International Press Telecommunications Council IPTC Logo

Camera makers, photographers, editors, software designers and others who have a stake in professional imaging will be meeting in Florence, Italy on June 7, 2007 for the Photo Metadata Conference.

They will thresh over details on how to improve the interoperability of photo metadata. They will discuss better ways to describe photos and related rights and permissions information, and will learn how crucial data generated by cameras can improve the editing and long-term resale of images. Representatives from standardization bodies and vendors llike Adobe, Apple, Canon, Fotoware, Hasselblad and Microsoft will be there.

The metadata conference is organized by two major news industry organizations, IPTC and Ifra, and is sponsored by Adobe.

    I take photos of construction job sites and need to include easily………….did I mention easily, metadata and sometimes comments to the photos. I also need to email this to to attorneys, architechs, engineers etc. as well as print them. Many software programs will allow us to print this info but not email it. Which software can do both……………..easily?
