I just happened to drop by http://freshmeat.net/ to look for some
stuff for my printer, and I saw this on the home page:

   PornView 0.1.2 [1]
   by trem0r - Saturday, November 23rd 2002 06:53 PST

   About: PornView is a GTK+-based image viewer/manager. Features
   include thumbnail previews, thumbnail caching, directory tree
   views, and and adjustable zoom. Fullscreen view and slideshows
   allow for basic presentation of images.

   Changes: This release adds file operations, EXIF data, gettext
   support, and a Polish translation, and fixes many small bugs.

I was curious about its 'EXIF data' support, so I went to check
it out and noticed that this screen shot [2] has a popup menu that
says 'Movie -> Create Thumbnail'; might be worth trying.

(I thought the package name was just a joke, but apparently not :)

Hmm... I just compiled and installed it, and it's fairly nice for
something with version number 0.1.2, but I couldn't get it to do
anything with any of the movie formats I happen to have around
(mpeg, avi, quicktime.)

Its view of exif data is quite good; apparently it uses libexif [3]
to do all the dirty work. I'll have to play around with that sometime.

I just downloaded and compiled libexif, libexif-gtk, gexif, and exif
(in that order), and this is fantastic stuff!

In particular, gexif is a general EXIF metadata viewing and editing
application; screen shot:

A few weeks ago I wrote:

| I'd still really like to find a general EXIF editing script.

and this is about 100 times better than anything I expected to find.

'exif' is a command line app that seems pretty useful, too.

Woohoo!
