How XMP is used in Annotate

Our Annotate software uses the XMP (eXtensible Meta Platform) notation that was developed by Adobe back in 2001 to store the coordinate-bound annotations (comments) and virtual crop information in a non-destructible way in an image.

XMP metadata can be embedded into almost any file format that is being used today. Annotate V1.10 stores the XMP information into the JPG file's header and future releases will support NEF and other raw formats as well, storing the meta data with the same XMP data structure.

You may already be using XMP to store metadata in your image withouth even knowing it -- if you are adding keywords to your photographs, these are written using the IPTC Core schema in XMP format.

XMP allows anybody to extend it by declaring so called "schemas" describing the structure of the stored data. There is a range of photo editing software that is already using XMP to store metadata, and that is aware of some of the existing schemas (the currently supported schemas include Dublin Core & Extension, IPTC Core and PLUS)

Some catalogs and editing software are storing metadata using sidecar .xmp files that are stored next to your jpeg/raw images. These sidecar files contain the metadata describing the image, but they can get lost if you move the image, send it to someone via email or upload the image to a web gallery.

When developing Annotate, we have extended the XMP schema to be able store metadata about the image bound to coordinates. This way, the annotations you make using Annotate are stored as XMP image metadata in the same way as the keywords or tags you make in your favorite image workflow software.

The main difference between keywords and annotations is that annotations are bound to coordinates, while tags describe an image as a whole. You can think about annotations as keywords bound to coordinates.

Annotate stores XMP metadata describing the annotations directly in the image (as opposed to sidecar .xmp files). When you e.g. share an image with your friend by sending it to him via email, the meta data is kept inside the file. It is possible to send an email directly from Annotate. To learn how, see our wiki on how to send images via email.

The approach of storing your comments in the image in XMP format has many advantages. The annotations are non destructive: Your original image is unchanged. Furthermore, as opposed to drawings made in Photoshop, annotations are included in your images as text. And text can be processed by your computer. For example, a computer can quickly search for specific annotations in large volumes of your image catalogue.

An example: Someone is annotating a photograph with 10 people in it. Using keywords you would only enumerate the people, while annotations will identify the persons accurately. When you are searching based on keywords, you will find the photograph, but you may not know who is who. When searching in annotations, you will find the image and immediately know who is who in the photograph.

A search feature will come in a future version of Annotate, but you can start annotating your image collection right now.

Optical Quality Re-Invented - The Swarovski Optik EL42

Ten years ago, Swarovski redefined elegance and ease of use in hand held optics with the world's first wrap-around grip binoculars. Today, the EL42 Optik range is setting new standards yet again, with the the revolutionary SWAROVISION technology.

Equipped with high-end features such as field-flattening lenses to minimize distortion, flouride elements to enhance color and reduce fringing and large eye relief to allow 100% vision even with spectacle users, SWAROVISION brings the hand-held binocular to an entirely new level of standards.

The ergonomics of the Swarovski Optik EL42 series has also been enhanced. Two turns of the focusing wheel brings you from Infinity to the close-up distance of five feet (1.5m) and the legendary wrap-around grip allows ease of handling, even with thick winter gloves. At a feather-light 28 ounces (795 gr), the EL42 series does not compromise weight for it's amazing optical performance.

Click here to learn more about the Swarovski Optik EL42 and other outstanding optical products. The Optik EL42 will be available January 2010.

Share image comments - Annotate photographs

With Nikonians Annotate software (free download), you can easily share comments on images without destroying the original. The new version 1.10 is free and makes it possible to annotate and share multiple images easily. We have now an online help on Annotate in our wiki.

You ask why you need to store comments in the image header and not to draw them directly on the images?

Your comments are stored in the image as text. Unlike hand drawn comments on the image, text can be processed and indexed by your computer, which will allow you to quickly search within annotations to e.g. find people in your photo catalog. Advanced search functionality is coming in future versions of Annotate!, but you can start tagging people in your photographs right now!

Creating comments with Annotate! is fast. Try Annotate! yourself and see how fast it is to comment on specific parts of the image.

Annotate! is lightweight. You do not need to use complex digital photo editing software to put simple comments in your images. You will find out that loading an image in Annotate is as easy as dragging the image from a web page opened in your web browser.

Annotate! can also run in your system tray, waiting to be used anytime you need it to e.g. take a screenshot or crop images.

Download annotate and start annotate today :-)

Shoot yourself -- win a Nikon and $100K

Your_Day_80.jpgWell, you don't really have to shoot yourself literally. All you need to do is submit a video of 140 seconds or less with the theme "Your Day" and you can win.

Your_Day_300.jpgNikonians in the USA 50 states and the District of Columbia age 18 or above are invited to enter Nikon's "A Day through your Lens" video contest with a deadline of December 15th at midnight.

Nikon's contest announcement explains the theme:
So what's it like to be you? Capture the essence of your day in a video of 140 seconds or less. It can be funny, touching or profound. It can be about everything you did, everything you didn't do, the day's biggest dilemma or its most telling detail.

The contest promotes Nikon's HD-video capable D5000 camera, but the neat part is you can shoot your entry with any video-capturing device that can produce videos in one of the following formats: flv, avi, mpg, mpeg, mpe, dat, vob, wmv, asf, mp4, mov, 3gp, 3gp2, 3gpp, dv, qt, rm, or rmvb.

The grand prize is $100,000 and a Nikon D5000 D-SLR kit. This contest has an audience viewed popularity feature, which means if your video gets a pile of audience reaction you could win $25,000 and a Nikon D5000 D-SLR kit.

You can find the rules and submission guidelines here, and follow the contest at the Nikon Festival site.

As a heads up -- If you have thoughts of sweetening your video submission with a favorite track from your favorite iPod collection, you could be disqualifying yourself immediately:
"Note: Please do not use music, brand images or talent that you do not have permission to use in your video. If you're going to put music on your video it's best to use music that is in the public domain or music that you have created."

Carl Zeiss Announces Semi-Pro Lens Line for Nikon

Carl Zeiss has announced a line of lenses for "the semi-professional" market. Labelled ZF.2, this family of manual-focus lenses will mount and meter with Nikon F-Mount 35mm camera bodies.

While no samples were available at press time, the optics line-up covers popular focal ranges from 18mm to 100mm. The CPU now reports EXIF information to the mounted body such as exposure based on selected aperture; which eases the photographer's workload in managing settings. Overall, the price and maximum aperture reflects the targeted enthusiast market. Zeiss quotes an MSRP of approximately USD800 to USD2100 depending upon the model making the threshold somewhat more accessible to the prosumer.

Think Tank Photo boosts Urban Disguise capacity

Think Tank Photo has just released a major addition to their Urban Disguise line. The Urban Disguise® 70 Pro is a huge shoulder bag that can carry up to a 70-200 f2.8 lens attached to any camera body.

UD-70-Pro_300.jpgThink Tank's Press Release describes the new bag: For the photographer carrying two regular or pro size DSLRs with lenses attached to each camera body – or even a 70-200 f2.8 lens attached to any camera body – Think Tank Photo announces the release of the cavernous Urban Disguise ® 70 Pro. This is a briefcase style gear bag for traveling in style and protecting camera equipment without attracting attention as an obvious camera bag. The interior accommodates a host of camera configurations that enable photographers to keep all their gear secure in one bag.

It features:
● Secret pocket -- On the inside of the front pocket is a “secret” zipped pocket. It is designed to hold airline tickets, passports, and other irreplaceable items.
● Attaches to Rolling Bags -- The Urban Disguise 70 features a slot that allows it to be secured to a roller. A tab on the bottom prevents it from accidentally unzipping.
● Stretch pockets -- The pockets on either side of the bag stretch to hold items like cell phones, strobes, and even smaller water bottles.
● Business card slot -- The back of the bag has a slot big enough to hold many business cards so you can give them away to clients and friends.
● Rear zippered pocket – Ready access to magazines, notebooks, plane tickets, and other essential items.
● Shoulder Harness -- With Think Tank’s Shoulder Harness (sold separately) the shoulder bag converts into a backpack.

UD-70-Pro_250.jpg

“This design concept is the culmination of years of observation of photojournalists and other photographers who have jury-rigged their bags to decrease their public exposure,” said Think Tank Photo founder and lead designer Doug Murdoch. “Whether it is a professional who wishes to maintain a subtle presence in potentially dangerous situations or a serious amateur who wishes to lessen the risk of having their gear ripped off, the Urban Disguise’s design allows the right gear to be carried with less fear.”

Nikonians Special Reminder
Don't forget that if you use our special order form for Nikonian members Think Tank Photo will send you a free gift with your order.
