       MaPiVi - Picture Viewer and Organizer
                MaPiVi means Martin’s Picture Viewer


       JPEG picture viewer / image management system with meta info support
       written in Perl/Tk for UNIX, Mac OS X and Windows.

       I wrote mapivi just for me, because I needed a image viewer which is
       also able to display and edit meta infos of JPEG pictures, like EXIF,
       JPEG comments and IPTC/IIM infos.  As hobby photographer I am mostly
       interested in the EXIF infos (like timestamp, camera model, focal
       length, exposure time, aperture, etc.) and the possibility to add and
       edit IPTC infos and JPEG comments.  But I also want to rename pictures
       according to their internal date/time and to do lossless rotation,
       lossless cropping and other stuff.

       mapivi can be found here: (link to the mapivi site)
       or if this won’t work: (real site) (download)

       I would be happy to receive some feedback (e.g. on which os mapivi
       works), bugfixes, patches or suggestions about mapivi.
