i've been asked to remove the copyright notice on my photos which i sell to a certain high end company. I'm happy to do this as the copyright notice comes up on my Facebook page and i have to edit it out every time. Being slightly computer stupid - i've set the metadata to default in LR4 where it shows no personal info now. This where it was set up. Is that all i need to do to stop it showing up ?

Many thanks. Lee

The copyright notice you want to get rid of is likely to be found in your camera menu. On my D7000 it is found in the setup menu. This should be similar assuming it is for your D700.

I've just found out that my metadata wasn't being uploaded to epz...looks like it was a `copyright' selection in LR4's `Export dialogue box'...have a look..there are 3/4 options in the dropdown menu. Smile

Ah!! Upon re-reading your post it seems that it was not set in-camera in the first place. I should have read the lightroom bit more thoroughly!! TongueGrin

I am not sure that you can exclude copyright information from the selection in LR's export


However perhaps a work round is to delete the information from the metadata.

Sorry. I fail to see why anyone would ask you to remove the copyright details from your metadata. I can't think of any use to which they might want to put your photographs where it would be a problem.

Usually when companies ask for copyright notices to be removed, it is because there is something actually printed in the image - quite common on public sites like Facebook. But having your copyright data in the metadata does not make it appear on a printed image.
