General :: Stripping EXIF Metadata + Preserving Of The Original Date

Feb 23, 2011

I would like to remove almost all of the Privacy Evading data that a digital camera is generating, such as EXIF DATA. EXIF DATA: Camera Brand, Camera Model, Date taken, Exposure Time, Flash Fired, Focal Length, Location (if you are using iPhone with categorization by location, if enabled), Metering Mode, etc.

May you, please, write a script which does that job for multiple files?Exiv2 seem to reduce more weight than Jhead so I'll use the command exiv2.That's, generally, what I want the script to do:Retrieve the (Modified) date of a file.

General :: Sort And Rename Images By Date In EXIF Info?

Oct 31, 2010

I have a mess in my photos folder; I want to sort them according to date in EXIF information and rename according to the date (like 001.jpg, 002.jpg and so on).

How can I do this in Linux? I have used ImageMagick for some basic bulk processing tasks before (converting and resizing, etc), is it possible to use it for this task?

Programming :: Searching Recursively By Exif Date?

Feb 20, 2010

I have searched diligently but can't seem to find a way to search by exif date. Most of my searches turned up commands to manipulate EXIF data not just search by it. I have found some likely tools but suspect that I don't know enough bash to recursively find a .jpg file by it's exif date. For example, exiprobe and exifgrep look promising (see examples below).

I have made some progress. At first, I couldn't associate the file name with the date given but learned that the "n" option forces each output line to start with the file name. Now, I need to make the command recurse but can't seem to manage it.
halloween_IMG_0965.JPG: JPEG.APP1.Ifd0.Exif.DateTimeOriginal = '2009:10:31 20:58:52
If it helps, I have linked to the man pages [URL]

Ubuntu :: Image Viewer Sort By Exif Date Taken

Jan 31, 2011

I've tried what feels like at least a dozen different image viewers and I'm still hunting for one that handles viewing by date taken. The trick is that I'd like to just click the jpeg as they come off the camera and then browse through all the photos in the order taken... without having to load them into a photo management application, sort them in their, then start viewing from there. Too many extra steps for too many pictures when you're looking at a collection that is already organized (using the file system, i.e., nested directories) back to 2000. I need (ideally) a viewer where I click the jpeg, then go next next next through them in the order in which they were taken. Does anyone know if this sort of thing exists?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rename All JPEGs In A Folder By EXIF Date & Time Stamp?

Feb 24, 2011

In the Windows world where I came from, Irfanview freeware easily renamed a large folder of JPEG photos by EXIF time & date stamps, appending a unique number if the time and date stamps were the same. Is there an equivalent rename-by-EXIF information batch command in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid? For example, change (based solely on EXIF information): FROM:DSC_0001.JPG TO:20110224_09:34:56am.JPG

Programming :: Keep Original Mod Date Of A File And 'date' It Back To Same File?

Jul 12, 2010

I would really like to preserve a file's original modified date and pass it back to the file as the same attribute after a script has worked on it. I get a lot of JPEG files from different places on the Net which I either turn around and upload or burn to disk, and having the "original" date of either download or last mod in a graphics app would be for me, in the long run, a lot more helpful when deciding, for instance, which files to "recycle" or pass on backing up more than once.I've tried doing this on my own every now and then. Where I run into problems is that it appears "stat" and "date" use different formats for date information, and I can't seem to puzzle out how to "translate" one to the other satisfactorily for the latter command.

Just to give an example:
stat foo.jpg |grep Modify gives me
Modify: 2010-07-12 06:28:56.890625000 -0400

Passing that string as-is to date foo.jpg, I get the errordate: unknown option -- 0 and the usual semi-courteous suggestion to Try 'date --help' for more information.Somehow my TexInfo database got screwed up somewhere along the line and info dategives me the short article on date input formats, not the full documentation for the command

General :: Use Date With Touch To Create New File With Date Based Name?

Mar 12, 2010

I am using CRON to create a new, blank file, every minute, in a specific location on my web server. After web searching, and reading man pages, I get the impression that the following command is supposed to work:touch /home/mydomain/var/folder/attachments/`date +%H%M`.txtThis should give me a new file with a file name that is the current hour and minute.However, when executed, the CRON mailer reports:touch /home/mydomain/var/folder/attachments/`date +/bin/sh: -c: line 0: unexpected EOF while looking for matching /bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error: unexpected end of fileSo, it looks like shell is seeing the plus (+) sign as an EOFObviously, nothing get created.What would be the easiest, single line command to create an empty file, at a given location, with a time based file name

General :: Copying Jpegs Recursively While Preserving The Directory Structure?

Aug 9, 2010

So I have a bunch of directories:


which themselves all contain subdirectories:

dir1subdir1subdir2etc.and at the lowest level they contain all of these jpegs that I need. The problem is that I only need some of them. They're named like this:


I want to just grab the ones without the size suffix and copy them all to another set of folders, while preserving the directory structure. The numbering all starts at 1 for each low level subdirectory, so I think that the directory structure is the only way to not get them mixed up.

I know that cp has a recursive option -r but how do I just extract the ones without the underscore? And then how do I preserve the directory structure when I move them over?

# cp folder*/* bigfolder

I used cp in case it went wrong, it worked so I deleted the previous dir's.
