One thought on “Metadata Test File”

  1. Having a metadata test file is also useful for troubleshooting. I remember back in Bridge CS5 (I think), the labelling of certain metadata fields was incorrect and Bridge would write to the wrong XMP elements in the file. As a result, when my DAM would read the XMP on ingest and display the metadata to my users, my users complained that the DAM was buggy. Using a metadata test file, I was able to convince my users of what was happening — they really didn’t want to believe that it was an Adobe issue, they preferred it to be the DAM’s fault until the saw the results of the metadata test file. Adobe came out with a fix one or two versions later.
