Any way to losslessly edit EXIF data on JPGs?
Posted by: prymsnap

I know I can easily edit EXIF data on JPGs via PhotoShop's File Info, but re-saving with the new EXIF info will be loss-y. Correct? Is there a way to edit the EXIF data withot loss? I downloaded a command-line app but cannot figure out how to use it (and the developer does not offer instructions...assuming, perhaps, that users already understand command-line apps.) Thanks!

I use a tool called Exifrenamer to change the filename to the photo date and time. But it can update EXIF info without opening the file.

Give that a go?

I was wondering about that. But I couldn't find a consensus online about its being destructive or not (with JPGs).

I would say Bridge does not because I will update © info and other data to thousands of Jpegs in bulk and the EXIF is updated far faster than it wold be possible to open and save the jpegs.

That makes good sense. Thanks!
