Resources for Graphic Artists Guild webinar

My blog has a pretty good search function. There’s a box at the bottom of every page. You can use it to find information on lots of topics. Also at the bottom of each page is a link to the IPTC’s online metadata reader. You can use that to check to see if metadata is on any image you may find.
