Displaying Metadata Associated with Images

To help identify your images as you work with them, you can set Aperture to display the metadata associated with images in the Viewer. You can display keywords, ratings, EXIF information, IPTC information, and more. You can specify whether the information appears below the image or across the bottom of the image.

You can also specify up to two views of information to be displayed with images in the Viewer. For example, one view might be configured to show ratings only, and another view to show all the IPTC information associated with an image. You can then switch between views to change the information that appears with your images.
