Image metadata manipulation tool. More information:

  • Print a summary of the image Exif metadata:

exiv2 {{path/to/file}}

  • Print all metadata (Exif, IPTC, XMP) with interpreted values:

exiv2 -P kt {{path/to/file}}

  • Print all metadata with raw values:

exiv2 -P kv {{path/to/file}}

  • Delete all metadata from an image:

exiv2 -d a {{path/to/file}}

  • Delete all metadata, preserving the file timestamp:

exiv2 -d a -k {{path/to/file}}

  • Rename the file, prepending the date and time from metadata (not from the file timestamp):

exiv2 -r {{'%Y%m%d_%H%M%S_:basename:'}} {{path/to/file}}
