Just a quick one - basically I need to be able to read IPTC metadata on a Windows system. For example if i have a file that I add IPTC metadata to in Aperture (MAC OS) I then can't read that when I go into the properities of the file on a Windows (XP) system. All the EXIF information (on the picture, camera, author etc) is there. The main field I need to be able to view / search on is 'keywords' - there is a keywords field defined in IPTC, and in the file properties in Windows there is also a 'keywords' but it seems they are not the same.
Does anyone know of an add in to Windows to allow it to read IPTC data, or alternatively a way of bulk converting the IPTC fields to their Windows equivalents?
