I've published a plugin recently which does what you are looking for: http://www.lightroomfocuspointsplugin.com It currently works in Lightroom 5, currently for all Canon + Nikon DSLR, additional cameras will be added in the future. Works on Mac and Windows. Hope it helps.

Just another command line EXIF tool that can do change the last modified date of files to match the time of taking the picture, based on the EXIF metada in the JPEG image file: exiv2 -T rename somedir/foo*.jpg No worries, the command argument rename is ok there and does no harm. It's just that the file rename action is misused to only create the side ...

Any metadata can be altered quite easily, therefore slightly sophisticated forgery may alter the metadata such that it looks more original than the actual original. It isn't difficult for instance, to forge the job id of photograph. However, supposing that the metadata is just one out of many other evidences, the state of the metadata of a photograph can ...

This only works if you have the camera set on continuous file numbering. Hit the button on the camera to view images. There should be a number in the upper right of the screen. The 1000d starts at 100-0001, and counts up to 100-9999. at 10,000 images, you should see 101-0001. Even if you delete an image from your camera and take another, the counter ...

This would seem to be this acknowledged bug in GIMP; that bug has itself has been closed as a duplicate of this bug, which has been fixed in the development ("master") builds of GIMP by a complete rewrite of the metadata handling. The question I'd more be asking here is why Partha's rebuild mentioned in MBraedley's answer fixes the problem, rather than why ...

This recompiled/repacked version of Gimp by Partha allows me to open the files without a problem. The "Edit with GIMP" context menu item doesn't work 100% out of the box, and the interface theme is different by default, but does include a bunch of useful plugins not distributed with stock Gimp. Still don't know why the stock version of Gimp won't handle ...

EXIFTool is perfect for this - the below is one of the copying examples " exiftool -tagsfromfile %d%f.CR2 -r -ext JPG dir " This example will recursively rewrite all JPG images in dir with information copied from the corresponding CR2 images in the same directories. In your case it won't be a CR2 file as your source. Instead it will be a JPG file ...

If I read the iPhoto instructions correctly, you can select all photos, choose Export from the Archive menu, and make sure to tick the checkboxes for inclusion of metadata.

I have about 1000 old photos ... I'd like to post them so people can comment on the provenance and/or people in the pics. What I need for this to work efficiently is to have these comments entered as folks peruse them online, and have them automatically saved with the photos. Ultimately I want these (edited) comments saved on the disc -- so that ...

For straight out-of-camera JPEGs, you may want to expand the metadata & data review to include things like the Quantization Table Matrix, Chroma Subsampling, and Huffman Tables, all of which help to describe how the JPEG is encoded. For example a lot of cameras use 2x1 Chroma Subsampling, while Photoshop may use 2x2 Chroma Subsampling. In regard to ...

There is a tag called "Software". I'm not 100% sure what it refers to. As in, straight out of camera photos will just be a version. It could refer to the firmware on the camera or processing software that it uses. I use an image viewer called FastStone Image Viewer. If you move the mouse all the way to the right, you can see the EXIF data. Examples: As ...

There are three EXIF fields for the Date/Time the file was last saved (DateTime), the Date/Time the original data was created (DateTimeOriginal), and the Date/Time the file was digitized (DateTimeDigitized) that might be helpful in determining if an image was "doctored", however, EXIF information can also be edited or stripped from a file, so it's no ...

Frankly, not much. The specifics will depend a lot on what you mean by "doctored" - if you're looking at the cloning out of a small object from the scene, I very much doubt you're going to get anything from the EXIF which would give you much of a clue that had happened. Obviously, for gross manipulations like compositing two images together you're going to ...

One of the potentially useful things I know of which isn't in the EXIF data on any camera that I'm aware of is the actual flash power used. As described in that question, the most obvious use here is trying to replicate a scene with automatic flash with manual flash (e.g. because you've moved the flash off-camera and don't have automatic control in that ...

Upload them all to Flickr. The Flickr uploader is very convenient for large number of files, and they give you plenty of free space. People can then like or comment on your photos. You can also share them on Facebook and other sites directly from the Flickr website, or from the mobile app. The site is designed for exactly your purpose - sharing lots of ...

While not a trivial solution, using a WordPress gallery would allow for you to have each image displayed as a post in a gallery and you could enable commenting for each photo. If you wanted to then embed that as meta data, you could extract the comments from the database directly.

I have found that many image editors modify and even delete metadata, and I am not surprised that Ufraw does that too. One way to transfer metadata from the original to the processed image is to use the very flexible ExifTool. It's a simple executable that runs on many platforms and has tons of features. Check it out here The basic command to copy metadata ...

Below is a note from EXIFTools documentation - "1) Some tags (generally tags which may affect the appearance of the image) are considered "unsafe" to write, and are only copied if specified explicitly (ie. no wildcards). See the tag name documentation for more details about "unsafe" tags." Also, see question 9b on this page: ...
