Default organising images

I've been toying with ACDSee as a means of organising images and I do quite like many of its features.

As I scan old photos and the collection increases, I'm just starting to appreciate the scale of the time and effort involved in the cataloguing and tagging process. It's not that I mind doing it, but I'm just concerned that the resulting database can be made future-proof such that it could be exported to other applications as the need arises.

I suppose I'm assuming that there isn't a recognised format that could encompass such data - keywords, comments and various tags? If not, then it seems to be a bit of shortcoming as I can't be the only one facing such a dilemma. Pity that there isn't an image format that could include such data and then the information could be embedded in the image file...

...or maybe there is?

Any sensible solutions, anyone?
