exiv2

Exiv2 is a C++ library and a command line utility to manage image metadata. It provides fast and easy read and write access to the Exif, IPTC and XMP metadata of images in various formats

Exiv2 command line utility to:

  • print Exif, IPTC and XMP image metadata in different formats:
    • Exif summary info, interpreted values, or the plain data for each tag
  • set, add and delete Exif, IPTC and XMP image metadata from command line modify commands or command scripts
  • adjust the Exif timestamp (that’s how it all started…)
  • rename Exif image files according to the Exif timestamp
  • extract, insert and delete Exif, IPTC and XMP metadata and JPEG comments
  • extract previews from RAW images and thumbnails from the Exif metadata
  • insert and delete the thumbnail image embedded in the Exif metadata
  • print, set and delete the JPEG comment of JPEG images
  • fix the Exif ISO setting of picture taken with Canon and Nikon cameras

exiv2

Image metadata manipulation tool

root@kali:~# exiv2 -h
Usage: exiv2 [ options ] [ action ] file ...

Manipulate the Exif metadata of images.

Actions:
  ad | adjust   Adjust Exif timestamps by the given time. This action
                requires at least one of the -a, -Y, -O or -D options.
  pr | print    Print image metadata.
  rm | delete   Delete image metadata from the files.
  in | insert   Insert metadata from corresponding *.exv files.
                Use option -S to change the suffix of the input files.
  ex | extract  Extract metadata to *.exv, *.xmp and thumbnail image files.
  mv | rename   Rename files and/or set file timestamps according to the
                Exif create timestamp. The filename format can be set with
                -r format, timestamp options are controlled with -t and -T.
  mo | modify   Apply commands to modify (add, set, delete) the Exif and
                IPTC metadata of image files or set the JPEG comment.
                Requires option -c, -m or -M.
  fi | fixiso   Copy ISO setting from the Nikon Makernote to the regular
                Exif tag.
  fc | fixcom   Convert the UNICODE Exif user comment to UCS-2. Its current
                character encoding can be specified with the -n option.

Options:
   -h      Display this help and exit.
   -V      Show the program version and exit.
   -v      Be verbose during the program run.
   -q      Silence warnings and error messages during the program run (quiet).

   -k      Preserve file timestamps (keep).
   -t      Also set the file timestamp in 'rename' action (overrides -k).

   -f      Do not prompt before overwriting existing files (force).
   -F      Do not prompt before renaming files (Force).

           is only used with the 'adjust' action.
   -Y yrs  Year adjustment with the 'adjust' action.
   -O mon  Month adjustment with the 'adjust' action.
   -D day  Day adjustment with the 'adjust' action.
   -p mode Print mode for the 'print' action. Possible modes are:
             s : print a summary of the Exif metadata (the default)
             a : print Exif, IPTC and XMP metadata (shortcut for -Pkyct)
             e : print Exif metadata (shortcut for -PEkycv)
             t : interpreted (translated) Exif data (-PEkyct)
             v : plain Exif data values (-PExgnycv)
             h : hexdump of the Exif data (-PExgnycsh)
             i : IPTC data values (-PIkyct)
             x : XMP properties (-PXkyct)
             c : JPEG comment
             p : list available previews
             C : print ICC profile embedded in image
             R : recursive print structure of image
             S : print structure of image
             X : extract XMP from image
   -P flgs Print flags for fine control of tag lists ('print' action):

           Only JPEG thumbnails can be inserted, they need to be named
           <file>-thumb.jpg
   -e tgt  Extract target(s) for the 'extract' action. Possible targets
           are the same as those for the -d option, plus a target to extract

   -m file Command file for the modify action. The format for commands is
           set|add|del <key> [[<type>] <value>].
   -M cmd  Command line for the modify action. The format for the
           commands is the same as that of the lines of a command file.
   -l dir  Location (directory) for files to be inserted from or extracted to.
   -S .suf Use suffix .suf for source files for insert command.


libexiv2-27

Exiv2 is a C++ library and a command line utility to manage image metadata. It provides fast and easy read and write access to the Exif, IPTC and XMP metadata of images in various formats

Exiv2 library provides:

  • fast read and write access to the Exif, IPTC, and XMP metadata of an image
  • an easy to use and extensively documented API
  • conversions of Exif and IPTC metadata to XMP and vice versa
  • a smart IPTC implementation that does not affect data that programs like Photoshop store in the same image segment
  • Exif Makernote support:
    • Makernote tags can be read and written just like any other metadata
    • a sophisticated write algorithm avoids corrupting the Makernote
  • a simple interface to extract previews embedded in RAW images and Exif thumbnails
  • set and delete methods for Exif thumbnails
