FREE  /  Limit of 30 participants has been reached.  

Registration for this workshop is now closed.

This 2 hour mini-workshop examines how metadata is embedded into digital image files, the tools used for reading and writing it, and how metadata can be used effectively for data acquisition, in workflow management, and to support the exchange of information through delivery of image assets complete with embedded content. Through hands-on exercises, participants will learn how to create, edit, export, and import metadata for single files and image file batches using Adobe Bridge.

The workshop will include exercises using the Visual Resources Association's custom XMP file info panel as well as the standard info panels used with Adobe Photoshop and Bridge. Workshop exercises will be put in the context of data standards such as VRA Core 4, EXIF and IPTC.

Participants will benefit most from the hands-on exercises if they bring a laptop with Adobe Photoshop/Bridge CS 4, 5, or 6 installed. Participants without laptops will be able to follow and learn from the demonstrations on the projector screen.  Please note that participants wishing to perform hands-on exercises must provide their own laptop.
