This may be a silly question, or one already answered, but do any of the Canon programs (Digital Photo Professional, for example) allow for editing metadata, or can it only be done through Photoshop?

I seem to recall that Nikon's Capture NX2 allows for metadata to be edited at the same time as processing, but I could be mistaken.

I'm just trying to simplify the number of steps and programs needed.

Thanks in advance.

It can be done in many programs, but DPP is not one of them.

I know it can be done in Photoshop. I was wondering if there was the ability to do it in one of the Canon software packages.

There doesn't seem to be.

And, to be clear, when you say "Metadata" are you trying to change the shooting Exif stored by the camera, or are you trying to edit the more "descriptive" metadata that software can enter into the file? There is a difference and some apps can enter "descriptive" metadata and change it but not touch the shooting info the camera writes in.

Hi Tony,

I definitely don't want to change the shooting data, but the descriptors (keywoards, captions, etc.)

I guess Photoshop it is. Thanks for confirming. I appreciate the verification.

It seems odd that Canon doesn't allow that in their software, when others do.

Yeah, Canon is pretty basic in what it does with the software. Oh well, for a freebie it does some pretty nice stuff.

I know the EOS Utility lets you put some metadata in if you use it to download files from your camera, but I've never used it except for some tethered shooting and I've never really delved into the Metadata part.
