EXIF data for fim photo - best way to add? #1

Hi - - I shoot a fair amount of film, which I then scan.

Do you know of a good way to make pseudo-exif data for film-based photos? Like your tip #4, I have been jamming a bunch of information into the file names (though using something called filewrangler…). It is okay but not really all that practical because (1) I would like to save this into the metadata rather than a file name and (2) I would like to capture image-specific info like the lens, filter, and exposure settings.

Thanks very much!

Hi, have a look at AnalogExif ( as well which is free. Works for me – chokes on RAW-files often (when I want to put in lens-data for my non-digital lenses I use on my D70s…)

You need an EXIF editor. You can’t do this in Aperture, but you can edit the EXIF before importing, and Aperture will read all that data.

I don’t have first-hand experience with any, but looking through the Mac App Store, this one has good ratings and is only $9.99: ExifChanger - Marc Rochkind.

Great - Looks like that will do the trick, and/or a different app by the same developer: Ingstamatic. Will explore both.

Thank you
