Write Custom Tags by the ExifTool


Hello,
the ExifTool doesn't write custom tags by default. Here is a short guide line and an example how to do it.
Attached File  Write Custom Tags created in Daminion with the ExifTool.pdf (1.24MB)
Number of downloads: 47
Don't hesitate to send comments etc.
Thanks to Juha who made a first review of the document.
Regards, Uwe

Hi

Couple of fast comments.

As Uwe wrote, you need the configuration file if you want to write custom tags with ExifTool. If you just want to read your custom tags, you don't need to do anything.

I would slightly modify your definition of filemodificationdatetime to (and this is now splitting hairs :wink: )
filemodificationdatetime => { Writable => 'date', Groups => { 2 => 'Time' } },

If you want to sort your output based on the categories (ExifTool -G2), filemodificationdatetime will now appear together with other Time tags.
