Here are some short video tutorials that will help you get started,
narrated by Marc Rochkind.
For best results, show them fullscreen.
Introduction to Metadata - Part 1 (14:08)
Explains what EXIF and IPTC metadata are,
how they're created and used,
and what ExifExtreme, ExifChanger, and Ingestamatic can do with them.
The first two of those apps are for MacOS only, but the video is still useful for both MacOS and Windows users.
Introduction to Metadata - Part 2 (8:33)
Mostly about ExifChanger, which is MacOS only.
Windows users may want to skip this part.
Getting Started With Ingestamatic (3:32)
Ingestamatic's Main Window (3:57)
Ingestamatic Settings (5:10)
Custom Fields (6:14)
Automatic and Manual Geotagging (10.28)
I used to call myself Rochkind Development, Basepath Associates, and a few other high-minded names, but my long-time customers know it's just me.
And that's who you get if you need support.
