Meta Data

Metadata has become a key driving force in the image industry. If the information about the image is carried in the image file, it can be passed on from one party to another without the need for separate sheets of information or unnecessary re-keying.

 Here you will find:

  • The BAPLA Pic4Press metadata panel
  • Scripts for checking images for metadata
