You can also do it directly in the K-x too, not just in the K-7...

The other way is via image processing software - like for example Lightroom, or PhotoMe, or IrfanView, or many other software applications that let you edit the EXIF or IPTC metadata of your images.

I was happy to see this in the K-X but it seems to slow down the write time significantly, so much so that I have not used this feature in camera.

That's what it was. Something was slowing down my write time too. I had all of the corrections turned off and didn't even bother o think about the copyright info. Thanks.

Many of these programs can be configured to automatically add copyright and contact info while downloading the images from your camera/card. That's how I do it in ACDSee. Or you can run a batch job after import, for images already downloaded.

I do the same as Marc, with a wee batch file thingy on Adobe Bridge before going into CS3.

It's easy to tag Metadata to imges as you download them onto your computer if you use Bridge.

Open Bridge Under the Tools menu click create new Metadata Template. Enter the data you want into the various fields, this can be your name, your copyright notice, your e-mail, your web address. your home address and telephone, anything you want, give the template a name and save.

When you plug your card into the card reader the Bridge dialogue box opens where you can save to two loacations, enter meaningful names for your pics etc. at the bottom of the screen select your saved Metadata from the drop down menu and every image will be tagged with the info you set in the template.

I use a free program called Exiftools. It can list or modify all the fields in the metadata, and it can add new fields (like name and copyright date) that aren't there to begin with. With a single command, you could add your name to all the files in a Windows folder.

AFAIK, though, it is only available for Windows, not Mac. It is a command line utility, meaning it doesn't have a nice GUI. If you're not comfortable working with the DOS prompt command line in Windows, it may take some getting used to.

Really? Wow. I'll have to test this on the K-7 to see if it has a measurable effect.

Having the distortion and chromatic aberration corrections turned on will no doubt take time for the camera to process, but adding the Photographer Information saved to EXIF feature enabled should not slow the camera down, certainly not on my K-7.
