JHead Exif - Jpeg Header Manipulation Tool

JHead Exif - Jpeg Header Manipulation Tool.

Exif is a Jpeg header manipulation tool for Linux that can fix broken jpeg images that have corrupt header info. The program is completely command-line based.

NOTE: This tool is very popular.

However, it can also extract from an Exif JPEG file the following information:

  • Time and date the picture was taken
  • Camera mask and model
  • Integrated Exif Thumbnail
  • shutter speed
  • Camera F-stop number
  • Flash is used (yes / no)
  • Remote camera was focused on
  • Focal length and calculate 35 mm corresponding focal length
  • Resolution
  • GPS info, if stored in the image
  • IPTC header
  • XMP data

Things that can be changed in an exif jpeg file:

  • Repeat images by rotation mark with jpegtran
  • Set or relatively adjust internal exif time stamps
  • Fix date / time slots in large-party pictures
  • Change name or date stamp files according to exif time stamp
  • Transfer exif headers between images
  • Replace thumbnails in the Exif headings
  • Edit jpeg comments (but not the Exif comments)
  • Delete exif or comment sections from jpeg images
  • Create a new minimal copy title with date and thumbnail

How to use the program via a terminal window, commands etc.
