If you already know how to program in PHP, then I know that there is an IPTC module for PHP available somewhere.  Google will likely help you find it.

For my web (http://www.photo.si) I use PHP Metadata Toolkit (http://www.ozhiker.com/electronics/pjmt). It enables you to get IPTC from jpeg and after that you can do whatever you want with it including filling sql database so as I do. It wouldn't hurt if it would have some more documentation, but once you get basic idea you can customize it any way you want.

Heres how I did it. Very rough grab of the code but should give you an idea.


// Grab all that crazy IPTC stuff from each image

$size    = GetImageSize ("/www/directory/$file/$image",&$info);
            $iptc    = iptcparse ($info["APP13"]);
            if (isset($info["APP13"])) {

//$iptc = iptcparse($info["APP13"]){
if (is_array($iptc)) {$caption = $iptc["2#120"][0]; }}
               
// Caption Display
      print ('<br>');
      print ('<span class=img_caption>');
      print ($caption);
      print ('<br>');
      print ('<b>Click Photo for Hi Res </b>');
      print ('</span>');
            }
            else
                echo $image;
                           
            print('</td>');
        }
