Hindsight provides business management software, including:
The newest product, METAmachine, is a simplified browsing utility program that streamlines the important process of adding keywords, licenses and other essential metadata to images, either individually or in batches. METAmachine reads and writes XMP-formatted metadata in TIFF, JPEG, PSD and DNG images.
METAmachine can write a complete set of the IPTC standard metadata into images. It is compatible with all XMP-compliant DAM software and can become a simple step in the work flow for any combination of programs. Writing metadata is as simple as dragging images from the Desktop or from a compatible program such as Adobe Bridge, either one at a time or in batches, onto a target area where the metadata is added. Images themselves are not moved or opened and re-saved, so there is no destructive recompression involved.
METAmachine has Copyright Protection options built in that prevent overwriting any existing copyright information in images. METAmachine is the only metadata writing software in full compliance with the Meta Manifesto of the Stock Artists Alliance.
Built into the software is HindSight's highly praised, extremely fast, hierarchical keywording system and a license constructor. Both include usable sample data, which can be modified as necessary to fit your needs.
