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.
