"If you are mystified by metadata schema, parametric image editing, image ingestion, or how to tag images with GPS data, this is the resource you need. Its focus is on practical rather than theoretical issues, but the author does not use that as an excuse to gloss over the technical stuff. He is an exceptional technical communicator, and the publishers have produced an exceptionally well-designed book. "
