Super compatible with other tools

Starsky uses IPTC and XMP metadata to read and write. That are two standards that every photo organizer should use So when you remove the database a single rescan will restore the metadata since it is stored inside the images.

When you use other tools to edit XMP or IPTC metadata, Starsky will able to read the changes and display them in the application.
