ExifPro Image Viewer
ExifPro is an image browser application that can help you display, describe, tag, and manipulate your collection of photographs.
ExifPro offers several view modes like thumbnails, previews, or image details. Selected images may be copied, resized, cropped, rotated, renamed, and adjusted. ExifPro can present information embedded in photographs (EXIF metadata) describing different parameters used by digital cameras while taking shots. One can create HTML albums or slide shows using built-in generators, print images, append descriptions, and tags, automatically rename and transfer photographs.
Viewer window provides zooming and panning, image color and aspect correction, light table, and a slide show.
Here viewer can be seen with a preview bar, and a light table. Preview bar provides quick access to all loaded images, and the light table may be used as a place to keep selected images. View can be split in up to four panes to inspect several images side by side, while magnifier allows examining photos in detail.Download Now

What does it mean in practice? Both JPEG and raw images may be tagged and described. This information metadata gets embedded inside JPEG files, or is written to a separate file that accompanies raw images (so called sidecar XMP). It is transparent to an end user; tagging/describing just works.
Of course this new file information editing is a superset of existing ExifPro's functionality. Although the point was to enable tagging of raw images, XMP format is currently employed by recent versions of Photoshop (CS/CS2/Elements), so I'm playing catch up. I wanted to be able to read this information when it's available.
XMP is flexible and capable. But that also means that it takes time to tame (from software development point of view). So, when is it ready? I've been actively working on it, but I still have a few technical obstacles to solve. I'm hoping to have this project completed during the incoming school break.
Note: There is more new features coming in the next release, but XMP is currently holding them all...
ExifPro requires substantial amounts of memory and CPU processing power. 1 GB of RAM or more is recommended. Display mode with high- or true color is required. Screen resolution of 1024 by 768 or better is required. 1 GHz CPU or better is recommended.
Version 2.0 of ExifPro runs on Windows 7/Vista and XP. Version 1.0 supports all 32-bit Windows, including Windows 98/Me. Both versions work in 64-bit Vista and Windows 7 OS, but only 2.0 as a native 64-bit application.
ExifPro is written in C++ with considerable help from MFC, STL, Boost, and handful of other libraries. Depending on the destination OS setup will install either unicode version (Windows NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7) or ANSI version (Windows 98/Me).
ExifPro has been reviewed by some on-line publications:Personal Computer World, IT Reviews, Soft82, BrotherSoft, Software Informer, FiberDownload, WareSeeker, Software Informer.
In 2000 I bought my first digital camera. Dependable Sony 505V has been serving me for years. Curious about information digicam embedded in each photograph taken, I wrote simple image viewer application. Its purpose was to show detailed list of EXIF information in addition to displaying photographs. This application called Exif (after the info embedded in photos: EXIF) saw the light of a day in the middle of year 2000. I announced it on the dpreview.com Sony forum and today it's used by many users from all over the world. Over the time it gained some simple capabilities that made it a bit more useful, like image resizing, rotating and copying.
Trying to improve on it took much longer than initially anticipated. After years of development efforts I finally decided to publish a sequel to original Exif application. It's fairly clear at that point, that ExifPro will never reach the status of being complete. New features, improvements, fixes and modifications change and reshape it constantly. Nevertheless I believe you will find it useful today, so instead of waiting even longer I'm releasing current version. Please give it a try and let me know about your experience with it.
This work would have never been possible without the support of my wife. ExifPro is dedicated to her.
Thank you for all your love.
