In the LR Library module, the metadata panel is set up to be OK for most people and exactly right for no one.

I use JFriedl's plugins for export to FB, Zenfolio and Twitter and these plugins add metadata fields that are viewable on the All Plugin Metadata option.

This option has more info that I want, like whether the photo has been uploaded to Zenfolio, but is also missing some that I want to know, like if the Title and Caption fields are filled and spelled correctly.
So I would always have to pull down different sets to see the title and caption fields.

So I downloaded his Metadata Viewer (Jeffrey's "Metadata-Viewer Preset Editor" Lightroom Plugin)

This plugin (donationware) doesn't allow me to edit the metadata themselves but only to edit or create a new set that will be added to the dropdown list.

So now I see a set of information that is useful for me.
I can tell from one look if the file has been uploaded and I can also edit the title and caption fields that the upload plugins use.

Lew, excellent info on using this plug-in. I had seen it, but never thought of using it in this way so never installed it. Will give it a try.

Thanks.
I actually edited my panel to add the 'at Zenfolio' field so I know where the photo is on Zenfolio (so I can find it )

Having that information available certainly makes using LR for uploads look like a good way to go. I had just been using the default panel to basically fill in the Title and Caption information.
