While not all the JPEG images have EXIF information, the ones produced by digital cameras, scanners usually contain this information. Some of the well known image editors also insert the EXIF data inside the JPEG images.
When we view JPEG images using image viewers such as IrfranView, XNView MP, or FastStone Image Viewer, we can view this EXIF metadata information easily. But extracting this EXIF information and saving it to a file is not always so easy. Fortunately, we can use a tool called EXIFSummary which can be used on JPEG image files.
EXIFSummary is a small Windows tool using which we can extract the EXIF information from JPEG image files. Using it is extremely easy. After launching the EXIFSummary tool, we can select the JPEG image files and add them to its list. We can add multiple JPEG image files or work with just a single JPEG image files.
After that you have to choose an output folder where the EXIF information is going to be saved. We can then proceed to selecting the output file type. We have three options – a separate EXIF text file for each image, a single EXIF text file with data from all of the images and a single EXIF PDF file with data from all of the images.
Clicking on the Execute button makes this tool process all the images in the list. Once it has extracted the data, we can go ahead and check the extracted information.
The text file includes original image date/time, camera settings, and GPS coordinates (if the image is GPS tagged), camera make, camera model, software used, exposure, ISO speed, bits per sample, image orientation, exposure bias, exposure bias, image width, image height etc. We can even print this information if the computer has access to a local printer.
