Free Microsoft Photo Info

Microsoft have released their free Microsoft Photo Info tool, which allows Windows XP and Vista users to add, change and delete common "metadata" properties for digital photographs from inside Windows Explorer.

When installed, a new "Photo Info" item appears on the context menu for files selected in Windows Explorer. To use, simply select one or more image fiiles, right-click and choose "Photo Info" to open the Photo Info properties editor. You can edit metadata for files individually, or all together as a batch. Photo Info reads and writes metadata in IPTC and XMP formats (depending on file type). It also provides enhanced "hover tips" and additional sort properties for digital photographs in Windows Explorer.

It supports JPEG, TIFF, WDP, HDP, NEF, CR2, and CRW files and displays file type, image size, ISO, white balance information, etc. You can add keywords, descriptions, and copyright information to photos directly in Explorer. You can also edit the EXIF data such as date and time information and you can also edit images in batch mode.
