    Are there any differences in how Lightroom stores metadata in .PNG files vs. the other file types you listed .TIF, .PSD, .LPG & DNG?

    hi Mike, great explanation, thank you, only one question, you say;

    "You can also instruct Lightroom to output that metadata information (including copyright info, keywords, etc. as well as the history steps) to the image metadata (the sidecar file in the case of raw files). You can either set Lightroom to do this automatically…"

    how I do I change this setting to do so automatically?
    cheers, Luke
