    Excellent discussion of Metadata in LR! Your caution against the performance hit for having LR automatically write changes to the file really isn’t an issue in LR anymore (not since 2.1) unless your computer is slower. If you have a relatively new computer and plenty of RAM and disk space then autowriting the data doesn’t start to drag you down until around the 20,000 image level.

    Keep up the great work!

    I create a new catalog for every shoot. I can’t figure out how to make lightroom 3 save metadata. Every time I create a new catalog, I have to create a new metadata preset. How to I set lightroom to access a global metadata preset?

      Lightroom Catalogs are separate databases. They do not talk to one another. However, you can export the preset, and then import it into the new catalogs you create.
