The subject of IPTC comes up over and over. And it’s been awhile since I did a general review of options at IPTC Summary: Photo Metadata Editors.

Anyone else over the Moon about Photo Mechanic or is it just me? I’ve gotten more photo work done in the past 2 weeks working at it part-time than I have in the entire two years previous staying up all night. It makes me wonder what I was doing all that time.

If you’re looking to annotate your photos for searching and the edification of future generations, this is it. Photo Mechanic is sublime. Every time I look I find another useful feature. Here’s some of my favorites so far:

In my younger years, I was a stamp collector. Heady stuff for an 8-year old, down at the local library every Saturday buying 1 cent stamps of kings, queens and presidents. My, how we’ve grown.
It might be too late for mailing your Christmas cards this year, but it’s never too late to make photo stamps out of your favorite ancestors. Or your favorite turtle. Or your favorite view. Or, quick for the holidays, you can make a gift of someone’s favorite pet, person or landscape. Lots of denominations available and only 5-7 days shipping in the U.S.
Turn your photos into real U.S. postage with PhotoStamps. They’re perfect for every occasion! Nothing much required. Just upload a jpg, choose a frame and the stamps are on their way. Gift cards also available. … [continued]
