What’s new in version 12.51

Updated on Nov 22 2022

  • Added a new Olympus LensType (thanks Herb)
  • Extract C2PA JUMBF metadata from PNG images and C2PA Salt values
  • Decode NikonSettings for Z9 firmware 3.0 (thanks Warren Hatch)
  • Decode additional camm metadata from Insta360 Pro2 MP4 videos
  • Improved Verbose output when writing Composite tags to add a "+" sign to indicate related tags that are being written
  • Enhanced -geotag option CSV format to support GPSImgDirection column
  • Fixed problem where -w+ option didn't work in Windows if there were Unicode characters in the path name
  • Fixed problem where only the last image of the sequence was extracted (multiple times) when using -ee2 to extract embedded images from FLIR SEQ files
  • Fixed issue where GPS reference directions may be unknowingly written when using ExifTool 12.44 or later to write GPSLatitude or GPSLongitude without specifying a group name. The fix was to Avoid writing the Composite tags unless the Composite group is specified explicitly
  • Fixed -geotag to write orientation and track tags even if some tags in the category were missing
  • Fixed inconsistency in selecting which tag to output with the -json option when multiple tags with the same JSON key exist and the -TAG# feature is used to disable print conversion
  • Fixed problem writing QuickTime:PlayListID
  • Fixed problem writing QuickTime tags when specifying tag ID (ie. family 7 group) as well as a language code

If someone would write a GUI to integrate with this app, then it would be useful for more than the 1-in-a-1000 Mac users who are Terminal-savvy.

After installation, the app is untraceable and therefore not usable! I've tried several times, but without any results!

Why is Macupdate pointing to a compressed tarball of source files as the download when the developer provides a Mac install pkg in a dmg image file? To wit: https://sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ExifTool-10.65.dmg
