The purpose of this project is to come up with an xml schema and file format for storing image files and their associated metadata into a single file. This solution is intended to addresses the problems of having to upload multiple images files one at the time to a website and having to specify the metadata regarding the images either at the same time or later. There will be one file which contains multiple image files and an xml file that describes the content of that file. Currently, my plan is to use the Zip file format as the base foundation for the PixSee file format. The file format will support a loosely coupled image files as well as a collection of image files grouped into an album.
