Googling 'embed text' and 'Tiff' found this list and some discussions here where such a topic comes up occasionally.
I am wondering if there is a utility or program which will do such a thing? Apparently not. It would be an extremely useful trick.
My client requires my cartoons in TIFF format. After print on dead trees publishing the cartoons remain on the publishers server as jpg's converted by the web master who sets up the paper's web site.
So what happens is the cartoons now on the web are unsearchable by content unless you know the saved name of the file. I would love the ability to embed keywords in the graphic file which would also survive the translation to jpg.
I think this is a typical use of IPTC, perhaps Photoshop's embedding standard for JPEG and/or TIFF can be followed (or use it as the interface to do so).
There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.
