Software Update: ExifTool 12.39

Spread the love

Phil Harvey has released version 12.39 of ExifTool. ExifTool is a free and cross-platform program that allows the metadata of a large number of files can be managed and edited. It works from the command line, but there are 3rd party solutions available that allow it to be used with a graphical user interface as well. New versions appear regularly, but most releases are made available under the beta flag. This update is also referred to as a development version; the latest stable release is version 12.30. Since version 12.37, the following changes and improvements have been made:
