Copyright information

This may be a very dumb question. I entered the name for both photographer and the copyright holder and clicked the option to "embed copyright data" on the menu. What else must be done for the photos to be produced with the info to be embedded? I am downloading photo on iPhoto on my mac and copyright info never appears.

This is probably more to do with iphoto than anything else. You could check with a different program to ensure that the copyright is embedded, as more than likely, iphoto isn't reading the exif properly.
It sounds like you did your part of things correctly.

iPhoto doesn't do very much with EXIF. Aperture does a lot more.

ExifTool will show all of the EXIF data but it is a command line program.

GraphicConverter has ExifTool built in. Just open a picture and click the info button.

Just a thought:

Are you expecting it to show in the photo? If so, that will not happen; it's in the exif info.
