exif-reader

A small EXIF image metadata reader.

Usage

npm install exif-reader
var exif = require('exif-reader');

// decode raw exif data from a buffer
var metadata = exif(buf);

Support is also built into jpg-stream for extracting EXIF data from JPEGs using this module.

Resulting properties are grouped as follows:

  • bigEndian: determines the endianness of the buffers (in case of non-ascii data)
  • Image: basic TIFF properties about the image
  • Thumbnail: basic TIFF properties about the embedded thumbnail
  • Photo: full exif data
  • GPSInfo: GPS/location data about the image
  • Iop: interoperability information

Not all of these properties will always be defined.

All standard Exif tags are supported.

Here is some example output:
