▶ NOW Supports macOS Sierra!!!
iExifer is an easy to use tool that reveals for you the EXIF metadata stored in image files.
Load and view EXIF metadata from Canon, Nikon, Minolta, Pentax, Olympus, Sony, Kodak, Sigma, Epson, Samsung, Panasonic, Kyocera, Mamiya, Fujifilm, JPEG and TIFF image files.

Most modern cameras and smartphones add information to the image file when you take a picture. This information include details about the image, how the picture was taken (ie ISO value, shutter speed) or even where it was taken, if your camera has a GPS module.

iExifer reveals that information for you in an intuitive, easy to use interface.

▶ Supports EXIF Tags version 2.21
▶ Supports proprietary Maker Notes including Lens.
▶ Supports IPTC Metadata
▶ Shows EXIF Image Preview Thumbnail if available
▶ Supports GPS Location Metadata.
▶ Finds location of the picture in Maps (requires internet connection).
▶ Quick search allows you to easily find the information you need.
▶ Copy image metadata to clipboard, allowing you to easily paste it to a document, or include it in an e-mail

We are continuously improving iExifer.
If you miss a Maker Note for your camera, let us know and we will work to add it in future releases.

Ratings and Reviews

Disappointing update


I used to like how this app worked. Kept it in my dock, dragged pictures from the web or Finder and it gave me any embedded EXIF data. Simple and clear layout.

Now when you drag an image in, it simply opens the app. You have to then select the Import tab, then drag the picture in again. Not exactly progress.

An emphatic: Meh


The UI is Windows-esque at best; basically, you have to 'load' each image individually. With that kind of speed, I could use my wife's Windows machine and go into ACDSee . . . so what is the point?

Review is of version 1.1; I paid $6, and this is absolute garbage at that price. Honestly, this wreaks of a free app. I will gladly revisit if there ends up being ANY way of navigating a given folder realtime (seriously, even if we had to 'open' sub-folders and parent folders, that would be forgivable), but as it stands, it's a no-buy.

Some background: OS X's weak point is EXIF data; finder should report basic image data (Windows even does this . . . ), but does not. Already owning Aperture, I was expecting something that would work with my Macbook Pro's trackpad or my other machines' Magic Trackpad, but here we are at 1995 with opening each image indiviually . . . skip it until it's free or has a usable UI people.

Does pretty much what it's supposed to do


Displays tag information embedded in photos. Works suites well, although if you launch it and then drop a photo on the open app, nothing seems to happen. Maybe I just haven't figured out that part of it quite yet.

I've had the best results opening the app and dropping the picture in question on the dock icon. That gives a nice display and I can see and verify the latitude & longitude coordinates coordinates quite easily. I can then compare them with GHoogle Earth (where I'm getting information for my old photos) to make sure the tags are right. All my new photos are tagged by the camera and those display correctly as well.

The only really odd behavior I've noted is that if you drop a number of pictures on the app, it opens a separate window for each of them, so if you droop, say, 50 photos, you get 50 separate dialogs, 1 per photo. Again, maybe a user error on my part.

All of that said, the app is well worth getting and is working well for me. I haven't found anything any better, so I give it a hearty thumbs up.
