New Year, New Metadata

While the new year is still young and you’re kicking around the idea of some photography-related new year’s resolutions, consider this little tip: update your metadata presets in Photoshop and Lightroom to show 2013 as your copyright year. I did it just the other day (at the same time I updated my catalogs and archived the last remaining bits of 2012). If you’re up to speed on Metadata, this serves as a simple reminder. But if you’re not yet a convert to the importance of digitally embedding your name, contact information and copyright in your digital image files… Well, you’ve got the perfect resolution right there to start off the new year. Get your metadata and copyright houses in order in 2013—a great goal for any photographer.
