MetaImage is the ultimate Mac tool to read, write and edit images metadata. It is the first editor that allows you to edit EXIF, IPTC, XMP and Maker tags in a familiar interface.
The app is compatible with hundreds of image formats.
The app is compatible with hundreds of metadata tags.
The app allows you to create and use presets to make edits faster.
The app allows you to edit multiple files at the same time.
This is the metadata editor that supports the largest number of tags. In addition, you can choose which tags are displayed in the app. So you can keep only the one you use.
We designed an interface to edit GPS metadata easily. You can directly enter GPS coordinates. In addition you can also search for an address by typing it or by clicking on the map.
All your recurring editions can be applied in one click. We know that most of your editions will be the same. That's why you can create, manage and apply presets.
The application includes an extension for Photos. You will be able to inspect the information of your favorite shoots directly in your favorite app.
“Great project!!! Waiting for the iOS version.”
“The app does what it's says. Very helpful to modify/erase metadata.”
“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.”
“Very happy. A fully complete matadata tool for images. Buy it - save the pain”
“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.”

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.
