IPTC-IIM is a metadata format used in some types of image files. It was intended to be used in the news media industry for pictures transmitted in conjunction with news stories, with accompanying captions and other information.

IIM stands for Information Interchange Model, and IPTC for International Press Telecommunications Council, the organization which developed this standard. The format is sometimes referred to as IPTC-NAA IIM, because the Newspaper Association of America is also involved in developing these standards. The terms IPTC and IPTC metadata are sometimes used to refer to IPTC-IIM, though they have other meanings as well.

The format has been incorporated into the broader IPTC Photo Metadata standard, and is now essentially a legacy serialization format for that standard.

[edit] Format details

IPTC-IIM is structured as a sequence of data blocks, which the specification calls "DataSets". Each DataSet contains a 1-byte "record number" and a 1-byte "DataSet number", which together indicate the type of data stored in that DataSet.
