In This Chapter

  • Adding notes

  • Examining metadata in Adobe Bridge

  • Finding out information about Photoshop and your computer

Photoshop offers all sorts of ways to find and add information about your images: The Info panel keeps data about X and Y coordinates or color information at the ready, depending on what tools you're using. At the bottom of the image window, the status bar shows your file's size and dimensions. The keyword feature in Adobe Bridge enables you to add keywords that help categorize images.

In this chapter, I cover other ways to find information about files or Photoshop itself. These methods may not be for everybody, but if you do need them, they're handy to have. The notes feature lets you add comments for colleagues or let others leave comments for you. In Adobe Bridge, photographers, journalists, and others who need to use Photoshop files for specific applications will want to know about the Metadata tab, which enables you to view ITPC data, Camera Raw data, and more. And if you're looking for information about Photoshop or your computer, the Help menu offers a hodgepodge of information that you'd never think you need but can help when you're trying to troubleshoot patches, updates, plug-ins, and other system information.
