Last Friday night I attended an overview presentation about the use of metadata in digital files at MCAD, presented by David Reicks and made possible by the Stock Artists Alliance Photo Metadata Project, thanks to a Digital Preservation award from the Library of Congress. I had posted last spring about the getMetaSmart website and the upcoming presentations around the country. I was unaware that Minneapolis had been added to the tour, and found out last minute and decided to attend.
The meeting was informational, going into into uber-geek depth, much of which I was unable to absorb. No worries, everything is on the website at photometadata.org… videos, tutorials, and tons of articles. Make sure you check it out and get MetaSmart!
