Top Photo Metadata Editors
A metadata editor is computer software which allows users to
view and edit metadata tags interactively and save them in the graphics
file. So, metadata is information that is part of the image file and
contains information about the image itself and the creation of the
image. It can set textual information such as title,
description, exposure time, ISO value, focal length, and copyright.
Some modern digital cameras and camera phones are GPS enabled and they
can save the location co-ordinates (latitude and longitude) with the
photographs. Metadata editors can also set geolocation information by
browsing a map or setting coordinates directly, which is particularly
useful for cameras without GPS. There are many reasons
why users might wish to modify metadata of photographs.
This "metadata" is embedded into photographs using the
standard Exif format that can easily be read by image editing
programs as well as online photo sharing websites like Flickr and
Picasa Web Albums, fast and easy photo sharing from Google.
To provide an insight into the quality of software that is
available, we have compiled a list of the finest metadata editors
available for Linux. We have whittled the available range down to the
top four superior tools for metadata management.
Now, let's explore the 4 photo metadata editors at hand. For
each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description
with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot, together with
links to relevant resources and reviews.
