Step 1: Download our panel

Right-click (or control-click, on a Mac) this link to our panel file and choose to save the file, not just "open" it. Under Windows save it to the Desktop. Under OS X save the file to

/Users/{YOUR USERNAME}/Library/Application Support/Adobe/XMP/Custom File Info Panels

Step 1a: On Windows, move the file to the right place

Mac users can skip to Step 2.

In Windows, the file should go in this folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\{YOUR USERNAME}\Application Data\Adobe\XMP\Custom File Info Panels

where {YOUR USERNAME} is replaced with your Windows username. The easiest way do this is to save the file to the desktop, and then to:

  1. Click on the Start Menu
  2. Click "Run..."
  3. Type Desktop\..\Application Data
  4. Click "OK"
  5. Open the "Adobe" folder inside there
  6. Open the "XMP" folder inside there, or create it if there is no XMP folder
  7. Open the "Custom File Info Panels" folder inside, or create it if there is no folder by that name
  8. Drag the XMP file you saved to your desktop to the folder that just opened
  9. Close the folder

You may have to create the "XMP" folder under "Adobe", and you may also have to create the "Custom File Info Panels" folder under "XMP".

Step 2: Restart Photoshop and notice the beautiful new panel

Once you quit and restart Photoshop, you can look at the Creative Commons metadata attached to a file by clicking "File Info" inside the "File" menu at the top left.
