Image Info Toolkit is an easy to learn, but powerful application that handles text information hidden within JPEG, TIFF and DNG image files. It does this by using the IPTC-information fields that are embedded in the header portion of your image file. This feature (found as the File>> File info in Adobe Photoshop®) enables you to read and write image information data such as caption, keywords, copyright, date etc. to these types of digital image files. Thus, using Image Info Toolkit protects your images from the effect of additional "lossy"; compression, which is unavoidable if you have to save a jpeg file in jpeg mode a second time (the changes are only made to the header of the file, not the image data). Text information will be saved within the digital image file according to the IPTC/NAA standard and can be read and processed by various image processing software programs (such as Adobe Photoshop®, Corel Photopaint®, Canto Cumulus, Extensis Portfolio etc. and of course by BlueBox basic our powerful database solution, which is able to built an instantly searchable database for the IPTC hidden in your images.
Keep in mind that many image editors, (including Adobe Photoshops® SAVE FOR WEB function) will not allow the saving of any image "meta-data"; such as that represented by the IPTC. In this situation, the Image Info Toolkit is a great way to automatically get that information back into your files. If you are adding the same basic contact info you can even use the optional batch processing feature, to do essentially the same thing as actions in photoshop.
In addition to reading and editing image file information Image Info Toolkit offers the possibility to create and edit your own hierarchical keyword catalog in four mayor languages and exchange whole catalogs or parts of it with other Image Info Toolkit users.
