Tagging and Finding Your Files

Did you know that you can add information into your digital files so that information travels with them when you copy, send, or save them? This information (metadata) can be used to assit with finding, sorting, and describing your files when they are on your computer or within a server / cloud storage folder. Embedding information directly into your files means that you can note data such as creator, subjects, copyright, and other tags without needing to alter your file content. If you have large collections of image files or documents that you re-use often and could use some help finding or organizing them, this session may be for you. Come to learn about why this works and how you can do this for your own files.
