Support Embedded Metadata/Contact Information Manifesto

Posted Sep. 28th, 2012 by Daniel J. Cox

I was recently made aware of a great new website called Pro-Imaging. It has a lot of good information on all things for professionals as well as advanced amateurs and even the up-and-coming photo enthusiasts. It’s never too early to learn about the need to retain the rights to your photos. Even if you aren’t a so-called professional, what if you could pay for another lens, camera body or world travel with the sale of your pictures? Take a look at this website. It has a lot to offer on the ins and outs of the business of photography. Jim Lewis, a good guy who travels with us now and again, brought this website to my attention in relation to the issue of web publishers stripping metadata. See more about this issue by clicking on the Embedded Metadata Manifesto. You can also read about Thompson/Reuters Stripping Metadata in an earlier Blog Post.

Pro-Imaging web site for all photographers wanting to know the ins and outs on the business of photography. You don’t need to be a professional to participate or learn. Take a look to make sure you know the facts on retaining the rights to your photos.

    Daniel:

    Pro-imaging.org is a supporter of the Embedded Metadata Manifesto, along with a large number of other associations, companies and organizations. See http://www.embeddedmetadata.org/about-us-contact-us.php for a full list of those supporting, and http://www.embeddedmetadata.org/embedded-metatdata-manifesto.php for what the manifesto professes.

    Also worth checking out is the survey that’s been underway showing which social media services and photo sharing services actually do preserve your photo metadata. http://www.controlledvocabulary.com/socialmedia/

    Thanks for promoting this idea to other photographers and image users.

    David
