Metadata Camp was fun! I'm so grateful for all of the knowledge and expertise that Andrew and Rachel — such highly respected industry experts — were able to share in a way that was easy to understand! I am truly excited to incorporate this process to better assist my clients in preserving the family stories captured in their photos through the use of metadata for generations to come.
