    I would like to tag my library of digital images so that I can later request
    adhoc slideshows containing photos that have certain keywords associated
    with them. What is the best way to do this without getting locked into a
    proprietary solution. I will be investing a lot of time tagging a large
    collection of existing photos and would like the freedom to switch album
    software down the road without losing all my tagging info. Is exif/iptc
    meant for this type of thing? Can anyone recommend the best way to do this
    and which software supports such a open standard?

  2. Photoshop Album 2 allows tagging of pictures. I doubt if there is any
    tagging standard. Photoshop Elements 3 is supposed to include improved photo
    editing plus the features in Album.

    So is EXIF/IPTC or JPEG Comments not considered a generic standard that is
    meant to be used for this type of thing?
