Metadata is data about your data—information about your images and documents, such as the creation date, file size, location tags, author, and much more. It’s common to work with metadata in programs like Adobe Photoshop or even Illustrator, but did you know that you can add metadata to your InDesign projects, too?
In this week’s InDesign Secrets, David Blatner shows you how to add file info to your documents. As David says, it’s like putting on a luggage tag before you check your baggage; you don’t have to add it, but it really comes in handy for identifying it later. Plus, metadata is searchable by Google and other text engines, which makes it great for SEO.
