Is there a way to copy the photo attributes in Adobe Lightroom? Attributes would look like "Sony α6000 | 16mm | ISO 100 | f/9.0 | 1/125 sec".

I would then be able to paste along with the photo when using Instagram or other sharing sites. I could manually enter the info but would be easier to copy. I see the menu item Metadata > Copy Metadata but it does not list these attributes and all of the fields presented are blank.

I would suggest the LR/Instagram plugin. From their Publisher Custom Template support page,

You can set the template in Publishing Manager (right click and select Edit settings to open).

These custom templates are set in Publishing Manager settings

The default template is "{caption} {hashtag}"

Thus, to also publish the metadata you want to show, and assuming you wanted to also publish the photo's Caption text, you could use the following custom template:

{caption} {hashtag} ({cameraMake} {cameraModel} | {focalLength} | {isoSpeedRating} | {aperture} | {shutterSpeed})

LR/Instagram is free to try, and only $10 for the full-featured registration.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Aganju from the Lightroom Plug-in Manager, after adding LR/Instagram: This plugin is distributed with a shareware model. You can try it freely, and if you find it useful, you are encouraged to pay a one time registration fee of $10. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ You text says ‘LR/**Lightroom** is free to try, and only 10$...’ LR costs 10 per month. \$\endgroup\$
