downloading and using the DNG Converter here:

Elements 10 does recognize IPTC metadata.

You can access your file metadata in both the Editor (File>File Info...) and the Organizer (Right Click on an image and select "Show Properties..." - click the Medadata tab and click "Complete" to see all the metadata)

Hi Jeffrey, Thank you for your prompt and helpful response. However, although I can see the metadata for individual files, I can't find a way to search or use a filter - such as is available using keywords. My metadata, inserted with FotoStation and to Adobe IPTC, is Country, City, Location etc. and I would like to find all images, say, for a particular City then use the very nice Keyword tagging in Elements to tag the people.

Is this possible?

Regards

Anthony
