Any tools for bulk editing EXIF data

Specifically, to put a piece of text in the comments of a pile of .jpgs.

ExifTool would be my first choice of application to work with EXIF data.

I found that in looking for a tool but I see nothing on the website that suggests it can do bulk operations.

Perhaps the ExifTool developer just doesn't remember to mention such basic feature. The program can take multiple files or directories as command argument(s) and then process all those files.

Are you looking to edit the JPEG Header Comment or EXIF Comment field?

AnalogExif looks like it might work for EXIF data.

Maybe Exiftool or Jhead


You could also hunt through here . There are at least 10 editors the Edit/Write JPEG that are Share/Freeware on Windows.
