LibRaw is a library for reading RAW files obtained from digital photo cameras (CRW/CR2, NEF, RAF, DNG, and others). LibRaw is based on the source codes of the dcraw utility, though some of the drawbacks of dcraw have been eliminated. The users of the library are provided with an API to be used when writing their software programs.
Exiv2 is a C++ library and a command line utility for managing image metadata. It provides fast and easy read and write access to the Exif, IPTC, and XMP metadata of images in many formats. The Exiv2 command line utility prints Exif, IPTC, and XMP metadata including Makernote tags in various formats, adjusts Exif timestamps, renames images according to the Exif timestamp, extracts and inserts Exif, IPTC, and XMP metadata and JPEG comments, or deletes the thumbnail or a specific type of metadata from an image.
Bibble is a professional image-manipulation application for processing of raw photos from digital cameras. It provides a fast and high quality raw workflow. It features a fully integrated browser, user configurable tools/views, powerful batch processing, raw optimized printing, a flexible renaming system, advanced settings for copy and paste, IPTC meta-data support, and tethered shooting.
DVD-Baker generates a DVD consisting of menus and slideshows from a picture collection stored in a Menalto Gallery G2 Web site or in a locally stored directory tree. Each "leaf" album (an album that does not contain sub-albums) is used to create a slideshow. The slideshows (and any DVD-ready MPEG videos) are made accessible on the DVD with menus that follow the structure of the Web site or directories. Extra features include random or sequential autoplay, and audio support. Since dvd-slideshow is used to produce each slideshow, it supports effects such as crossfades, crops, and 'Ken Burns' effects.
Morena is a Java framework that allows a Java program to acquire an image from a scanner or camera. To communicate with the hardware, it uses standard interfaces: Twain for MS Windows and Mac OS X and Sane for a number of Unix platforms (AIX, BeOS, Darwin, FreeBSD, HP-UX, Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS2, Solaris, Unixware).
Gallery Mage is a client side photo gallery management system designed to work with online gallery display scripts such as SPGM. Using Gallery Mage, one can select, caption, rotate, crop, resize, and upload photos taken with a digital camera to an online photo gallery. The rotate, crop, and resize parameters are stored as text data with the images, and the operations are only performed on a copy of the photo while exporting, thus preserving the original picture files. Gallery Mage provides abstraction from the online display software.
JCap is a Java application for adding captions and descriptions to your digital photograph collection and includes a search dialog for finding photos later. It is completely self-contained; it doesn't require a separate database application or Web server to run. Captions, descriptions, and keywords are stored in plain text files in the same folder as the images they describe and can be read by any application that can read text files. The primary goals are: to help you find photos later, to help share photos with others, and to be able to read photo captions and descriptions thirty years from now on whatever computer you happen to have at the time.
ExifTool is a platform-independent Perl library plus a command line application for reading, writing, and editing meta-information in image, audio, and video files. It supports many different types of metadata including EXIF, GPS, IPTC, XMP, JFIF, GeoTIFF, ICC Profile, Photoshop IRB, FlashPix, AFCP, and ID3, as well as the maker notes of many digital cameras.
