Rosetta Metadata-extractor tool

Rosetta Metadata-extractor tool. Chris Erickson. March 10, 2015.
We have been looking at creating a Rosetta plugin to extract metadata from other types of image files, particularly Canon raw images. A tool on Github looked like it was a great starting place; it was created by Drew Noakes. This tool extracts many types metadata from many types of image files, including the Canon and Nikon raw images. This extractor tool metadata-extractor, is a Java library and works with Exif, IPTC, XMP, ICC and other metadata which may be present in a single image:

Metadata formats include:
  • Exif
  • IPTC
  • XMP
  • ICC Profiles
  • Photoshop fields
  • PNG properties
  • BMP properties
  • GIF properties
  • PCX properties
Types of files it will process:
  • JPEG
  • TIFF
  • WebP
  • PSD
  • PNG
  • BMP
  • GIF
  • ICO
  • PCX
  • Camera Raw
    Camera-specific "makernote" data is decoded for many types of digital cameras.
    Our plugin can extract the relevant metadata; we are working now to integrate that with Rosetta to process our SIP files.
