Exif Pilot : Read, Create and Edit Metadata in Image Files

Exif Pilot is a freeware for reading, creating and editing metadata embedded in the various image files. It supports many different types of metadata formats such as EXIF, XMP, IPTC and EXIF GPS. It works in an explorer style interface which makes it very easy to browse the images and edit their metadata.

After launching Exif Pilot, we can select one of the folders containing all of your image files from the tree-view style interface. It will analyze those image files and if they contain any metadata, then it will display the information in the list. In the list we can see some basic information fetched from the metadata such as flash, focal length, exposure time, lens aperture and so on. Most of this information makes sense for DSLR and digital point-and-shoot cameras.

In the properties for any selected image file, we can see file information or the EXIF meta information. In the former case, it shows the file path, file name, location, size, date and resolution. In the EXIF data, we see the full set of the available data such as camera make, camera model, resolution, resolution unit, processing software, exposure time, focal length, ISO settings, EXIF version used, white balance, digital zoom ratio, aperture, exposure mode compression, and more.

For editing this metadata and adding new tags, we can click on the Edit EXIF/IPTC/XMP button. This will display a new tabbed interface where we can manually add the new metadata information. We just have to fill up various text boxes and that information is saved in the image file.

Exif Pilot supports a large number of image file formats including JPEG, TIFF, PNG, DNG, NEF, PEF, CR2, CRW, JP2, ORF, SRW, ARW and PSD. In addition, it is able to read large sized RAW, MRW, RW2, EPS and RAF file formats. In the 32-bit version of the program we can work with smaller image files. If we have to work with image files that are larger than 200 MB in filesize, then we have to use the 64-bit version of the program.
