    IPTC would probably be the best option when it comes to transportability between different image applications, as it is arguably the most widely recognized standard, but be aware that not all applications support IPTC.

    In Windows 10, right clicking on an image, selecting properties and then the Details tab, displays the IPTC title, subject, and Tags (keywords). I'm not a Mac user, so I can't say whether the macOS has that capability.

    I personally use both ACDSee metadata for the benefits it provides within ACDSee, and I embed it in the images (or in the sidecar files), and I also embed the applicable fields in the images IPTC metadata.

  • In the absence of facial recognition, how to record who is in an image?

    I'm an Aperture refugee. I want to be able to capture, in a permanent, embedded way, who is in a picture. Without facial recognition in Photo Studio for Mac, I'd like an effective way to do it now. I'd like to see that move with the picture if I go to different software/platform or just view it in the OS (macOS, in my case). In most cases, it'd be only a few names per image. I see places in the EXIF (image description, image/user comment), IPTC(content/keywords), ACDSee Metadate (caption, notes, keyword), or I could create categories and subcategories (like people/<lastname>/<firstname>), and several other things. They all seems like compromises.

    I want to find a decent way to get that stuff embedded without slowing down my workflow too much.

    Thoughts, anyone?
