    Thanks. Now that I know I can make my copyright a preset, I won’t ever have to do it one image at a time.

  5. Brilliant, so simple when explained. Quick question that probably won’t be an easy answer. How do I add copyright to all my images already on my hard drive, stuff from years ago?

  7. When you link the Metadata to “Coyright URL” is that something that must be listed? What do you have on that page?

  11. Nice tutorial. Thanks. I have a question. I use different catalog for different sets of photos. Is there a way to copy a Metadata Preset to new catalog?

  13. Hi, thanks for the tutorial on setting the copyright presets. One question, how do I delete presets that I’ve saved?

  15. Thanks for the tuts.

  17. Informative! Can’t wait to see the Bridge tut. Q-I use a server. Do I need to replace the existing photo images on the server with the newer saved copyright versions? I’m guessing that’s a yes… Plus does Photoshop Elements 10 have this copyright function?

  18. Can this copyright information that travels along with the photo be easily stripped away by the next person who wants to maybe mis-use the copy right info?
