This page describes Version 4. File renaming, lift/stamp, and deleting metadata are new in Version 4, along with many additional improvements.

If you've already bought this app from the Mac App Store and want the newer direct-sale version, email support@basepath.com, including proof-of-purchase if possible, and I'll send you an unlock code free of charge.

ExifChanger is the Swiss Army Knife of EXIF utilities! Use it to change EXIF and IPTC fields, rename files, adjust dates and times, view metadata, geotag (from a track log or manually from a map), view photos, export metadata, and define presets with macros. It's the most powerful and complete EXIF app.

HANDLES MOST FILE TYPES — View and change these file types:

     AI AIT ARW CIFF CR2 CRW CS1 DCP DNG EPS EPS2 EPS3
     EPSF ERF EXIF GIF HDP ICC ICM IIQ IND INDD INDT JNG
     JP2 JPEG JPG JPM JPX MEF MIE MNG MOS MPO MRW NEF
     NRW ORF PBM PDF PEF PGM PNG PPM PS PS2 PS3 PSB PSD
     RAF RAW RW2 RWL SR2 SRW THM TIF TIFF VRD WDP X3F

USES EXIFTOOL — Actual metadata changes are performed by the well-known, proven, utility ExifTool (included), so processing is reliable and fast. For extra safety, the original file is saved, and can be restored, or deleted when it's no longer needed.

VIEW METADATA — See the most important fields (EXIF, IPTC, GPS) right on the main screen. See all the fields, even the most obscure ones, in the output from ExifTool.

ADJUST DATES AND TIMES — Set images to a date/time you specify, or automatically correct images in bulk by a fixed offset (if your camera's clock is set wrong).

GEOTAG — Geotag (longitude, latitude, and altitude), both manually (from a map) and automatically (interpolating from a GPS track). There's a track manager, to input tracks and view starting and ending points on a map. For automatic geotagging, adjust both time zone and camera's time. Geotag manually by choosing the location on a map viewer built into ExifChanger, or by using another geolocation app. Paste the location directly to ExifChanger.

SAVE SETTINGS IN PRESETS — Save values for selected fields in a preset, to be applied to images. Handy for setting metadata for standard items like photographer's name, address, website, and copyright info.

EASY BULK CHANGES — When more than one file is selected, metadata that differs is shown with the notation "mixed", but still can be changed, making bulk changes very easy.

REVIEW BEFORE COMMITTING — A review dialog shows exactly what changes are to be made to what files, so you can ensure that things will go as you intend before you make the changes permanent.

THUMBNAIL AND LIST VIEWS — Images in the selected folder(s) are shown as thumbnails or in a list view. Sort the images by name, type, or date. Include only images in the selected folder, or in subfolders also. Optionally, see a large preview image. Quickly move from image-to-image with the keyboard or mouse.

MACROS — A powerful macro facility lets you insert the value of one field into another, even to several levels. Macros for file names, EXIF, IPTC, GPS, maker's notes, and more.

RENAME FILES — Use macros to format file names with dates, parts of the original file name, your initials, camera model, or other metadata.

COPY METADATA — Lift and stamp commands make it easy to copy metadata from an image to other images. Ideal for HDR and panoramics, to get the metadata back into the resulting image.

DELETE ALL METADATA — Make images private by deleting all metadata with one command.

EXPORT METADATA — Based on a template you create, containing plain text and any combination of macros referring to metadata. Use it for generating HTML pages, data files (CSV) for input into a spreadsheet or database, SQL statements, or any other kind of text file.
