This may be a stupid questions, so please excuse me if it's obvious to you.

I shoot mostly raw file with the EM-5. Everytime, I import the files into lightroom, it sets the caption to "OLUMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA." Normally, I wouldn't care, but I also use phanfare to host my pictures and the caption is displayed at the bottom of every picture. Is there a way to suppress the caption or change it? I know I can do it in lightroom, but sometimes, I forget.

I strip captions automatically on import into LR, adding copyright info at the same time.

Simply create and save a metadata preset with blank caption and any other information changes you want (I add copyright) then specify this preset in the import dialog. That's all there is to it; in future all imported files will have the metadata changed to match the preset.
