Regular readers of my musings on Mac360 and my website, Bohemian Boomer, know that I have a collection of Mac text editor apps. Why? I like to edit. Why so many editors? Different strokes for different folks.
Last week I came across another Mac app that edits, but in this case it edits photos on your Mac. No, it’s not a photo editor. There are hundreds of those. The app is called MetaImage and it edits the metadata and geo-tags on your photos.
Most Mac users just use Photos to manage photos. OK. Fair enough. Photos is fast and easy to use. It has a few filters and, frankly, Photos is a decent way to manage photos and albums on your Mac but that’s about all it does.
MetaImage is about editing the metadata each photo collects when you take a photo (and mostly, regardless of which camera you use, but the data collected varies by camera). That metadata is embedded into the photo file. Most people who take photos– camera or smartphone– don’t know what’s there, but what’s there can be surprising (which might make you think twice about posting photos online– sometimes all that data goes along for the ride).
