Interesting. I've used wrjpgcom(1) to add metadata to jpegs although
that feature of jpeg seems to be little used elsewhere.
I don't have exiftool (just fetched it from the net) although I see
from strings(1) that the date for many photos is there in a header
field of some kind. I gather, from glancing over the EXIF standard
(MEGO), that EXIF is built on top of TIFF? I once commenced trying to
beat up the TIFF libs with a view to writing my own image manipulation
code. It wasn't very long before I decided that I didn't care enough
about it to grovel through all the defines, typedefs and other
indirection to the required extent.
So I have a new tool to play with, thanks. Although I'm not sure I'll
have much need for most of the capabilities.
