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

• Canon CR2
• Nikon NEF
• Olympus ORF

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.

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!
