Extract Information From Image Using Exiftool Or Website
ExifTool is a free and open-source, cross-platform software program for reading, writing, and manipulating image, audio, and video metadata. It is platform independent, available as both a Perl library (Image::ExifTool) and command-line application. ExifTool is commonly incorporated into different types of digital workflows and supports many types of metadata including Exif, IPTC, XMP, JFIF, GeoTIFF, ICC Profile, Photoshop IRB, FlashPix, AFCP and ID3, as well as the manufacturer-specific metadata formats of many digital cameras. It can be used on its own from the command line, or it can be used by other programs such as Prune and Geotag to read and write coordinate information in photographs. The image hosting site Flickr uses ExifTool to parse the metadata from uploaded images.
ExifTool implements its own open metadata format. It is designed to encapsulate meta information from many sources, in binary or textual form, and bundle it together with any type of file. It can either be a single file, wrapping existing data, or used as a sidecar file, carrying for example Exif or XMP metadata.
Exiftool is free and open source release under the same terms as Perl.
