    I am looking for a photo management system that allows me to tag photos
    with different keywords. I should be able to define my own tags rather
    then use some standard tags. The tagged pictures MUST include that tag
    information in the image file itself as metadata. In addition the tags
    should be stored as plain text rather then some IDs representing
    different tags. Least but not last I would prefer some open source
    program.

    As a final note I am using this on a Window system and if there should
    be some semi standard for embedding metadata I would prefer a program
    complying with this standard.

    Thanks

    What you are looking for is probably still in development. F-Spot is out
    for linux but in very early version. It is written with .net framework
    so getting it to run on windows might be possible but i have not heard
    of any porting being done yet.
