We are excited to announce that we have changed to a new design! We didn’t transfer all the pages yet. If you miss any page or any other link, please contact us thus we can help you.
At the moment, there are two problems with embedded fonts:
Most fonts are too large if they were to be entirely embedded in an output PDF file. The so-called subsetting technique allows one to make files much smaller. By subsetting, only required characters are embedded (only several glyphs instead of the full set of glyphs). Since this process is not standardized, there could be unexpected problems. For example, the POST table (that links each glyph ID to a unicode value for further creation of PDF) could be empty.
Delta font problem:
– There are three types of embedded fonts in EMF files:
– Engine font – is a normal TrueType font that could be packed via dttf table. There are no problems with such fonts.
– Subset font – is a subfont of TrueType. This font could be also packed via dttf table and there are no problems with such fonts as well.
Delta font – this is a part of a TrueType subfont. Such a font contains a set of glyphs and this font has no name. Although Microsoft writes in its documentation that this font must be combined with a subset font used previously, it doesn’t explain how to find this subset font. The solution we found at the moment requires too much RAM.
We are aware of these problems and are going to solve them, but we are not sure how long it will take us.

Summer is the time of vacations. And we do shots on our cameras. Very often we need to edit metadata in our photos using an EXIF editor. The possible problems that can appear in the photos:
1) shift time zone;
2) shift date and time;
3) fix GPS coordinates;
4) add comments, keywords, description.
These tasks can be solved using our editor Exif Pilot. See our video tutorials on YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgGa-bL1ZsYPpCRJpVqQ6YQ
Use Exif Pilot and don’t worry about your photos taken during vacations. You can fix metadata with help of Exif Pilot easy and simple.
Exif Pilot 4.13 with support of editing metadata of panorama photos has been released.
Some time ago Google added a new feature to their set of web based applications recently. Publishing geo located spherical panoramas (aka Photo Spheres) on Views. And Facebook announced support for 360 photos and panoramas. When you upload a 360 photo or panorama, Facebook automatically processes the photo and presents it in an interactive viewer.

The new version of Exif Pilot 4.12 has been released. Now our EXIF tool supports the full cycle of metadata processing: view, create, edit, and delete EXIF, IPTC metadata. Also Exif Pilot has ability to view XMP tags, but editing such type of metadata is not available yet. In the latest release we’ve added new functionality to remove specified tags from the images. You can easily either delete desired tags from picture, or clear all metadata. Also, we have fixed several minor bugs. Continue reading
We do our releases of Exif Pilot permanently. We hope, we can to continue to release our EXIF editor. Many users sent us requests to add feature for export/import settings of the program. It is useful feature when user installs new version of the our EXIF software. Many our users choose different settings to work with program comfortably and efficiently. Continue reading
There is 2 new features was added in the current version. The one is settings for delimeter(comma, space, or tab) for export/import to/from text file in CSV format, and another is added time zone adjustment for editing Date Time, Date Time Original, and Date Time Digitized. Continue reading
We are pleased to announce the release of Exif Pilot v.4.8. The new version of Exif Pilot allows to view, edit, create and delete camera camera manufacturers tags (known as MakerNote tags) still more. Buttons for copying dates from ‘Date Time’ to ‘Date Time Original’ and ‘Date Time Digitized’ were added in EXIF metadata editing dialog. So, you can fill in dates and times by one click. Try it, it’s easy. Continue reading
Many companies in a creation of documents use your logos as images in the headers or footers. Usually these logos are placed on each page of the document. When we need to convert a document to PDF, then we have a problem of PDF file size reduction. The solution is using reference to the image instead of embedding the identical images on each page. Fortunately, PDF format allows us to do this. A similar problem arises in cases when on the page (s) we use several identical images. In this case, too, в can insert only one copy of image in a document, and in other places we can use just a link to this image. And the size of the output file will be significantly reduced.
Like that we were able to optimize emf2pdf converter in our PDF library. As a consequence, the size of the generated PDF file was decreased in proportion to a quantity of images contained in emf files. The below you can see comparative data, which we have obtained during testing on real emf files from our users. The size of each picture was 160 KB. Before optimize, the resulting PDF document had a size 2.9 MB, after optimization the size is 0.9 MB. So, after deletion of the same image, file size was reduced by more than 3 times. We also recommend to use compression of PDF documents for reducing the file size by using the property Compression. In some cases, this can reduce the file size in 2 or more times.
