Yes, I figured this out a little bit ago , also found something called 
exif2 but haven't gotten at it yet.  picasa the application is not 
available for linux, I learned that earlier.  I'm currently muddling 
through some of the exiftool command-line options and approaching euphoria.

There are a variety of tutorials that talk about the benefits of 
geocoding/geotagging and adding meta description information using 
panoramio or flick, but almost all leave you hanging; they don't 
actually say that the data is stored with the image in the 'head', 
leaving you imaging that it is stored somewhere on flickr in a database. 
Half half...

This is good... it is now making sense. Heck, knowing this now I could 
easily store captions, descriptions in the file, not in a database field.
