Releases

DeepMeta stores a centralized list of all your Model and Property releases. This means you can re-use them across batches. This can be useful in certain cases like self-portrait releases, but remember that iStock normally requires a separate release for each photoshoot.

In the main DeepMeta window, click the "Releases" section in the left-hand list:

This will bring up the release list:

Note that each of these releases can be assigned to multiple files in multiple batches.

Adding releases to DeepMeta

Click the Add Model Release or Add Property Release button on the main DeepMeta toolbar to add releases:

The release can be a JPG, PNG or PDF file. Note that for PDF files, only the first pages is shown in the DeepMeta preview, however the entire PDF will be uploaded to iStock.

Assigning releases

You can assign releases to files in the File Details window.

To add new releases from within the File Details window: click the "+ Model" or "+ Property" button:
