Bash Script To Produce Exif Files From Batch of JPGs
Here's how to produce an exif text (or xml) file for each corresponding jpeg image in a directory of jpgs. You will end up with:
image1.exif image1.jpg image2.exif image2.jpg image3.exif image3.jpg
I needed to do this when I was editing certain photography web pages. I'm sure there's an easier way to do this with one command line using find and xargs, but this does the trick for me. You will need to have installed the exif module on your linux box for this to work.
#!/bin/bash for filename in *.jpg do exif $filename > $filename.exif done; for i in *.jpg.exif do j=`echo $i | sed 's#.jpg.exif#.exif#g' - ` mv $i $j done
To produce xml files instead, add a -x after the exif command and change .exif to .xml accordingly.
