This topic explains how to configure Color Factory to prioritize IPTC tags over XMP ones.
Note: XMP has been the established industry standard for reading and writing embedded metadata for over two decades and we will continue our efforts to remain the industry leader in XMP capabilities adoption. As most applications and devices now exclusively use XMP as the format for reading and writing embedded metadata, we see that the additional support for reading IPTC block metadata is causing unnecessary compatibility issues. Moving forward, FotoWare will not be parsing IPTC metadata from assets if XMP metadata is present in the asset.
Support for parsing EXIF information will not be affected by this change.
FotoWare is still a member of the IPTC Committee and remains involved in the adoption of IPTC standards in our tools.
