With every image you take, Capture One has the ability to add snippets of information - such as your name, email, website, address and a lot more - to it. Those are called metadata. If you want to make sure that, if someone comes across you photo on the web and downloads it, they can still trace back who made it originally, adding metadata can be a good option. It’s a way to kind of put a stamp on your work.
Capture One can, automatically, add metadata to all of your shots. To do so, you have to create a preset with your information. Go to the Metadata tab and start filling in the fields you wish to. Then, click on the three horizontal bars at the top right of the panel and select Save User Preset…. You can check and uncheck the boxes that you want included or not in the preset. After that, click on save and give it a name.
In order to have it applied to every file as they come in while shooting tethered, navigate to the Styles & Presets panel. Then, from the drop-down menu, select the preset you just made.
That’s it! You will have the information you just entered applied to every image. You can add tons and tons of different Styles and Presets, not just metadata presets!
