Adding Other Properties to a File

In addition to tags, you can add other identifying information to a file. Again, including this information will enable you to search based on any of the properties you add. You can add a title, comments, author, category, subject, rating, camera model, and other information. Note that the properties available for adding depend on the file type. For instance, ratings are used for pictures, but not for Word documents.
