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.

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.

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.
