Programs for editing EXIF Data

posted May 7th, 2012
As I shoot film I would like to be able to edit the EXIF data by amending the Make and Model, as it currently shows the Processing Machines name, and also to add in aperture and exposure settings. I can amend the date in Lightroom but it does not allow anything else to be edited.

Is there any software (preferably free) that can edit EXIF, or is it not possible?

Anyone? Someone?

Also feel free to hijack the thread if you so wish :P

Haven't tried it, but I found this on a quick search - it's freeware. :)

Also - what version of Windows do you have? My work computer is on 7 and by right-clicking on a photo and choosing Properties > Details, you can edit the EXIF at will.

@beautifulthing Yeah I tried that, but when you upload to Flickr etc. it still had the old values

@38mm Well, then, you've broken the Internet, and with that, I can't help you. Bloody hell and stuff.

@agima Cheers Brendan I tried that PhotoME and couldn't get it change Make and Model, but just found AnalogExif and it works a treat

Writing in your exif data seems a bit time consuming and stuff. You keeping notes then from each shot, f-stop and shutter - to write in? What about tippex pen in the bottom corner like the Victorians used to do?

@chewyteeth Instead of typing it in the comments of Flickr, 365 etc. I can do it once, and save time. Well that was my thinking anyway?

I use Opanda, Works well for both viewing and editing. I downloaded it for free.

Windows 7 will let you change the EXIF info by right clicking on the photo and then clicking on properties. Then go to the 'details' tab to edit the EXIF info. Good Luck!

@gareauk1 Thats cool and it works so easily, I would imagine this would be the easiest way :)

@gareauk1 @monika64 We already discussed that as an option, earlier in the thread. It doesn't work for him.

@hmgphotos Cheers Heidi will take a look at that one as well

@gareauk1 @monika64 I'm using Vista, for some reason when I do that it looks like it has changed it until I upload to Flickr, here etc. and it still shows the old data. Cheers anyway, but I have found a program that works now.
