I usually prefer not to add copyright information directly when taking photos with my camera. However, when exporting JPEGs with Lightroom, I would like the photos to contain copyright information. I couldn't see an option to add copyright information to my photos when exporting with Lightroom. Is this possible in any way?
Yes, it is possible. There are two ways:
- Once a photo is imported into Lightroom, add copyright info from the library module. It will be included when you export the image.
- Create a preset with copyright information, and apply it on import. This will mean all your photos will have the metadata already in the Lightroom DB.
The second option is what I use since all cameras do not support embedded copyright info. It also lets me once a year update the preset to have the current year in the copyright metadata.
