I'm currently planning to scan a load of old (film days) images and where I can I plan to add metadata (EXIF) for stuff like location, who's in the image, where it was taken and such, in part this is for future generations, the equieivent of the hand written note on the back of a photograph.
BUT I'm wondering where On1 stores this data, I'm beginning to suspect that its all in the sidecar file rather than the image file itself. IF this is so its rather limiting as presumably this data would be lost if the image were opened in another application (Photoshop/Lightroom) OR the image file were separated from the sidecar file.
I may be wrong but I seem to remember that PS/LR didn't use sidecar files, that such data was saved to the image file itself.
Can anybody comment on this, offer opinion/suggestion???
