Shooting with the Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) details the features, controls, and options in the Canon Rebel T3i camera. Author Ben Long provides an overview of a digital single lens reflex (SLR) camera and reviews the Canon Rebel T3i camera's components and basics of operation, including changing lenses, navigating the menus, shooting in Auto mode, and reviewing and managing photos on the camera’s LCD screen. The course also covers white balance options, advanced metering and autofocus controls, flash, and shooting HD video, and includes a chapter on sensor and camera maintenance.
Amongst all the other metadata that's stored with your image there's a copyright field where you can put your name and copyright information. You can add this metadata using your image editor, but you can also configure your camera so that the copyright information gets added to every single image you shoot. Having your copyright included with your images provides a fair amount of legal protection, should you find that someone has used an image without your permission. You enter your copyright information using a menu command. I'm going to go here into the menu over here, to the third tools menu, to Copyright information, hit set.
There are four options. I cannot choose Display copyright info or Delete copyright info right now, because I don't have any in here to display or delete. So those are grayed out. I'm going to enter author's name. I get these two fields. This upper field is where my name will be displayed as I type it. This lower field is an alphabet that I can pick out my name from. There is a little hint here what to do. There is a Q button and next to it, it shows two squares with an arrow going back and forth between them. That indicates that pressing the Q button swaps me back and forth between these two fields. So I can come down here and now I just use these arrow keys to come through and pick out my name.
If I need to I can back space by using the trashcan button. If I wanted to just give up on these, I can hit the Info button to cancel. When I'm done, I can hit the menu button to accept my entries. So I'm going to do that now. I am going to hit menu and that should take my name. Now Display lights up as does Delete. I can also if I want enter copyright details. This is just a space where I could write copyright and the year just to let it piece together a full copyright display. I'm not going to do that now, because that would take a little while and if I go up here to Display, you can see that that's in there.
So this information will travel with my images whether they are JPEG or RAW. They will be stored in the metadata. If you sell your camera you may want to take this out of there or maybe you want to put it in so that you've got your copyright on other people's images. If you buy a used camera you want to check and make sure that this is cleared out and set with your name. This is a good idea to put your information in here. It does give you a little bit of legal protection if you find that someone has appropriated one of your images.
