Bug#312490: ITP: exiv2 -- EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation library and tools

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: KELEMEN Peter <fuji@debian.org>

* Package name    : exiv2
  Version         : 0.6.2
  Upstream Author : Andreas HUGGEL <ahuggel@gmx.net>
* URL             : http://home.arcor.de/ahuggel/exiv2/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : EXIF/IPTC metadata manipulation library and tools

Exiv2 comprises of a C++ library and a command line utility to access image

The Exiv2 library provides:
  * full read and write access to the EXIF and IPTC metadata of an image
    through Exiv2 keys and standard C++ iterators
  * a smart IPTC implementation that does not affect data that programs like
    Photoshop store in the same image segment
  * EXIF MakerNote support:
    o MakerNote tags can be accessed just like any other EXIF metadata
    o a sophisticated write algorithm avoids corrupting the MakerNote:
  * extract and delete methods for EXIF thumbnails (both, JPEG and Tiff
  * set methods for EXIF thumbnails (JPEG only, Tiff thumbnails can be set from
    individual tags)
  * complete API documentation (by Doxygen)
  * generic lower-level classes to access IFD (Image File Directory) data
Exiv2 is also a command line utility to:
  * print the EXIF metadata of JPEG images as summary info, interpreted values,
    or the plain data for each tag (here is a sample)
  * print the IPTC metadata of JPEG images
  * print the JPEG comment of JPEG images
  * set, add and delete EXIF and IPTC metadata of JPEG images
  * adjust the EXIF timestamp (that's how it all started...)
  * rename EXIF image files according to the EXIF timestamp
  * extract EXIF metadata, IPTC metadata and JPEG comments from image files and
    insert it again
  * extract the thumbnail image embedded in the EXIF metadata
  * delete the thumbnail or the complete EXIF metadata from an image
