    Hi All,

    Can anyone confirm or not if assigning keywords in iPhoto or Aperture 3, the keyword is actually written into the EXIF metadata of the file (JPEG) or whether it's just a reference within the application.

    I'm just starting out my organising, and want to know which one if any does write to the image itself, if neither does, any recommendations on a good photo management app that does write to the images metadata.

    I'd rather it write to the file, that way I'm not tied to the same application for life.

    Thanks for your help.

    I cannot speak for iPhoto, but if memory serves, Apertures saves it directly to the EXIF
