In this class Terry teaches you how to create and apply metadata templates, how to manually enter IPTC information, the value of keywording, how name people using facial recognition, how to apply location information, and how to manage that metadata during export. The more information you apply to your photographs the better able you’ll be to organize and find them over time. BUY COURSE
