Mary Moseley of Be PhotoWise joins me for this episode of the Scrapbooking Inspiration Podcast.
Listen in as we chat to about what we can do use metadata to make photo projects easier and faster as well as preserve our photo information for the future.
Metadata: Your Gift to the Future
Adding Descriptions (metadata) to Digital Photographs. Your Gift to the Future.
Our digital photographs are meaningful, they document our fleeting memories. However, with the advent of digital photography we now create far more photos than we ever did in the past. Our digital photo collections are becoming larger and it’s hard to find specific images. If your digital images are difficult for you to manage and navigate, how will your loved ones be able to easily access them in the future?
Meta data is information about the digital photo file itself. Adding descriptions and tags (metadata) makes is much easier and faster to organize and search your digital photo collections. You have to proceed with caution because many social media websites, photo websites and software applications do not embed the metadata directly into the image file itself, but into a “sidecar” that is only attached with the image while it’s being used by that specific application. Learning how to imbed metadata directly into the image file itself ensures that the information will always be there.
Some software applications and photo sharing sites do not follow the “Photo Metadata Standard” which means your metadata may get lost between applications. Learn which applications you should be using to ensure that your metadata always travels with your image.
Embedding metadata into your photos adds meaning to your collection. It’s your gift to the future.
