This week, I reach down into the photo goodie bag and pull out a few treats for the Halloween season. Sweets include: adding metadata to your images so people know who took the photo and its copyright status, my camera gear kit for an upcoming trip to the Caribbean, an update on Mac OS X Leopard for photographers, and a few publishing notes for November.
File description fields in Photoshop that enable you to add metadata to your images.
