Let MetaImage take care of your images metadata on Mac. Instead of manually editing data for every picture in the Photos app, you get a completely automated flow. Handle every tag format — including EXIF, IPTC, and XMP. Flexibly add GPS coordinates. Create presets and apply the same changes to multiple pictures.

- Over 5000 tags supported

You can get your hands on all the tags. If you search the Mac App Store, Metalmage is the only tool available with a support for MakerNotes, EXIF IPTC, XMP, and tons of other tags within one interface. So it’s definitely the right tool to consolidate your metadata work on a Mac.


Forget about converting, this tool handles all the images you give it. Move your file to the app window and start editing right away. Metalmage works with over 90 of image formats, including HEIC, JPEG, PNG, RAW, CR2, CR3, TIFF, and many more.


Easily add GPS coordinates to your images. You can either type in the name of the location and let the app find it, click on the map, or copy the address from another file. MetaImage also allows you to restore previous locations and search by GPS tags.


With Metalmage, you not only batch edit images metadata, but automate the full flow. Based on specific characteristics, create presets and use them for recurring editions. Most likely, many of your edits will be the same. So the more presets you make, the more time you save.


You can go through all the metadata without leaving your Photos app. MetaImage has a Photos extension that allows to read all kinds of data, including EXIF, XMP, IPTC, and MakerNote. Whenever you need to make changes, upload a photo to the app and fix the metadata instantly.


Decide which tags should be displayed in the app, based on what you’re used to work with. Browse tags and choose your preferred ones. You can customize the tags displayed in Metalmage and the Photos extension separately.


MetaImage is designed so that just anyone can pick it up and use it, particularly if you have even a rudimentary knowledge of photography. However, if something isn’t clear, you can submit feedback or ask questions within the app itself.

A pretty good app

I’m not a pro photographer, so some (many) of the features are unimportant to me. I have scanned in a number of old photos and I wanted to enter dates, places, keywords, and captions. It has presets that l could use for several of the features, for example, camera, good. I could not create a preset for a location.

For Photos, the IPTC Captions is the same as the descriptions in Photos. This is on a separate menu. I wish there was a preset for IPTC Caption, date, keyword, and location. All of that is pretty good, as many reviewers have also reported. I would not advise editing too many photos before processing, converting, overwriting, or saving. It has crashed many times. I’m slowly noting some patterns, but I shudder each time I hit the Process, overwrite all edited files. I’d add one more star just for this. I’d add another star if the presets were more customizable.

Update: This is still pretty good. If I update while the cursor is on the “caption”, this will crash the program. In comparing with other EXIF editors, this may have the cleanest windows for the EXIF and IPTC data. Also, the developer contact me shortly after I posted my review, for this, I’m increasing my rating.

Good, but...

I was looking for a program to edit the tags of several scanned pictures so they would apprear cronologically correct. While this app does just that, there is one very glaring issue Ithat I am hoping the developer will address. It is not obvious as to how to get the tags to "stick". The extra step of having to validate each and every tags as it is entered is time consuming and tedious. Why not allow all tags to be entered, then validated as a batch when saving? Another handy feature that should be added is the ability to copy data from one tag to another - specifically the date fields (there are three of them). I typically keep all three date fields the same, as would be the case with a camera generated, unedited photo.

Developer Response ,

Hello SBoelens, Thank you for your comment. The next update would make it possible not to press validate at each step. Thus the edition will be faster and less tedious. I want to inform you that you can use the command C, command V shortcuts to copy paste values between tags. Do not hesitate to contact me by email for more information or to suggest improvements:

Great App to Organize and View Metadata

My primary interest was in accessing and viewing all the metadata in my images, but especially the Fujifilm makers notes and XMP. For viewing the data, this app is excellent. At first I thought the data was limited/incomplete, but then I realized you need to edit the Preferences/Tag Preferences. From there you can select any tags you want to view from a complete list. Then you can drag and sort your selected tags and even add insert headings so that the tags are organized in the way that is meaningful to you. You can also hide any tags that are blank, so you are not swimming in blank fields. I cannot comment on the apps ability to revise the metadata, but as a tool to meaningfully organize and view the metadata in your images, its well worth the money.
