Thanks for the tips.

You mention that wikipedia mentions the 'iTXt', 'tEXt' and 'zTXt' 
chunks. er, yes, but I haven't a clue what that all means. Do you?

Synaptic can't find 'convert' in  the repositories, and I can't find it 
on the net. Can you give me a link?

pngmeta is in one of the repositories and seems to do what it says. But 
that does not include being able to _write_ metadata.

It looks like the author of digiKam is working on just what I might need 

I've dropped a line to greg who maintains the png website seeing if he 
can help.
