Contact: Graeme Cookson
Digital Imaging Consultant who has done extensive work with organisations such as The National Gallery of Ireland, Reuters Sports Photographers, The Royal Horticultural Society, Oxford University Press, The Open University, The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and The Science Photo Library.
Greame was commissioned by the International Press and Telecommunications Council (IPTC) to create metadata panels for the IPTC Core, IPTC Extension and PLUS schemas so that the data fields can be viewed and edited in Adobe Bridge CS3, CS4 and CS5.
The Image Passport and Image Visa Products produce an audit of content before uploading, this runs checks on as little or as much as you like and can amend and append data to the images. By doing this you know each image conforms to an industry standard for size and colour settings. It takes a minute or two but is worth its weight in gold for what it does.
A version of this could be run on each project you are uploading so that following on from the audit all content going forward will be of the standard you set.
