Over the last year, we’ve been working hard to innovate and improve FotoStation - our single user image management solution. It is our aim to ensure that FotoStation makes your life easier by helping you to work more efficiently with your photos - and that it continues to play an essential part in speeding up your photography workflow.

After many months of hard work, we are excited to share with you the news that we have launched our new and improved metadata editor experience!

The benefits of the new editor

The main idea behind the new metadata editor was to enable FotoStation users to make edits to multiple files in one go. This is a marked improvement on the previous editor. Now, you don't have to make edits to files one by one but can execute such actions in batches, and see differences between multiple photos, which will drastically increase your editing efficiency. 

 

Who can use the new metadata editor?

The new editor is available to use immediately for all existing FotoStation Pro and Client users.

FotoStation 8.0 users can upgrade to FotoStation Pro to access the powerful capabilities of the new editor and much, much more!

How to access the new metadata editor 

In order to access the new metadata editor in FotoStation Pro or Client, you can simply click on the metadata tab in the program menu and enable the editor by clicking on ‘Use new editor experience’. Now, once you’ve made a selection of files, when you click the Metadata button in the toolbar (Shortcut Ctrl-T), the metadata editor will open with the new experience.

Note: the old editor experience will still be usable by going through the previous steps and unselecting ‘Use new editor experience’ in the metadata program menu. However, we recommend using the new editor.

 

If you are currently using FotoStation 8.0 and would like to access the powerful capabilities of the new and improved metadata editor, you can upgrade to FotoStation Pro today.
