Photographers and photography websites are in for a good time with Google Images taking the route to give credit where it is due. Now on, photos can contain information about the creator and other associated information in the form of metadata. What’s more, the use of metadata will open up the possibility of using keywords embedded in images. Photography websites can now have their images displayed when searchers use their targeted keywords.

In fact, websites that deal with quality high-definition images can now monetize their photos better with Google Images. With their credit and information available for every photo, the copyright acts are bound to get tighter. Instances of photos being misused or discredited will get fewer, that is the hope of the netizens in general.

Let us, instead, look at what this credit and metadata is all about. This metadata and credit title can be embedded into the image itself. You have to understand that this information is not automatically embedded. You have to do it separately. When both these information boxes are ticked, Google will display the information along with the image.

There is one aspect you have to consider, especially if you are using WordPress plugins. A number of these plugins can actually remove the metadata from the image. This happens by default. Before you use these plugins, check the settings carefully before going ahead with it, so that the embedded image information is not deleted. Here are some tools that allow you to add metadata and other info: Adobe Lightroom, Adobe PhotoShop, GIMP, ACDSee Pro, PhotoMechanic, FotoStation, Extensis Portfolio and ExitTool, among others.
