Metadata in Adobe Bridge
Today we will look at adding metadata to files with Adobe Bridge. Please open Bridge and access one of your files through it.
We will watch this tutorial to get you started and then go through the steps together:
Adobe TV – Learn How to Add Metadata and Keywords to Files
Note: while the last tutorial is based on CS4 – it is still useful for CS5 and CS6 users.
The next step is to apply the metadata to various images. Make sure to think about the Keywords before you choose them. They will be instrumental when web users are trying to access work through a Search Engine like Google or Yahoo!. Please do that now in class while I walk around and witness it.
