Task 6 How to Organize Images with Custom Metadata

The photo industry is developing some consistent standards for how images should be organized, categorized, and labeled. There's EXIF data that profiles camera information and IPTC data for journalistic information such as writers, sources, and deadlines. (File Data, EXIF, Camera Raw, GPS, and IPTC information is also referred to as metadata.) Then there are basic keywords and comments for keeping things straight. Photoshop has organized all this information with the Metadata and Keywords tabs in Bridge.

1. Create Keywords and Sets

With Bridge open, click the Keywords tab and click the New Keyword icon. A new keyword appears in the list, ready to be labeled. Type the desired keyword, and repeat this step to create a list of keywords you expect to use often. To help organize a lengthy list of keywords, click New Keyword Set to create a new folder, which you can use to organize keywords into thematic groups.
