Phil Harvey has posted ExifTool v10.55, the first production release since v10.50 on April 20. The small download is available three formats, including a Windows executable and Macintosh OS X package.

Changes since the last non-production release include:

  • Added support for GIF multimedia extensions
  • Added a couple of new Sony/Minolta lenses
  • Added a new Nikon LensID
  • Added new Composite TotalPathPoints tag to photoshop_paths.config
  • Decode a number of new Sony tags and updated some others
  • Decode a new Pentax tag and fixed decoding of another
  • Updated iptcCore.args for new IPTC specification
  • Changed description of a couple of AVI Model tags to match Exif
  • Patched tests to avoid failures with Perl 5.25.11 due to missing ."" in @INC
  • Fixed an incorrect warning from the experimental Validate feature

In addition to the production releases, Harvey posts regular updates to ExifTool to handle new cameras and newly-decoded tags. His site includes an encyclopedia of Exif Tag Names in addition to extensive documentation and links to other resources.

We rely on the Perl library to write copyright information into the Exif header of our JPEGs and into DNG files. We also use it to read Exif header information. Our Services page includes a blow-by-blow account of building an OS X contextual menu service using ExifTool and we've added a Services Request form so you can request our help with your own software development.

We've explained how to reset the capture time in your images with ExifTool in Spring Back After The Fact. And we've written about using the tool in Copyrighter Pro to add copyright information to your images, as well. It's really the Swiss Army knife of Exif data.
