Copy Metadata

Preserving relevant metadata, such as date and time information or camera settings, can be a problem when you convert images from one format to another. reaConverter offers a simple solution for this problem. With its clear and intuitive interface, this software helps you copy EXIF or IPTC information from the input to the output images during conversion.

EXIF or Exchangeable Image File Format data represents a series of characteristics related to when and how a photograph was taken, which are embedded in the image file. Such characteristics include the date and time when the photo was shot, the camera settings (aperture, shutter speed, focal length etc.), the type of camera and the type of lens used, copyright information and many others.

IPTC is another type of metadata stored according to a standard established by the International Press Telecommunications Council. While initially addressed mostly to journalists who need to attach textual information to their photographs, the IPTC storing method is now widely used by photographers to store information related to the location or the keywords that describe a certain photo.

Both EXIF and IPTC metadata can be successfully transferred when you do batch conversion of image files with reaConverter. It only takes a few clicks.
