Hi Everybody

exiv2 ( http://www.exiv2.org/ ) is another command line utility for 
extracting and writing exif data to/from jpeg image files. I use it for 
writing location and caption information into the pictures I have taken, 
and then displaying the information back in a nice format. On Debian, it 
is available as a package with that name.
