Photoshop CS2 File Info Templates fill in all pages, not just it’s own

Posted By

I just purchased an Acer Laptop computer, has an AMD 64×2 Dual Core Processor, 2GB of DDR2 Ram, 160GB hard drive with Windows Vista Home Premium preinstalled. I’m not sure how any of this could be of any help, though.
I’ve just installed Photoshop CS2, Neat image noise remover, Nik sharpener, and Huey pro calibrator on it.
This is to be a second computer to a Dell desktop, that will be used when out of town and we want to work on our images.
Today we opened Photoshop CS2 and tried to work on some Raw images. We were just going to crop them and fill in the File Info on them then save them to jpeg.
The cropping went fine. When we tried to enter file info and save the Metadata Templates we had trouble. There are 7 of 12 different pages of info that can be changed, the other 5 can’t be, I think. Anyway, we were filling in the Description, IPTC Contact, ITPC Content, IPTC Image and IPTC Status pages. We saved the IPTC Contact page as a Metadata Template.
The first image went fine, but when we opened other images, and typed in the information it all changed back to the information on the first image we did when the saved Contact template was used. When we saved the IPTC template for the first image it save the information on all of the pages, not just the Contact page. When we realized this, I started playing around with it and whatever template was saved last will give you all the information typed in on all pages that was there when that template was saved. I also checked the Photoshop CS2 installed on the Dell Desk Top and it is working correctly. We have templates for Description, IPTC Contact, and IPTC Image saved on it. These will give you the information on the individual page not all.
Why would it be doing this on the Laptop and more importantly, how can I fix it?

I sure hope this makes sense and do apologize for the length of it. Thanks in advance for any help I can get. Linda
