Casamento Metadata Policy
The metadata or EXIF data information stored within digital images allow users to identify information about that file such as size, resolution, creation date/time and type. Our metadata always includes contact information, copyright status and the photographer's name.
The image usage may be subject to certain conditions and will usually be subject to copyright restrictions. Aside from copyright there are three types of moral rights:
● The right of a photographer to be credited or attributed as the author of his/her work;
● The right of a photographer to prevent others being named as the author of their work; and
● The right of a photographer to ensure that his/her work is not subjected to derogatory treatment.
It is the user's responsibility to ensure that:
● published images are not being used outside of the agreed Usage Terms as agreed between the photographer and user;
● published images are not breaching copyright laws; and
● published images are not breaching the moral rights of the photographer.
How to read Casamento Metadata
Most professional photographers include metadata in their images to enable the images to be connected to them. If the user is attributing an image but is uncertain as to who created the photo or artwork, here are three ways to check the metadata to find out:
● Locate the image using Windows Explorer
● Right-click on the image and select 'Properties'
● Click on 'Details' tab to view metadata
● Locate the image using Finder
● Right-click on the image and select 'Open With Preview'
● Select 'Tools' menu then 'Show Inspector'
● Click on 'i' tab (More Info) then click on 'IPTC' and 'Exif' tabs to view metadata
● Open image in Photoshop
● Select 'File' menu then 'File Info'
● Click on 'Basic' or 'IPTC' tabs to view metadata
Many social media websites (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Flikr etc.) strip EXIF metadata from images once uploaded. This means that important information about the photo (such as copyright and the photographer’s contact details), are stripped out. This renders it very difficult, if not impossible, to identify the photographer and know whether a photo is subject to copyright or not.
