I've set up a metadata template for the IPTC Core data to add name
copyright, etc to all my files in bridge. I see all my raws (CR2 from
a 20D) have the "Creator" as "unknown" if I do an "Append" of the
template, the Creator field in the IPTC Core now reads, "unknown,John
A. Stovall" If I do a "Replace" all the information in the EXIF "Lens"
field is changed to what ever lens was used for the image which I
created the template from. If I could just set the default value of
the "Creator" to be null I could use append but I can not find where
that is set.

Any help or suggestions?

Hi John,

hope I am not insulting your knowledge here; are you aware that in the
EOS Viewer Utility that came with your camera, you can go to the Options
Menu and choose "camera settings"? It is there that you enter your name
in the "owner" field. The data will then show your name, instead of
Unknown. The Camera Settings dialog lets you synchronise the time on the
camera with your computer, reformat the memory card and enter the
owner's name.
In case you share the camera with one or more persons, each person would
have to perform the above operation and enter their own name into the
camera "prior" to going on a photoshoot, as this data is embedded with
the image.

Regards,
Brian Davies.
