write metadata as on the main screen into all photos in a folder. This function allows you to write the metadata as you see it on your screen in all photos in a folder in one action.
With the radiobuttons you choose which fields you want to write and how.

• If the leftmost radio button (= 1) is chosen, you overwrite the old content of that field.
• If you choose the middle radio button (= 2) you only write that field if that field is empty in the photo.
• If you choose the rightmost button (= 3) you add the info on the screen to the existing info in the photo. This last option is for some fields not possible.
With the three numbered buttons below the text Select all you can select the same radiobutton for all fields with one click.
Write metadata to photos in folder ... Here you choose the folder with photos in which you want to write all the information on the screen. If the topmost checkbox is checked, all the information will also be written to all the photos in the subfolders of that folder.
With the radiobuttons here you choose whether you write directly in the existing photos in the above mentioned folder or whether you first make copies of those photos and write the metadata in the copies which you just made.

Create report about this action or not. Here you can choose to create a textfile in which all the activity is reported. Three options: not writing any report, report only errors or report all processed filenames and errors. If you choose a textfile which already exists, the report will be added at the end of that textfile.

But while this process is busy, you can stop it by pressing that button or you can shutdown the computer after this process is done by checking the checkbox. In that case, make sure that there are no other programs active which require your attention, otherwise those programs may prevent the shutdown of the computer.
