### NOTE ###
This app is NOT for editing the library of Apple's Photos.
Apple's Photos makes some data files for metadata (e.g. metaSchema.db) in the Photos.photoslibrary > database while importing image files.
Apple's Photos shows metadata written in the metaSchema.db, not show metadata embedded in the imported image files.
Photo Meta Edit does edit embedded metadata in the image files, so Apple's Photos does not show the changes.
If you want Photos to show the changes, re-import image files to remake the metaSchema.db of Photos.
It would be better to edit before importing images for avoiding unexpected troubles in Photos. Photos never edit original imported image files. The data files in the Photos.photoslibrary should not be edited by 3rd party apps. It could make some troubles.
・Fixed an issue where the app does not open files in macOS 10.12
・Fixed an issue where a crash may occur after resizing the sidebar in macOS 10.12
・Changed the unicode encoding to use in the Tagged-Format metadata
UTF-16BE and UTF-16LE are used respectively according to the endianness of the metadata
Easy to add Description to IPTC Metadata
I bought this to add descriptions into the metadata for photos taken with my Samsung smartphone. I use Picasa to manage my pictures and it is unable to write to the file on the Samsung photos like it did with my digital camera. I want the descriptions/comments to be embedded in the picture for sharing and this app easily allowed me to do that.
Does not read XMP
I have photos with XMP data that uses custom namespaces. The data is visible fine in Photoshop and other apps, but this app does not show it at all. I purchased it just for the XMP support as depicted in the screenshots. On to the next app...
Needs an easier interface
I bought this program to batch shift the date/time and set the GPS location.
It took around 10 minutes to figuire out how to actually accomplish this, but now that I know how it will be easy to do again. $4 for a batch EXIF editing program… I like that! Haven’t run into any problems so far.
