Good to see that you are encouraging Adobe Framemaker and Acrobat users about the File Info Feature. You may not be aware, but the File Info feature originated with Photoshop and is available throughout the Adobe Creative Suite products as well (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.).

File Info is actually a gathering point for a number of different types of metadata from a number of standards bodies. The bulk of these are from the International Press Telecommunications Council or IPTC and have designated functions.

For instance, you might not know that the Title field is intended to contain a shorthand reference for the image or "photograph" - primarily for identification. Most photographers use this as a place to store the filename of their original scan or digital camera file. For news organizations it might be the name of a story it accompanies. For publications it might a place to put the name of the file, or maybe even the ISBN number.

The intended use for each of the fields can be found within the "User's guide to the IPTC Core custom panels" on the IPTC side (PDF)

The field definitions in alphabetical order can be viewed on the PhotoMetadata site as well.

Hope these resources help your viewers.
