Exif Editor is an application that allows you to edit metadata in directly your photos.

The tool is useful when you don't want to expose camera to your customers. When your RAW processor doesn't open your file because it doesn't recognise valid camera/lens combination.

In some applications, it's needed to reload metadata as they are heavily cached, for example Adobe Bridge, Lightroom or Aperture.
• Adobe Lightroom - select image, right click and in the popup menu select Metadata->Read Metadata from Files

Exif Editor now support for the following file formats
• Canon CR2
• Nikon NEF
• Olympus ORF
• Adobe DNG
• Leaf MOS
• Fuji RAF
• Panasonic RW2
• Pentax PEF
• Phase One IIQ

Version 1.1.0
Review by Hos Family

Exactly what I was looking for - This is a simple program, but is what you need if you have a bunch of old slides that have been scanned and have no EXIF data and a creation date of today. It has a feature that allows you to set presets, so I went in and set up one for all the photos that were taken by my father. Then I just applied that preset and batch edited the dates to put the pictures into the approximate time frame of when they were taken. Sometimes you know the exact date because the pictures are of Thanksgiving or Christmas, other times you just need to use the “processed date” indicated by the film lab on the slides. It’s not exact, but it is better than the pictures being sorted with pictures taken around the time the slides were scanned… which will put them about 30 years off the correct date :). Anyway, not having to do this one by one is worth the price of this app. Actually, I don’t think I will need to use this app ever again, but it was very worth the price.

Version 1.0.8
Review by Camiwammi

Does not display all EXIF tags - Purchased this application looking for an easier way to read EXIF file data than the comprehensive exiftool by Phil Harvey. FWIW, where this data includes fields, it's great. Problem is, it doesn't include all the EXIF data I need to see. For example, one common way to evaluate used cameras is to see how often they've been fired by checking the shutter actuation number (ShutterCount on a Nikon) on a recent image. This tool doesn't offer that. I'm not seeing other fields here, either. So…if all you're looking for is geotagging, artist name, that sort of thing, this is probably useful. If you really want to see what's in the entire EXIF file, look elsewhere.

Version 1.1.12
Review by AuntFrahn

Great, so far! - I was looking for an application to add keywords to many, many files. I have over 138,000 images that I should have done a better job categorizing. In some cases, there should be multiple categories. I tested with one folder of 65 images first adding keywords “Test Exif Editor”. Batch processing was smooth and accurate. Then, selected the same 65 again and added a new keyword to the existing one. It shows the existing greyed out and allowed me to add another. Again, processed exactly what I wanted. Then, selecting one photo, I modified the keyword field again while leaving the other two in tact. Flawless. For a final test, I added “removed other two” and removed the other two keyword phrases. Thanks! Exactly what I was looking for!

Version 1.1.12
Review by mobycat

Works, but no support - When it works, it works great. Especially when you want to change (or add) something like GPS data. Or, in my case, when you want to add keywords that are permanent, instead of using Lightroom, where if you lose your catalog, you lose your keywords. My only quibble…when it doesn’t work… don’t expect ANY support. Tried to get an answer to a simple question and never got so much as a confirmation email that he received my support request. Not. A. Single. Word. For the price, support should be there. But it’s not. I see a couple review that say support was great. Maybe it was in 2013. In 2017… notsomuch.
