another filename in Photoshop 6; not sure what other software will or will
not preserve it.

and versitle Canon RAW file converter. But it also has several other
functions including generating websites from your images. IPTC data can be
included in those presentations. BB is at

Information about the IPTC standard for data stored in images files can be
obtained from the IPTC's web site:
