Working with Metadata

You can display different combinations of metadata with your images in Aperture, such as version names, captions, ratings, keywords, and IPTC information. You can apply metadata presets to your images during import. You set the display of metadata with your images in Aperture using the Browser & Viewer Metadata dialog. You use the Metadata inspector to display and change the metadata for a selected image, and you can create custom sets of metadata for display using the Metadata Views dialog. You can set Aperture to display descriptive icons (called badge overlays) on images when you’ve made changes to them. You can also use the Metadata inspector to apply color labels to an image selection, rate and flag images, and play audio attachments.
