Sets (not edits) most wanted EXIF data in an image.

Overview

SetEXIFData writes the most wanted EXIF data in an image- or movie-file.

  • Use a date from the Finder or retrieve the date/time from its file name, if present
  • You can add and increment EXIF dates, times and sequence numbers.
  • Data you can set includes document name, artist, copyright, date/time, latitude and longitude, and keywords
  • Renaming a file afterwards, using EXIF dates/times and sequence numbers, is supported
  • You can modify the Finder's 'Date create' and 'Date modified' dates
  • You can use an address from the Mac's Contacts to start geotagging

You can use SetEXIFData unregistered forever, with a batch processing limit of only 5 photos a time. A donation of €8 (approx. $9) is requested to remove this limit.

What's new in SetEXIFData

Version 8.0:

Note: Serial numbers are version independent, and thus remain valid for v6 and higher

Added:
  • For retrieving a date from a file name, where there's only YYYY-MM, you can now enter a default day in the 'Date/Time original'-field for Day.
Changed:
  • When geotagging a movie file, only XMP-group GPS-tags are used.

after installing the contained EXIFTOOL, I start the app SetEXIFData but only get the message "Could not find a valid EXIFtool installation." although I can access the exiftool in terminal... what's wrong?

This is NOT free when you put restrictions like this: You can use SetEXIFData unregistered forever, with a batch processing limit of only 5 photos a time. A donation of €6 is requested for registration.

Sorry, but I can't open the file, because it is NOT written for PPC-Macs, so not for mine …

Excellent. It wasn't compatible with FileVault. Marc (developer) selflessly helped me to solve it, so please DONATE. He deserves it.

The official EXIFtool installer indicates that it places the binary in /usr/bin not /usr/local/bin: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/install.html#OSX I use EXIFtool as installed by MacPorts, so my copy is located in /opt/local/bin . Will SetEXIFData work with that out of the box, or do I need to make a symbolic link in /usr/local/bin to the actual binary?

Same to me. But I just notice, thanks to Odysseus, that GraphicConverter does it as well.

You probably didn't read the text at the bottom of the original folder. When opening the "SetEXIFData "folder" you'll see 4 icons. Below them it reads " To install, double click the ExifTool dmg file and run the installer ..." You haven't installed the extension tool, therefore it couldn't be found. Just my guess...

I did the same thing the first try. Then I statred wondering about all the "stuff" in the original dmg. ;-) This little app is a lot lighter than GraphicConverter and a lot cheaper too!

No, it really doesn't Curt. I installed from DMG and dragged EXIFTOOL to AppFolder. Opened App and drag a photo (JPG) in the EXIFTOOL window (or on the App itself) and photo is listed there, but as soon as I try to select it a message is alway shown: "An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application most shot down" and quit. ???

Should be solved now. It looks for existing installations in /usr/local/bin too.

Excellent. This is the first piece of software that I've been able to find that will allow me to set EXIF dates for images that I have scanned. And the fact that I can add EXIF dates to a batch of images is great. I'll be making a donation. Well done!
