From IMatch to Photo Supreme
Make the Move
IMatch stores most of its data in the metadata and upon importing the files to Photo Supreme, most of such information will return in Photo Supreme. What IMatch does not write to the metadata is the IMatch Category Assignments. This page explains how to export Categories in IMatch and how to import those as Catalog Labels in Photo Supreme.
