Just started testing IIP and have a couple of questions.

1. Which metadata field do people here use to preserve the original filename (via {@filename} macro)?

2. It seems that some metadata info can be entered multiple ways. Peter's book recommends creating a metadata template in Photoshop and entering all the common bulk data there. However, the ImageIngester.xmp template has all the fields macroed, and it looks like I'd have to supply the values in the Metadata panel. Which way is preferred? I'm just an amateur photographer, so I have no use for contacts, jobs, clients, etc right now.

Another question:

3. I'm using IIP to migrate some original RAW files that were adjusted ACR before and have sidecars. Will IIP preserve these sidecars when ingesting a folder?

Andrei--

1. I'll let some experienced photographers answer this one.

2. In the new version, 2.3, which is available in beta, there is a new streamlined way to set up a metadata template. It's more reliable and simpler than the old way, which required that an XMP file be modified.

3. I think I answered this one in another thread. If there's a sidecar, IIP won't supply its own, and neither will it modify the existing one.

I'm actually using 2.3 beta right now. Are you referring to the ImageIngester.xmp that has macros in it and the values for these macros are provided through Metadata panel?

Andrei--

Yes... with 2.3 (the recent betas), you use ImageIngester-IPTC as your template, and then you use one of the Metadata Presets (e.g., Standard). That puts the metadata into the sidecar without your having to edit the template yourself.

It's all explained here: http://basepath.com/ImageIngester/iiblog.php?url=blogentry/2007-05-16.htm.
