Lightroom Metadata Preset Details

Note: Before defining your Lightroom Metadata Preset Details, make sure you've created one or more preset names in Maintenance > Digital > Lightroom Metadata Presets.

Defining the preset details is basically setting up a table of rules that let Spectra/myStratus Desktop know what a Lightroom rating, color label, or keyword should "equal" in Spectra/myStratus. Examples include:

  • An image with a rating of no stars in Lightroom should be marked as "Not Selected" in Spectra/myStratus.

  • An image with a four star rating in Lightroom should be marked as "Selected" in Spectra/myStratus.

  • An image with a red color label in Lightroom should be put in an image group called "Outdoor."

  • An image with a yellow color label in Lightroom should be put in an image group called "Special Effects."

  • and so on...


When you're ready to define the preset details, open Maintenance > Digital > Lightroom Metadata Preset Details.

  • Select a Lightroom Metadata Preset from the drop-down list.

  • To add a detail line, click once in the blank row or click New on the ribbon.

  •  In the first column, select a Metadata Type. These are items that have been assigned in Lightroom, including Color Label, Image Rating, and Keyword.

  • In the second column, enter or type the Lightroom selection that you will be defining for Spectra/myStratus. Note: When typing in color labels or keywords, make sure to type it in exactly as it appears in Lightroom, including capitalization.

  • In the third column, select whether metadata of this type will translate to a Selection or an Image Group in Spectra/myStratus.

  • Finally, in the fourth column, enter or select the specific selection rating or image group.
