exiftool itself can now also generate GPX files. You can download the gpx.fmt template from the exiftool website, then run exiftool -p ./gpx.fmt *JPG > output.gpx Some useful options: -if makes exiftool only process files with a gps tag, -fileOrder allows processing in a forced order, -d allows formatting the datatime string. For example: exiftool -if '...

"Primary Platform" is part of the ICC profile, which is related to colorspace. Under "Device Model" and "Colorspace", you should see sRGB, which was created jointly by Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard (HP). If you look further you should also see the color profile is listed as being created by, and copyrighted to, HP. It appears that somewhere along the line, ...

No. Once they have it, what they have is a completely separate copy, entirely in their control.

Exiftool is going to be the easiest way to do this. Here is a script that generates KML output for a list of images. You can modify this if you want a KML path, etc... #! /usr/bin/env python # -*- coding: utf-8 -*- """ Create a KML file based on exif data Requires exiftool to have been installed Usage: exif2kml.py *.jpg > output.kml """ import ...

The solution is to avoid direct import by Aperture. Import them onto the disk using your camera software, or by using a card reader, or if you camera is suppored as a 'device' then direct copy in Finder. Run the command: exiftool -d %Y-%m-%d_%H-%M-%S '-filename<${datetimeoriginal}.${subsectimeoriginal}.%e' This will format the filename as 2016-12-...

Exiftool is great at removing metadata from photos and viewing metadata from others. ffmpeg is must better to use to remove metadata from videos. A generic "remove all" command would be this. [credit to a guy who once wrote this on a forum. You sir, are amazing.] ffmpeg -i in.mov -map_metadata -1 -c:v copy -c:a copy out.mov

The tags are stored not in EXIF data but in IPTC tags. I was able to view and modify them using the iptc command, which uses libiptcdata. Viewing the tags: $ iptc test.jpg Adding a tag: $ iptc -a Keywords -v testing test.jpg

No, it's not possible to edit any message once it has been sent with iMessage, photos included.

Metadata edits and location information assigned using the Photos application exist only in the Photos library database. The Photos application does not modify your original images. I.e. it does not write EXIF / IPTC geotags to your image files. The Photos application can bake some of the metadata into JPEGs you export. These are JPEG copies of your images ...

I had a suspicion that iOS Photos requires that videos are MOV files for location data to be displayed. So, I converted the MP4 file to a MOV file using the following command: & "PATH\ffmpeg.exe" -i "PATH\Skydive_OpenShot_ExifTool_Test.mp4" -acodec copy -vcodec copy -f mov "PATH\Skydive_OpenShot_ExifTool_Test.mov" Then I added the metadata / tags to ...

Can you try to check EXIF Data on iPhone using Third party apps like EXIF Viewer by Fluntro or any other EXIF Apps you can get for free on Appstore. Chances are high that, EXIF informations are stripped while you transferred photo from iPhone to Windows. Normally, iPhone to Mac photo transfer over airdrop doesn't strip EXIF Metadata. But since I am not sure ...

The metadata in the filesystem is exposed from mdls but I don’t recall ever seeing exit data being parsed as that is embedded in the binary portion of the file and not stored as filesystem metadata on APFS or HFS. Go get exif tool as a stand alone download https://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ or you can use https://brew.sh to get exiftool and ...

Apple's Messages doesn't strip EXIF data from photos transmitted 'in blue'. I can't test for if it does if they arrive as SMS 'in green', though that might be done by whatever network sends the SMS. You might need to test if that data is still present, or has been stripped on the way, or even before sending. Photoshop's new 'Export' will strip most exif ...

bplist would suggest it's a binary property list. If you can pull out the raw binary, you can decode it. There are some command line tools available. Search for bplist online. If that fails, a discussion of the format is available here: https://synalysis.com/how-to-decode-apple-binary-property-list-files/ My guess would be that the excellent Exiftool ...

MakerNotes To add BurstUUID for non-iPhone taken photos, you need to copy in MakerNotes from an iPhone created image. See Re: Help with MakerApple metadata for a related discussion and example: exiftool -v -overwrite_original -m -P "-burstuuid=$UUID" -tagsfromfile IMG_0178.jpg G0232134.JPG Phil Harvey, the creator of ExifTool, says this about MakerNotes ...

I do not believe Image Events is able to get that type of meta data from the photo however mdls can do it, e.g. mdls -name kMDItemLatitude -name kMDItemLongitude /path/to/photo however it all depends what exactly your trying to do with this info. I personally prefer using exiftool however you'd have to install it. To answer the question in your comment: If ...

At least with Photos v3.0, it does export the photos with the current date and time (which is undesirable) but the photos still have the original (correct) timestamp inside the EXIF data. That sounds like it may differ from your experience, so go ahead and check with Photos v3.0 If when you do export your photos again they still retain the correct EXIF ...

OS X Photos app has this functionality built in, under Image -› Adjust Date and Time. It opens a dialog showing current time stamp and prompting for corrected one. If multiple images were selected, date and time of the first photo is shown; the adjustment is used to calculate time shift to apply to all selected photos.
