What I really need is to see the layered metadata.. or what I have done to the picture.
Software technician: Jins M. N., Computer Hardware Engineer replied 11 months ago
  • To specify the metadata that appears in the Metadata panel, do one of the following:

    • Choose Preferences from the Metadata panel menu.
    • Choose Edit > Preferences and then select Metadata from the list on the left.
  • Select the metadata fields that you want to display in the Metadata panel. (You should select Edit History to see the edits meta)

  • Select the Hide Empty Fields option to hide fields with no information in them.

  • Click OK.

Note: The History Log preference must be turned on in Photoshop for the log to be saved with the file’s metadata.

To see Meta Data on a text file, import it into a document

  • Select one or more files.

  • Choose File > File Info.

  • Choose Import from the pop-up menu at the bottom of the dialog box.

    Note: You must save a metadata template before you can import metadata from a template.

  • Specify how you want to import the data:

    Clear Existing Properties And Replace With Template Properties

    Replaces all metadata in the file with the metadata in the XMP file.

    Keep Original Metadata, But Replace Matching Properties From Template

    Replaces only metadata that has different properties in the template.

    Keep Original Metadata, But Append Matching Properties From Template

    (Default) Applies the template metadata only where no metadata value or property currently exists in the file.

  • Click OK.

  • Navigate to the XMP text file and click Open.

    Regards

    Jins

    Software technician: Jins M. N., Computer Hardware Engineer replied 11 months ago
