I have purchased EM (had an old copy of iView a long time ago and sorry I didn't keep up with it) and want to start using it again.  My biggest problem is I've done all my work in Bridge/ACR and when the raw adj. was all I needed, I left the finished photo as a dng and gave it a label.  Shows up fine in Bridge/PS, but no other program.  So I suppose the best way around that is to open the photos in ACR and do a Save Image instead of Done.  I'll have 2 copies but then EM will read a finished photo.  Any other suggestions are appreciated.

Also, when a photo needed work in PS I saved the layers and the photo as a psd (and not a tiff).  Any issues with keeping them in the psd format?  For photos that were to be sent or shared I made a jpg for the ease of sending.

Everything is backed up in 3 places so if I make a goof, I can locate another copy.

Peter, in watching an older video from you on Lynda.com, you say EM won't read the color coding from Bridge.  You talked about making a droplet, but I have to say, I have no idea what that is or how to do it.  Are there any instructions anywhere on how to have EM read color coding from Bridge?  I'm on a Mac Pro.

Thanks,

Expression Media and IView color labels are stored in the "Urgency" field of the IPTC Legacy settings.  I don't recall what number makes what label color in EM but that's easy to figure out.  Just select all of the images with a particular color label in Bridge and put the appropriate number in their Urgency field to give the same label color in EM.

I have the Urgency field showing on the IPTC area on the Metadata window, but it says it cannot be altered or written to.  I looked in File Info and where you make a metadata template, but no Urgency line is there.

If it is not writable, how do you add something to that line in Bridge?

Thanks,  Sue

I have not used editing that field in quite a while.  It used to work for me (CS3 maybe CS4?).  I just tried with Bridge CS5 and I'm seeing what you see.  It definitely hasn't always appeared as a locked field for me.  Let me look around and see if I can figure out why.

Thanks Bob,

Crazy thing, I noticed a new file of photos that were taken recently has a High urgency attached to it.  I have no idea how that got there. There is also an older file that has the same thing attached.  The older file was processed with LR and the newer one with NX2.  I mostly use ACR/CS5 now for 95% of my processing.  NX2 comes in handy when I just can't get something to look right and I give it a try in that.
