Parses JPEGs to get Exif format data
'exiftags' parses a JPEG file looking for Exif (Exchangeable Image File) data, formatting, and printing image properties. Digital cameras typically add Exif data to the image files they produce containing information about the camera and digitized image. exiftags includes support for some camera manufacturer-specific properties. An included companion utility, exifcom, displays and writes the UserComment Exif tag that some cameras include in the image metadata they create. This program is useful for recording caption or location information in the image file itself.
