    Is there a way to view the metadata from both the”other application” and LR to decide which one is correct before choosing?

      Unfortunately, not that I know of.

      Metadata is a bit of a Wild Wild West at the moment, without any real standardization. Since metadata can essentially be anything, Metadata written in one program might be completely invisible to another program.

      Lightroom can store metadata in its catalog, or read it from the file. You just have to decide that either the catalog information is always correct, or the file information is always correct, and stick to it. Personally, I like attaching the metadata on the file itself.

    Is there a way to view the metadata from both the “other application” and from LR3 before deciding which settings to choose?

    can it be don only one by one? Is there a way to choose the same for several photos?
