Exif Tags….April 23, 2008
It’s been a while since I last blogged, because I’ve been quite busy lately and haven’t found an interesting topic to blog about.
I’ve asked my good friend, Bernd, to write a small application for me that would let me edit the EXIF data of my photos. He wrote me this basic tool that pretty much just adds a comment to the EXIF data of my photos.
You start the application, then a little pop-up dialog appears and asks you to type in the text for your comment field. After choosing the right text you click OK, and then you can select the photos you want to provide with this comment. It’s very easy, and very similar to ID3-tagging with mp3s.
The tool is written in Python, which means it’s platform independent and you can run it everywhere where Python is installed. It depends on the following packages zenity and exiv2, so make sure you have these installed before running the application.
Download the source code from here and then rename it from ‚ec.sh.txt‘ to ‚ec.sh‘. You can now run exif comment from your console by typing sh ec.sh or simply make a shortcut on your desktop to ‚./ec.sh‘. As said before this will run anywhere and you don’t need to install it, just run it as it is.
If you know a similar tool, that is even more powerful, then please let me know. Also if you have any ideas on how it could be improved let me know and I’ll pass it onto Bernd.
Enjoy your Exif Comment!
