jhead - Exif Jpeg header and thumbnail manipulator program (freeware).

Came across this little program during my endless morning web-surfing routine... might be useful for some.

PureJPEG is a Win32 Command Line tool that does similar stuff.

here's something similar but different

    *  Supports EXIF (up to 2.2) and IPTC data in JPEG and TIFF files
    * Reading and displaying of makernotes by Canon, Casio, Fuji, Minolta, Nikon and Olympus
    * Backing up, restoring and comparing metadata (EXIF/IPTC)
    * Editing of metadata (for JPEG files only)
    * Inserting EXIF data from THM files (for JPEG files only)
    * Creating/inserting/rotating EXIF thumbnails (for JPEG files only)
    * Customizeable view of metadata
    * Export/import of metadata (CSV, Canto Cumulus, descript.ion files)
    * Renaming and redating with various formats
    * Lossless rotation (for JPEG files only)
    * Cropping (with aspect ratio)
    * Watermarks
    * Slideshow
    * Supports English and German language
    * Runs under Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP (runs not under Windows 95)
not updated since 2002 but I still hear it being mentioned (as being good)
nice icon too - but I dont have it installed at the mo
in fact I hardly used it cause I dont tend to bother with exif info
I notice you can add comments (tags?)

also compare/replace, rename:-

It's one seems to know about Microsoft Photo Info.
