I’ve mentioned Jeffery Friedl and his cool tools here before. Well he’s now updated his Lightroom Metadata Viewer Preset Builder for Lightroom 1.1. Quite a mouthful! So what does it do?
If you look at the Metadata Pane in Library you can see a viewer dropdown list to the right of the label ‘Metadata’. It includes default templates such as All, Quick Describe, EXIF and others. Jeff’s LMVPB allows you to create your own Metadata views that include the information you need to see when you look at metadata. Jeff describes the tool in great detail in the article and even if you don’t feel an immediate need to use the tool, it is still quite informative and a useful read.
Jeff also does a list of his favourite new features in Lightroom 1.1.
