ExifTool Functionality from R

Reads, writes, and edits EXIF and other file metadata using ExifTool < https://exiftool.org/>, returning read results as a data frame. ExifTool supports many different metadata formats including EXIF, GPS, IPTC, XMP, JFIF, GeoTIFF, ICC Profile, Photoshop IRB, FlashPix, AFCP and ID3, as well as the maker notes of many digital cameras by Canon, Casio, DJI, FLIR, FujiFilm, GE, GoPro, HP, JVC/Victor, Kodak, Leaf, Minolta/Konica-Minolta, Motorola, Nikon, Nintendo, Olympus/Epson, Panasonic/Leica, Pentax/Asahi, Phase One, Reconyx, Ricoh, Samsung, Sanyo, Sigma/Foveon and Sony.


Version 0.1.1

  • Failure of configure_exiftoolr() to find a local installation of ExifTool now throws an error rather than just a warning, preventing infinite recursion by exif_read() and exif_version().
