Do You Include Analysis With the Picture?

Do you include some of your analysis as a part of the digital image you make from pictures? We’ve mentioned provenance before, but sometimes other clues may be used to date or identify the picture. While these things can be put in the “metadata” in some graphics programs, the reality is that some people don’t save the file and the metadata, they just “screenshot” the image as it appears online.

One can’t stop people from only using the image and not your analysis, but it makes it easier for those inclined to use it to use it.
