“Great project!!! Waiting for the iOS version.”

-- rb__

“The app does what it's says. Very helpful to modify/erase metadata.”

-- Wenni18

“Excellent tool to insert metadata in speed and with many valid options available, both IPTC and EXIF. Excellent support for the many fields of the IPTC standard.”

-- M. Baroncini

“If you're looking for a metadata editor, I don't think you will find one more comprehensive than this. I've been using it to tag and geolocate scanned negatives prior to importing them into the Photos app. So far I've done about 500, and it's been a very slick process.”

-- steve-p-com

“Very happy. A fully complete matadata tool for images. Buy it - save the pain”

-- Bubba Geek

“I don’t know what happened to my first rating left here but I’ll try to repeat what I said before…this app is fantastic and the developer is very responsive. The app features a built-in feedback email tool that enables the developer to react quickly.”

MetaImage supports a large number of metadata : EXIF, IPTC, TIFF as well as Maker notes. You can contact us for more information or if the metadata you need are not supported yet. The maker notes cannot be created and deleted. However, they can be edited. This limitation avoids many potential problems including the compatibility with OEM software.

Metadata Description
EXIF EXIF stands for "Exchangeable Image File Format". This type of information is formatted according to the TIFF specification, and may be found in JPG, TIFF, PNG, JP2, PGF, MIFF, HDP, PSP and XCF images, as well as many TIFF-based RAW images, and even some AVI and MOV videos.
IPTC The IPTC tags are part of the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) and the Newspaper Association of America (NAA) Information Interchange Model (IIM). IPTC information may be found in JPG, TIFF, PNG, MIFF, PS, PDF, PSD, XCF and DNG images.

Apple decided to not allow the edition of metadata from a Photos extension. (This limitation has no reason and is only for macOS and not for iOS).

In order to circumvent the problem, we have designed an alternative way to do it. You can open a copy of the original image directly from the extension to MetaImage. You can then edit the metadata of the copy in the application. To finish, you only have to click on one button to import in Photos.app.
