PMT 1.4.2 Released!

The Picture Metadata Toolkit (PMT) provides a common Object Oriented API to metadata associated with digital imaging. PMT also allows metadata to be read / written in XML, and metadata definitions are expressed through XML Schema.

With this release, PMT now reads Exif 2.2.1 files correctly. The ability to remove tags without copying an image, which was mysteriously missing, has been added. Also, a new sample program to dump the tags from an IFD stored in the MakerNote field. Note that this program is dependent on several highly variable parameters, so your milage may vary.

Picture Metadata Toolkit (PMT) V 1.4 Released!

The Picture Metadata Toolkit (PMT) provides a common Object Oriented API to metadata associated with digital imaging. PMT also allows metadata to be read / written in XML, and metadata definitions are expressed through XML Schema.

Most applications simply use the default schema and translation table provided
with the distribution of PMT. If you are not reading in JPEG2000 files nor XML
metadata files, there should be no need for an XML parser. Thus, this release
does not require one. By using a "preparsed" default schema, the toolkit
initialization time improves by a factor of 30.

PMT V1.3.1 is Released!

The Picture Metadata Toolkit (PMT) provides a common Object Oriented API to metadata associated with digital imaging. PMT also allows metadata to be read / written in XML, and metadata definitions are expressed through XML Schema. Due to verwhelming demand for Microsoft Visual Studio 2003 .NET (VC 7.1) support, this maintenance release is geared specifically for that. Switching to the 2003 .NET compiler does improve performance slightly, at the cost of adding to the memory footprint.

PMT V1.3 Is Released!

The Picture Metadata Toolkit (PMT) provides a common Object Oriented API to metadata associated with digital imaging. PMT also allows metadata to be read / written in XML, and metadata definitions are expressed through XML Schema.
In this release, performance has been increased by about 10%, as memory usage has decreased by about 10%, mostly thanks to the new translation table design. PMT has also been successfully tested with both Xerces V2.2 and V2.3.
