The IPTC has approved a new specification of their Photo Metadata Standards.
These include 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 specifications to see the new options available, which include a set of PLUS fields that are shared with the IPTC Core.
The IPTC photo metadata working group will be working over the summer to develop an updated version of the User's Guide and custom panels that can be used in the Photoshop Creative Suite. After reviewing the specifications you are welcome to send comments and views to the IPTC Photo Metadata Yahoo group.
