Who's Using It?

Only a few news agencies still use IIM to exchange text news.

But its stronghold in usage still is photography: since it has been adopted for adding metadata about images to Adobe Photoshop more than 10 years ago and as this technology has been implemented by many software vendors currently millions of photos embed IIM fields and several dozens of software programs support IIM.

Find more about the support of photo software for IIM in the Software List of the Photo Metadata section.
