Project Description

Exiv2 is a C++ library and a command line utility for managing image metadata. It provides fast and easy read and write access to the Exif, IPTC, and XMP metadata of images in many formats. The Exiv2 command line utility prints Exif, IPTC, and XMP metadata including Makernote tags in various formats, adjusts Exif timestamps, renames images according to the Exif timestamp, extracts and inserts Exif, IPTC, and XMP metadata and JPEG comments, or deletes the thumbnail or a specific type of metadata from an image.

0.21

This release adds read and write support for Samsung SRW images and Samsung makernotes. The exiv2 library now accepts a custom error handler and has a setting to control which messages are generated. The exiv2 command line tool has a new "quiet" option which uses the new functionality to suppress all library warnings. Important API changes will allow many future image format and makernote enhancements to be done in a binary compatible fashion and the new exiv2.hpp umbrella header file further shields applications from library changes.

0.19

This release has a dramatically reduced memory footprint when writing to large TIFF and TIFF-based images, as the images are no longer completely loaded into memory. In addition, it improves the performance of read operations for such files by about a factor of six on Windows. It also provides extended Nikon makernote support. Exiv2 is now able to read and write many additional Nikon makernote tags, including encrypted tags.
