I’m using the ‘from keywords to IPTC’ [COPY] functionality on the location keywords tab to populate the location metadata fields but it won’t work when I’m trying to use the functionality with larger sets of images. I can get it to do 20-50 at a time but if I select any more then it doesn’t copy any data across (I’m a registered user). Any ideas?

Regards

It should work and I haven't had reports of other problems in this area. I suggest checking that all the keyword metadata is present in the exactly-right form, and in general I enter IPTC location fields first and copy them to keywords.

Hi John, I believe the issue is with any images that have more than 4 levels in their' ~IPTC locations' keyword heirarchy. Can you think of any way around this without removing the 5th level?
