Its architecture should lend itself to a wide range of uses from portable digital cameras through to advanced pre-press, medical imaging and other key sectors. JPEG 2000 refers to all parts of the standard: Part 1 (the core) is now published as an International Standard, five more parts (2-6) are complete or nearly complete, and four new parts (8-11) are under development. (See Background information.) The parts are: Part 1, Core coding system (intended as royalty and license-fee free - NB NOT patent-free) Part 2, Extensions (adds more features and sophistication to the core) Part 3, Motion JPEG 2000 Part 4, Conformance Part 5, Reference software (Java and C implementations are available) Part 6, Compound image file format (document imaging, for pre-press and fax-like applications, etc.)

Web - Photo Metadata - Metadata are critical to photo business. The IPTC Photo Metadata Working Group tested about 15 social media networks which support the sharing of photos how they support the persistence of embedded metadata, in particular the fields which are relevant for claiming rights.

The results of March 2013 are shown on and provide some hope: a small majority of the networks keeps the metadata but there are also systems which strips it out. Read also the news release about it. A campaign has been launched to embed descriptive and rights information in digital media and to retain it during the whole life cycle as outlined by IPTC's Embedded Metadata Manifesto (EMM).The initiative has been launched by the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC), the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A's), and the Association of National Advertisers (ANA), with the support of trade organisations representing visual arts and photo agencies.

IPTC Web - IPTC Core & Extension - IPTC Core & Extension = the IPTC Photo Metadata standard. The IPTC Extension schema is a supplemental schema to the IPTC Core.

It provides: Fields to provide additional information about the content of the image, e.g. name or locatation shown in the image, an organisation or event featured by the image, ... and moreFields to improve administration, like e.g. for registering the image with a registryFields for cultural heritage photos, including a title, a creator, a creation date and information about the source of an artwork or object shown in the imageFields to precisely define the licensing terms and the copyrights of a photograph. The IPTC-PLUS Photo Metadata Toolkit for Adobe CS includes a user guide for all IPTC Extension fields for Adobe products from CS3 to CS6 and adds IPTC Extension fields to CS3 and CS4 by a plug-in panel.

IPTC Extension 1.1 was approved in June 2009 and its specification is published as part of the IPTC Photo Metadata Standards specification document. Note: XMP is Adobe's sole intellectual property and not IPTC's.
