Adding Metadata to Images in Photoshop CS5
Happy Holidays everyone! For this final TipSquirrel installment of 2010, we’ll take a look at how you can help protect your photos by applying important copyright and contact information (metadata) to your files, directly from Photoshop. Once that’s done we’ll take a look at how to include that same information in any versions of your file you create with Save for Web & Devices.

you can also add Creative Commons licensing metadata to your files with this free XMP FileInfo panel plugin. just make sure you use All Metadata when you save the file.
If you add a Creative Commons license to your image, you are potentially giving away any financial compensation to your image. It’s bad enough that people use your image without permission, but to encourage free use diminishes professional photographers’ ability to earn an income.
