MAKING A CASE FOR METADATA

You capture, photoshop and prep that image file to share or post. Is embedding metadata a part of your workflow? We’ll share findings from our surveys, investigative studies, and anecdotal reports that will make the case why you won’t ever want to skip this essential step to more effectively promote, protect, manage and archive your digital images.

GETTING FOUND:
Using the Right Metadata Fields, Standards, and Tools

Exactly what kind of information do you need to embed to ensure that your images can be found, as well as ensure that YOU can be found? We’ll explain why captions and keywords are critical, along with entering copyright and contact information into every digital file. Then we'll guide you to use proper metadata standards and meta-friendly tools to ensure that the information you've now embedded can be easily accessed and read by others.

EMBEDDING METADATA IS EASY (Really!)

The final step: Getting that metadata into your images, quickly and painlessly. We’ll share some tips and hints to help you over the hurdles. We will demonstrate how to do this with a couple of the more popular software tools including Photoshop, Lightroom, Photo Mechanic and Expression Media.
