One of the worst things about JPG images for any website design professional is the lossy compression damage that occurs when opening and saving files. A quick and easy way to add metadata without damaging your JPGs is to use Adobe Bridge. Adobe Bridge is quickly becoming an essential tool for this web design company – not only as a asset management tool, but an image editing tool.

Even better is the ability to edit multiple files at the same time – here’s how. Select the images you want to add your metadata to and click on the IPTC tab. This will open a drop down menu that will present you with a variety of fields – just add your data to each of the fields and click the little check mark in the lower right-hand corner of the tab.

That’s it – you’ve successfully added metadata to your JPG images without even opening a single file.

Now you can focus on that website design rather than poor image quality.
