Hello guys,

I have written a plugin to read and write metadata (EXIF, IPTC and XMP)
to image files (JPEG and PNG)

The plugin is at:


Before you compile it if have to install some of the following lib
(apt-get install should work):


then you can test it with:

(metadata_editor.c and metadata_editor.glade)

You can insert new tags (only the ones that has already been registered)
to see the list of tags, look at:
(I will create a html file soon with a list of all mapped tags)

and "grep GST_TAG" into


PLEASE try it a lot, and Open bugs, or Report me, or ask me questions.

btw: the plugin has been written to be extended so other chunk based
file formats can be easily handled too.

Best Regards,
Edgard Lima
