1) Is it possible to add author and copyright data to EXIF, when IrfanView doesn't show any such fields at present? I.e., can those fields be added?
2) If so, please can you recommend a batch/bulk means of adding and/or editing EXIF/IPTC data? I'm thinking of something like a file manager with a thumbnails view where I can mark the images for a particular operation, as opposed to a bulk rename-type utility where all files in a folder are operated on, without much choice. However, if all else fails, or works out too expensive, I'd be prepared to take that route.
I'm not looking for image alteration features, only EXIF/IPTC data. Naturally, the cheaper the better
I've heard of several that claim to do something close to what I'm looking for, including (apart from programs that are primarily image editors):
- AttributeMagic Pro ($25)
- PowerExif ($49.99 basic version, $89.99 for batch operation Pro version)
- METAmachine ($49.00)
- Photo Mechanic ($150)
