Examples of fields
Below is a menu of ready-made fields that come prepackaged with a new Chorus site. They are commonly-used fields which were originally defined in the IPTC standard.
|By-line||The name of the author or creator of a file. Eg. “Joe Simpson”.|
|By-line Title||The author or creator's professional position. Eg. “Senior Photographer, Top Traveller Magazine”.|
|Caption||A short, descriptive sentence that describe a file’s contents or meaning. Eg. "Sunset over Manly Beach".|
|City||The city in which the file was created. Eg. “Sydney”.|
|Copyright Notice||The copyright notice to be displayed with the image. Eg. “Copyright 2018 Traveller Mags Ltd”.|

|Credit||The individual or organization that should be credited for the file. Eg. “Joe Simpson, Royal Travel Photographers Society.”|
|Date Created||Users are given a calendar from which to select a day/month/year (see right for example).|
|Embargo Date||The first date on which the file may be used. If the file is an image or video, this file will not play or display until the embargo date. In Chorus, this will also cause a red banner and watermark to appear on the preview of the image if the embargo date is in the future.|
|Exif Creation Date||The Exchangeable image file format (Exif) Creation Date is automatically embedded in a file by the device that created it.|

|Import Date||The date and time that the file was imported into Chorus.|

|Special Instructions||A text field. Eg. “No reproduction other than internal magazines – email publications team for exceptions.”|
