How to Add Metadata to Your Photos

In light of the concerns about orphan works and to possibly be eligible for enhanced damages when your copyright management information is removed for infringements, it is important to add your contact information to your photos. Laura Cotterman explains in her video tutorial how to create a metadata template to quickly add your contact information to your images in Photoshop or Bridge.

After you add your metadata, make sure that you don't lose it when using the "save for web" function in Photoshop! See my November 20, 2007, blog for more information.
