Revised IPTC Core & Extensions released

The IPTC has approved a new specification of their Photo Metadata Standard.

This includes the the slightly updated IPTC Core 1.1 Schema, and the the brand new IPTC Extension 1.0 Schema which complements and extends the set of IPTC Core metadata properties. Download the new IPTC specification to see the new options available, including a set of PLUS fields that are shared with the IPTC.

The IPTC photo metadata working group will be working over the summer to develop an updated version of the User's Guide. After reviewing the specifications you are welcome to send comments and views to the IPTC Photo Metadata Yahoo group.
