To manage the data written in your photos.

PhotInfo is a simple app to control all the information (location, date, dimensions, camera, etc.) written in the pictures contained in the Photos Library of your mac.

Please note that the app (currently) read only the pictures in the Photos Library, not other images.

# Why PhotInfo

Digital cameras (including those in mobile devices) add metadata to the photos they take. These data are called Exif tags. They provide an opportunity to learn not only the exact date and time of the shoot, but also parameters such as exposure time, shutter speed, image resolution, device model, ISO, focal length, whether the flash was used, etc.

Letting PhotInfo access the Photo Library on your iPhone, iPad or Mac, and selecting an image, you can view all of its metadata, delete these metadata or modify some tags. With the PhotInfo’s Extension it is possible to view the main tags directly from other apps, like the native Photos app (iPhone and iPad only).

You may delete or modify the image tags to protect your privacy before sharing the image; or you may add GPS data if you have forgotten to turn on location services when you took the picture; or you may joke by setting improbable location values; or…

# With PhotInfo you can:

• display an image with the main tags in a single view
• view all the Exif tags from the picture
• copy the key data or the content of individual tags
• (with a very simple interface) create a copy of the image eliminating or modifying tags for:
- the place (you can take it from another picture)
- the date and time when the photo was taken (you can take it from another picture)
- the orientation
- the author (the artist)
- the copyright
- the image description
• create a copy of the image with the minimum content of the tags (related to image data structure, such as the image size, resolution and orientation)
• see where the photo was taken, in different ways:
- visualize the city name
- locate in a map
- find the coordinates
- show the address
• share, favorite, hide or delete a photo
• quickly scroll through the albums of your device
• check single images from burst photos

One of the best

...for viewing and correcting metadata. The ‘share’ sheet shows metadata across all apps I have tried. Until Photos app and OneDrive give access to photo details, this is super helpful.

Great app for working with your EXIF data

It's amazing how much information is included in EXIF data. With that in mind, it's important to me to be able to find and read the data.

I've enjoyed using PhotInfo while I hone my photo skills with my new DSLR. It makes it easy to see the values that I use most often.

Most EXIF-reading apps seem to be built by developers who use Excel. Photinfo looks and feels like it was developed by a photographer. All the data is well organized and easy to read.

Most of the time, I'm browsing my photos in the Photos app, and I'll see a detail (motion blur, blown details, dark exposure) and I'll wonder what I did, and what I can do to correct it in the future. It's great that I can use PhotInfo to see that information without leaving the Photos app.

PhotInfo makes working with my photos so much more smoother and more informative and it's helped me become a better photographer.

If you are aware of the existence of EXIF data, you want this app.

Fail to save changes

I’ve tried using this app for many photos by correcting the original photo taken date in the EXIF field, since many of my photos are scanned from prints. The app allows me to change the date but when I save the data it reverts back to the original date every time. I’m on the latest iOS 11 on an iPhone X.
