GUI doesn’t need to be “installed”. So, if you didn’t already, just create new directory on C drive i. GUI doesn’t write anything into registry file or elsewhere. These two files are needed only: for JPG lossless rotation purpose see Various menu in case rotation is needed when embedding JPG image into raw image file. If you think you might need this GUI feature, then copy both files into Windows directory -otherwise, both files can be deleted. Wish to see thumbnails of raw image files?
Of course you do. What you need is a “raw codec”, usually available for free from camera manufacturer. The best I’ve found so far is “FastPictureViewer codec” from here. That’s all you need. And when new ExifTool or GUI version is available, you only need to repeat process as described above. Preferences General settings tab Metadata language Here you can choose the language for displaying metadata tag names and values in Metadata panel.
Selected language is also used when working in ExifTool direct mode output to Log window , or when exporting metadata to external TXT files. If checked, GUI will only rotate image in Preview panel -thumbnails aren’t rotated. If you’re using some recent version of “FastPictureViewer” codec, then you should not check this option because that codec is capable to deliver properly rotated JPG images.
Enabling internet access By default, this option is unchecked and if you are a bit paranoid, then keep it that way. In this case however, you won’t be able to use GUI’s GoogleMap feature for geotagging your images manually. After changing this option, you’ll need to close and reopen GUI, to make this feature available. Separator character Some metadata tags i. Keep in mind, that this character isn’t stored into metadata!
Save Filelist Details state on exit If checked, then Details: button state and selected Filelist view Standard filelist, Camera settings,.. Selected Thumbnails size is always saved. Workspace manager Here you define what will be shown in Metadata panel when Workspace is selected. Tag name column Here you define tag name you prefer to be displayed for particular metadata tag. These tag names don’t have any influence on actual tag names and you can write anything here, i.
Tag names written here, can have different “behaviour” in case special character is used for their ending. For now, GUI uses following ending characters: -if tag name ends with this character see Flash and Orientation above , then content of this tag will be displayed as usual.
However, when modifying this tag, you need to enter numerical value. In this case, if you right-click on Metadata panel when in Workspace view mode , pop-up menu appears and there’s option Fill in default values -you get the idea, I hope. Note: You won’t be able to edit such tag in Workspace view.
Note: I might use further special ending characters in future, so try to avoid their usage at the end or start of tag names. Tag definition column Here you define tags as recognized by ExifTool.
And if needed, you can also add character at the end of tag name -this will force displaying numerical tag value try with -exif:Orientation to see the difference. Of course, only single tag can be defined per line. Hint text column Text entered here is your short “private” help, which will be displayed in GUI’s status bar when you start modifying tag value: I hope you can recognize the power of Workspace manager : YOU define any metadata tag you wish to change regulary.
For whatever reason, you might wish to save your current Workspace content -to create a backup of your Workspace, so to speak. And when needed, you just load previously saved Workspace definition file again. When you choose Save , you’ll be asked where to save the file and you’ll need to set the filename.
However, if you’re not sure what you’re doing, then you better uncheck this option. Preserve Date modified of files -no matter what I think about this, some prefer having this option checked. Ignore minor errors in metadata -by default, this option is unchecked.
That is, ExifTool will refuse to write into file in case metadata is not in “perfect” condition, or if there’s a danger that you might lose some metadata by modifying it.
If this option is checked and metadata only contain “minor” errors or only “minor” damage can occur , then ExifTool will do his job anyway. Show Exif:GPS in decimal notation -checked by default because i.
GoogleMap uses this notation as well. Show sorted tags not in Workspace -if this option is unchecked default , then metadata tags are shown sorted as defined internally in metadata.

August 20, , AM. This will have to suffice for now. September 22, , AM. Same problem here. Last time it worked, now I have updated to exiftool But I don’t think its an exiftool-problem. My problem is, that I can’t start on the path-window with the root-directory.
It starts at desktop. October 23, , AM. Finally I got sick of niggling problems with my laptop, clearly the Win 10 upgrade over Win 8. So I downloaded full Win 10 upgrade, formatted the Windows partition, and installed Win That has sorted out the issue.
