Can someone please recommend software that enables editing for exposure mode exif data? I have tried with Picasa, but it doesn't support editing of this specific property. Thanks.

I'm just wondering why would you would want to edit that? It indicates what exposure mode the camera was using when taking the picture, so normally it doesn't make any sense to change that. – Guffa Sep 13 '10 at 21:45
@Guffa (and grm): I was asking myself the same question! – stevenvh Sep 15 '10 at 11:54

Jhead is a capable tool for modifying and examining exif data. See this link

Probably the most likely option is ExifTool as it seems to be the Swiss Army Knife of editors, though not the easiest for people to use.

Thanks. Only the commercial version had this option though. – grm Sep 26 '10 at 18:05
@grm are you kidding? exiftool is free. – muratgu Jul 14 '13 at 18:43
this should have been the accepted answer. – muratgu Jul 14 '13 at 18:44
