What people are saying about Exif Pilot
“I am delighted with this software. I can’t tell you how much work this program saves for me. Can you imagine how long it would take me to label each and every image one at a time? It took me a couple years working almost everyday to create the spreadsheet with the information on all of my 37K+ slides. Fortunately, I created this spreadsheet years ago when I was still shooting film. Now I am digitizing these old slides (I use the Nikon scanner). Using Exif Pilot, I can now upload all my spreadsheet data into the metadata file on each image rapidly and easily. What a joy; I love this software!”
“I am a 77 year young wallpaper junkie. I found Exif Pilot by chance with Google and have been using it to preserve exif tags when I make improvements on the Penguin, Polar Bear or Bird photos I collect.
I try my damnedest to attribute and indicate on each photo the name of the photographer and location. I use Exif Pilot to backup to MSExcel the EXIF and IPTC data before I correct “impurities” on the photos such as camera flash in eyes and worms on beaks. Then I transfer to the corrected image the original EXIF and IPTC data to the corrected one. GREAT TOOL!”
Barbara Ann Ecroyd
“As a naturalist, I make lots of slideshows of animals, insects and plants. I put captions on the slides, giving information such as the common and scientific name, the location and the date. EXIF Pilot makes it easy to add the information to EXIF fields. My slideshow pro-gram (PTE) generates the captions from these fields automatically. Many pictures are of the same species, or at the same place. Entering the same data on each individual picture is time consuming and tedious. The Batch Editing plugin speeds the process up and re-sults in fewer random typing errors.”
Michael Berry (UK)
“I supply images to Charities that are important to me, supporting them through my photography. Digital image files have the opportunity to add a layer of securability & traceability by editing the Exif data with such things as Artist/copyright/image description/comment. After trialling different products, I chose Exif Pilot because of the simple logical layout of the Graphical interfaces and image preview thumbnail. Adding Keyword & Tags is equally easier. Having the Batch processing Add-on will save considerable time and help me supply the images promptly.”
