Pound Hill Software, a leading developer of metadata software tools, has updated its MetaGrove schema and dialog for PLUS License Data Format v1.2.0. This update corrects how three of the ImageID fields are stored in XMP.
MetaGrove Plug-ins for Adobe Creative Suite CS2 and CS3 products provide advanced XMP capability for the user.
The MetaGrove Developer application permits the non-programmer to build XMP schemas, vocabularies, and MetaGrove dialogs (menu panels).
PLUS License Data Format
Picture Licensing Universal System (PLUS) coalition is focused on image rights in the area of stock photography. It supports very detailed usage-based licensing of digital photographs.
Its objective is the recognition and presevation of the image creator’s and other contributor’s rights through the entire creation and distribution process. Pound Hill Software participated in the early stages of LDF’s definition.

The MetaGrove dialog for PLUS License Data Format is compliant with PLUS LDF v 1.2.0(r2), ratified by the PLUS Board on January 29, 2008.
Pound Hill Software customers that use the MetaGrove Schema and Dialog for PLUS metadata are encouraged to download the new dialog. The dialog has the Custom panel removed. This ensures interoperability with other PLUS tools.
