Annotation mapping

Expression Studio 2.0

Microsoft Expression Media supports a set of pre-defined fields for annotating your media files. This set (also known as the IPTC/XMP Core) enables you to define metadata for your media files, such as Creator, Date Created, Location, and Copyright.

These annotation standards have been defined by the International Press and Telecommunications Council (IPTC) and the Newspaper Association of America (NAA). Adobe uses this standard, in part to define the XMP metadata standard.

Expression Media also supports metadata defined by Apple QuickTime. To simplify annotating media, and prevent multiple sets of annotations for each standard, Expression Media has mapped the QuickTime annotation fields to the IPTC fields.

The following table lists the field names used by Expression Media, and also their corresponding names in the IPTC and QuickTime standards, and in Photoshop. Because the names of each annotation are not integrated into the data, other programs might refer to an annotation by a different name.

In Expression Media, you can choose which field names to display in the Info and Organize panels. In the General Preferences dialog box, choose from either the official IPTC Core names, those names used in Expression Media or those used in Photoshop.

For additional information about IPTC/XMP metadata, see the official IPTC website.

Below are the official definitions for IPTC Core annotation fields. For additional information about the IPTC metadata standard, see the IPTC website.

  • Headline   A publishable entry providing a synopsis of the contents of the item. Headline is not the same as Title.

  • Title   A shorthand reference for the item. While a technical identifier goes to an identifier element, Title holds a short verbal and human readable name. Title is not the same as Headline.

  • Intellectual Genre   Describes the nature, intellectual, or journalistic characteristic of an item, not specifically its content.

  • Date Created   Designates the date and optionally the time the intellectual content of the item was created instead of the date of the creation of the physical representation. If no time is given, the default value should be 00:00:00.

  • Creator   Contains preferably the name of the person who created the content of this item, a photographer for photographs, a graphic artist for graphics, or a writer for textual news. If it is not appropriate to add the name of a person, the name of a company or organization could be applied instead.

  • Provider   Identifies the provider of the item, who is not necessarily the owner/creator.

  • Source   Identifies the original owner of the copyright for the intellectual content of the item. This could be an agency, a member of an agency, or an individual. Source could be different from Creator and from the entities in the Copyright.

  • Copyright Notice   Contains any necessary copyright notice for claiming the intellectual property for this item and should identify the current owner of the copyright for the item. Other entities, such as the creator of the item may be added. Notes on usage rights should be provided in "Rights Usage Terms."

  • Job Identifier   Number or identifier intended to improve workflow handling. This identifier should be added by the creator or provider for transmission and routing purposes only, and should have no significance for archiving.

  • Rights Usage Terms   Free text instructions on how this item can be used legally.

  • Location   Name of a location on which the content is focusing–either the location shown in visual media or referenced by text or audio media. This location name could be either the name of a sub-location of a city or the name of a well-known location or (natural) monument outside a city. In the sense of a sub-location to a city, this element is at the fourth level of a top-down geographical hierarchy.

  • City   Name of the city on which the content is focusing on–either the place shown in visual media or referenced by text or audio media. This element is at the third level of a top-down geographical hierarchy.

  • Province/State   Name of the subregion of a country–either called province or state–on which is the content focusing–either the subregion shown in visual media or referenced by text or audio media. This element is at the second level of a top-down geographical hierarchy.

  • Country   Full name of the country on which the content is focusing–either the country shown in visual media or referenced in text or audio media. This element is at the top/first level of a top-down geographical hierarchy. The full name should be expressed as a verbal name and not as a code. A code should go to the element "Country Code."

  • Country Code   Code of the country on which the content is focused–either the country shown in visual media or referenced in text or audio media. This element is at the top/first level of a top-down geographical hierarchy. The code should be taken from ISO 3166 two or three letter code. The full name of a country should go to the "Country" element.

  • Instructions   Any of a number of instructions from the provider or creator to the receiver of the news object that might include any of the following: embargoes (NewsMagazines OUT) and other restrictions not covered by the "Rights Usage Terms" field; information about the original means of capture (scanning notes, colorspace information) or other specific text information that the user might need for accurate reproduction; additional permissions or credits required when publishing.

  • Description writer   Identifier or the name of the person involved in writing, editing, or correcting the description of the item.

  • Keywords   Keywords to express the subject of the content. Keywords may be free text and do not have to be taken from a controlled vocabulary. Values from the controlled vocabulary IPTC Subject Codes must go to the "Subject Code" element.

  • Scenes   Describes the scene of a photo content. Specifies one or more terms from the IPTC "Scene-NewsCodes." Each Scene is represented as a string of 6 digits in an unordered list.

  • Subject Codes   Specifies one or more Subjects from the IPTC "Subject-News Codes" taxonomy to categorize the content. Each Subject is represented as a string of 8 digits in an unordered list.

  • Description   A textual description, including captions, of the item's content, especially used where the object is not text.
