Editing exif not possible?

Post by cdysthe »

Hi,

Is it not possible to edit exif information stored in jpgs in XnView? I am currently using gexif which can manipulate exif. However, I was hoping that after I have started using XnView I could do everything in one program.

I do not want to do ipict since that means I would have to add information for all my pictures. Exif is already there. The only problem I have is that when my camera runs out of batteries exif date and time is forgotten so I have to edit that part for for some pictures. Another thing is that my web album software reads exif and generates pages based on it, so I need it to be correct.

Next release will allow to edit date/time from EXIF metadata.
