If I don't work for a news service, should I be filling out the IPTC info on my files? If I should be filling it out, where can I find a complete newbies guide for it? I don't even know what it stands for!

Thanks!

Thanks, but that site doesn't tell me if I should be using it and if it does, I don't know where to look because it still looks like a site for people who already know what they're doing.

that unless you are in the "news" business, and if you are or want to be part of setting reporting standards- this is the group for you.

otherwise--- no.

I don't work for a news service either, but I always fill out the IPTC data because I use iMatch software for cataloging my images. I fill out the IPTC stuff the way I want (not necessarily following news services standards) and then I can search by my own categories. I've now got over 30,000 images and I can (generally) find any particular one in less than a minute.
