… discusses the efficient and reliable use
of Photo Metadata

Photo metadata is key to protecting images’ copyright and licensing information online. It is also essential for managing digital assets. Detailed and accurate descriptions about images ensure they can be easily and efficiently retrieved via search, by users or machine-readable code. This results in smoother workflow within organizations, more precise tracking of images, and increased licensing opportunities.

To achieve this goal IPTC supports photo agencies, stock photo libraries, cultural heritage archives and single photographers by this conference which his held each year since 2007 in conjunction with the CEPIC Congress.
