Photographers who do not understand their basic rights tend to approach legal issues with blissful ignorance, extreme caution, or reckless abandon. Foolish souls may cross the lines to obtain images, while overly cautious photographers may miss out on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities in fear of legal repercussions. In the end, each of these photographers suffers as a result of not understanding the legal issues associated with photography. In this book, intellectual property attorney and photographers-rights advocate Bert Krages spells out exactly what you need to know to protect yourself and your business when planning, shooting, publishing, and selling your photography. -- Bert P. Krages

Copyright Workflow for Photographers: Protecting, Managing & Sharing Digital Images will help photographers build best practices for copyright registration and management into their existing image processing workflows using the popular Adobe® Creative Cloud™ software suite. Part legal manual, part software manual, the book will go beyond existing offerings in the “copyright for photographers” space by providing step-by-step guidance on protecting, managing, and enforcing intellectual property rights in their images using specific software tools. Written by a photographer, who is also serves a senior policy advisor at the U.S. Copyright Office, there is no other resource better equipped to help photographers through this essential, yet hard-to-tackle, topic! The book’s workflow approach capitalizes on widespread interest in the photography community in copyright protection and enforcement, enhancing digital workflows, and popular workflow software such as Lightroom®, Photoshop®, and Acrobat®. This book is focused on U.S. copyright laws and requirements. Readers outside the U.S. may find it useful if they intend to register their images in the United States, or post images to websites based in the United States.
