Photini – digital photograph metadata editing application

Photini is an easy to use digital photograph metadata (EXIF, IPTC, XMP) editing application.

This application enables users to quickly add information to photos. It can set textual information such as title, description, and copyright as well as geolocation information by browsing a map or setting coordinates directly.

The Photini GUI has two main areas. The upper part has a set of tabs to select different functions. The lower part is an image selector that is common to all the tabs.

Features include:

  • Easy to use graphical interface.
  • Set photo title, description, keywords, copyright and creator fields.
  • Can set metadata for multiple images simultaneously.
  • Search map to find places of interest.
  • Choice of map providers – instantly switch to compare details.
  • Drag and drop images onto map to set GPS location.
  • Edit coordinates if required, or clear to unset GPS data.
  • Reads EXIF, IPTC or XMP metadata, writes all three to maximise compatibility with other software.
  • Tabs to adjust time & date and to upload to Flickr.
