This week comes Lucky Feature #13. A feature so great, I forget to use it all the time. Seriously, don’t be like me: Every night as you go to bed—right after you finish saying “Good-night, Mary Ellen” and “Good-night, John Boy”—I want you to promise yourself, “I will remember to use File Info.” Because if you’re sending files out to clients or posting them on the Web, you need to document them. Complete with author and contact and copyright and, best of all, URL. Otherwise, when that image makes its rounds (as it inevitably will), who the hell will know who (you!!) made it?
It’s not a hard command to use. It’s just hard to get in the habit of using. Hopefully, this video will inspire you. Or cajole you. I don’t care which as long as it works.
