Chapter 16. Controlling Image Output > Inserting File Information into a Docume...

Inserting File Information into a Document

When you save a document, you have the ability to save more than just color information. You can save copyright, camera, and even image category information. This data is saved with the file as metadata in the XMP format (Extensible Metadata Platform), and can be accessed by any application that reads XMP data. In addition, if the image is a photograph, you can save data on the type of image, where it was shot, the camera used, even information on shutter speed and F-Stop. That information will not only protect your intellectual property, but will supply you with vital statistics on exactly how you created that one-of-a-kind image.

If the picture was taken with a digital camera that records Metadata, much of this information will already be filled out.
