Monday Video – Working with Metadata

Metadata is the less glamorous side of Lightroom but probably just as important as any other area. It serves several purposes, such as allowing you to protect your photos with copyright information or add personal contact information so anyone seeing your photos will know how to contact you. It’s also a killer searching mechanism for finding your photos because the data that’s already embedded in them when you press the shutter is invaluable. So in this week’s video we’re going to take a quick look at where the metadata lives in Lightroom and how you can go about working with it.
