ExifToolGUI is a tool for viewing/editing metadata inside a long list of file types including document, audio, video, image, PDF, and more. For images, the program can both view and edit metadata information such as camera/device used, settings on the device, and even map the location the picture was taken if the camera has GPS capability. The program also supports IPTC and XMP tags, has batch capability, and can import/export all tags.

For privacy (and file size), the program can remove all metadata from selected files.

The program is a front-end for the cross-platform ExifTool. It extracts the content of ExifTool.exe to a temp folder under the user's folder, along with thumbs, if enabled.

Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

Stealth: ? Yes

Everytime I use it, this program surprises me away with a LOT of data about files. If ever you want to try and understand the history, author, or other details about a given file, ExifTool is a great place to start.

gms9813: thanks -- updated the instructions a little, hopefully its easier

Disregard that, I just got it working. The instructions were a little confusing.

I've tried it every time it's been listed here and have yet to get it to work. I've done everything that I've seen to run in windows but it always wants to run in command line mode. To have to use something made for windows in command line mode is like mowing the yard with eyebrow tweezers. I had really high hopes for this too.

Loner: I changed the download link to hopefully make that easier/clearer. If we're still doing it wrong, please post in forums.

Ok, so the program appears on these pages and I clicked "download" which took me to the author's home page. That page is one long winded page with much information but fails to have a download. The only reference to a download that I found on the page is this "You only need to download "Windows Executable" zip file from here. After unzipping, you will see:
Case A: exiftool(-k) or Case B: exiftool(-k).exe"

Why the long winded web page?
Why no simple download button???

Sometimes program developers get too complex and forget the simple rule of "KISS" (Keep It Simple Stupid) and this is such a case.

exiftool can manage Unicode UserComment. ExiftoolGUI V3.38 cannot.

The links for download are broken. The correct is http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
