HOWEVER, you probably already add metadata to your photos (using a program like iTag), right?
Rather than RE-type into Composer, the attached project TagUpdater will 'post-parse' your
Metadata.xml(after you've finished laying out your photos in DeepZoom Componser) and extract your Title, Description, Keywords (Tags) and Rating, which it will then save back to the XML.
Simply type this:
And it does this:
Then deep zoom away (use this post as a guide).
Note that TagUpdater currently extracts more metadata fields than Silverlight DeepZoom Tag Cloud example displays, but it's trivial to add more (such as the Title and Rating). Further, TagUpdater could be tweaked to extract camera data, GPS location and any other information to be saved in
Metadata.xmlfor use in Silverlight.

Note: I borrowed the jpeg parser from Searcharoo, parts of which were originally written by Asim Goheer and Omar Shahine. It could be updated to use WIC.
