Creating and Editing EXIF and IPTC Using Import from XML File

Tags in an XML File

Each tag in an XML file is defined using the following descriptions:

  • Property Tag - name of tag
  • Type - type of tag
  • Count - size of tag
  • Value - value of tag


Export Methods

There are two export methods:

  1. Batch export of EXIF and IPTC information for multiple images recorded in a single file.
  2. Batch export of EXIF and IPTC information for multiple images each recorded in separate files.

You can choose which of the two types of export/import to use. Select the main menu item "Tools"->"Options" tab, then go to "Settings" and select the option under "Export/Import to/from single File".
