Metadata is information that’s collected at various points along the process of image creation. It’s invisibly added to your photos by your camera, computer and by you if you so choose. The type of information it contains varies but can include what brand of camera you used, the lens zoom length, camera mode used, exposure information and even serial numbers of your gear.
Post processing in Photoshop adds more information such as which version of Photoshop you used and when it was edited.
In this video I’ll show you how to add your own contact info to the metadata which can help reduce image theft. I’ll also show you how to control what metadata you share. Do you really want everyone to know you took your “latest” photo 8 years ago? Do you want to share your camera’s serial number? If the answer is no, this video will help.
