Custom Metadata Panel for Bridge now available

Custom Metadata Panel for Bridge 1.0.0 now available

Focus your attention on critical metadata in this configurable form. Mix and match standard and custom metadata fields to show the properties critical to your business.

The Custom Metadata Panel for Bridge provides Enterprises and individuals with a way to focus their attention on critical metadata in one panel.

The panel is completely customizable and helps end users and Digital Asset Management (DAM) managers tune their metadata view for maximum accuracy and efficiency. With 7 form field types and metadata presets, it expands the metadata capabilities of Bridge without using XML or special coding.

Form fields include:

  • Text
  • Multiple Text
  • Tags (like Keywords)
  • Dropdown
  • Multi-select Dropdown
  • Date Picker
  • AEM Tags (special case just for Adobe Experience Manager)

Other features include a read-only entries, section dividers, a built-in form editor, form definition file import and export, and the ability to use a URL as the location for the form. This last feature is ideal for Enterprise or group applications, where a DAM Manager posts the form to a common location and all users get the latest and greatest.

The panel is free and available from the Exchange here:  https://exchange.adobe.com/creativecloud.details.103752.html

See a video tour at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IoMGJiEHss

Works as a great complement to any Digital Asset Management solution that uses custom metadata properties.

Hi, is this meant as a tool to create custom panels instead of coding them? Would they live in the File info panel, and in the metadata panel, like the "XMP" panels?

Hi, Pierre.

Yes, that is correct. The panel brings XMP metadata out of the FileInfo Panel and into your workspace, and you can create new panels without coding. However, you do need to know the proper namespace URL and property names when you are making the panel. The current version (1.3.0) supports Bridge, Illustrator and Photoshop. If you have an M1 Mac, and you're using the latest Photoshop, then it will require Rosetta 2. Download from the Marketplace or read more at our github page
