  1. Hello,
    I want to categorize thousends of digital pictures with title, keywords,
    photografer etc. A lot of program have that function, but is there a
    standard so that i don't need to start all over when changing album-program?

  2. Good question - very good question - if you get an
    answer I also want to know.

    Unfortunately I guess no. There are lots of programs
    that do this. But I guess they are all propriarety.

    One standard is HTML of course. It is not the best one
    for this purpose, but it is a standard and it does
    what it does quite well.

  3. album-program?

    The IPTC header information fields are used for that purpose, but the way
    the image is categorized is a function of the software parsing those fields,
    and how the user fills in the available fields.
