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: http://mapivi.de.vu (link to the mapivi site)
or if this won’t work: http://herrmanns-stern.de (real site)
I would be happy to receive some feedback (e.g. on which os mapivi
works), bugfixes, patches or suggestions about mapivi.
