Write Custom Tags by the ExifTool


Recommended Posts



Couple of fast comments.


As Uwe wrote, you need the configuration file if you want to write custom tags with ExifTool. If you just want to read your custom tags, you don't need to do anything.


I would slightly modify your definition of filemodificationdatetime to (and this is now splitting hairs :wink: )

filemodificationdatetime => { Writable => 'date', Groups => { 2 => 'Time' } },

If you want to sort your output based on the categories (ExifTool -G2), filemodificationdatetime will now appear together with other Time tags.
