Image Attributes

The term attributes is probably already familiar to readers with an IT background. Attributes are additional data that describe other data. In the case of digital image data files, attributes are the formal and technical details known as metadata, which we described in detail earlier in section 1.9.

In the analog photographic world, recorded image attributes were kept to a minimum, but digital technology makes them easy and often extremely practical to use.
