Types of metadata
Some metadata is standardized so it can be accessed by a wide range of devices and software. EXIF and IPTC are the most common metadata standards:
EXIF (Exchangeable Image File Format): Data typically recorded by the camera about the settings used for a photo. Most EXIF metadata is not editable. The EXIF data from the original photo (master file) is used for all versions that are derived from the master file (same source). Some examples of EXIF metadata are shutter speed, aperture, ISO, date, and time.
IPTC (International Press Telecommunications Council): Data added by the photographer such as image description, photographer information, copyright, and caption.
Corel AfterShot Pro also supports other metadata, some of which can be shared between different applications. This metadata includes:
• Color Labels
