What is metadata?

Metadata is simply data about data.

For example, one form of metadata is called EXIF (EXchangeable Image File). This is assigned to a photograph at its point of capture. It could include information such as the model of camera used, the lens used, the location (latitude and longitude) of the photograph and the date and time the image was captured.

Another form of metadata is designed to help you catalog and search using tags and other attributes such as copyright information, non-destructive instructions as to how an image should be output (for a particular use case scenario) and keywords assigned to assist in searches.
