Welcome to pyexiv2's homepage!
It is a python module that allows your python scripts to read and write metadata (EXIF, IPTC, XMP, thumbnails) embedded in image files (JPEG, TIFF, ...).
It is designed as a high-level interface to the functionalities offered by libexiv2. Using python's built-in data types and standard modules, it provides easy manipulation of image metadata.
pyexiv2 is distributed under the GPL version 2 license.
The latest version is 0.3.2, released 2011-10-24, compiled and tested against libexiv2 0.19, 0.20, 0.21, 0.21.1 and 0.22. It requires Python ≥ 2.6.
pyexiv2 is now deprecated in favour of GExiv2, a GObject-based wrapper around libexiv2. Thanks to GObject Introspection support, GExiv2 supports Python 2 and 3.
If your application uses pyexiv2, you might want to consider porting it over to GExiv2.
