How to set up your camera to automatically add Copyright Information to your photo

Hey there everyone!

In this quick video I’m going to show you how to set up your camera to automatically add the Author and Copyright Information to all of your photos.

Most modern camera bodies allow copyright information to be baked into the EXIF data upon image capture. In some cases this information can be added directly through the back panel of the camera while others require your camera to be tethered to a computer and manufacturer provided software used.

By setting up your camera to automatically add this information will not only prove ownership of a photo, if ever in question, but may also help recover a lost memory card or even a stolen camera.

So, if your camera gives you the ability to add copyright information, do it now! You’ll thank me later. I promise you!
