I am unable to tell if your Photo Basic/Classic 4 incorporates a database to store data about photos? If so, what format is the database in case I want to extract the data for my own purposes?

StudioLine does use standard Microsoft database technology to maintain metadata and other information about the images it manages. However, the database schema is frequently changed, because it is highly optimized for speed and thus neither intended nor conducive for ad-hoc or casual information retrieval.

However, StudioLine does offer exporting sidecar (XMP formatted) files for any selection/batch of images. This self-documenting XML-based format would be a much more suitable input into any kind of interfacing you are thinking about.
