 Thanks for this query Piers, as it I've been vaguely wondering about this
for years but didn't look into it. A lot of my photos are now in iPhoto '09
Just now I've read https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5588239 (with its
touches of tragedy). The final pointer there is to  Media Pro 1
http://www.phaseone.com/en/Imaging-Software/Media-Pro.aspx  If you try the
Demo, would you let us know if it looks like Media Pro 1 will deliver?

 Hi all,
 I'm using iPhoto and trying to export images as .TIFFs for archiving in
PARADISEC. Ideally, I would like to the image metadata to be embedded in
the exported .TIFF. If and when an image floats free of its context in the
archive, it's nice to know that there is enough metadata to allow the image
to be accurately interpreted.

Using iPhoto's own 'Export...' function and checking all the right options,
the best result I can get is a .TIFF that retains title name and GPS data
but no 'caption/description', or 'date and time'.

As far as I'm aware there are two apps that purport to be able to allow you
to embed iPhoto metadata into an exported .TIFF. These are iPhoto to Disk
and Phoshare. Neither of them works for me (it looks like they haven't been
supported for a while).

Any leads?
