Exif.js – JavaScript library for reading EXIF image metadata


Following up on yesterdays “Read EXIF thumbnail from JPG image using JavaScript” I stumbled upon Exif.js, a library which reads EXIF meta data – and not just the thumbnail – from JPEG images.

Usage is simple:

EXIF.getData(imageElement, function() {

It’s also possible to get single values:

EXIF.getData(imageElement, function() {
    var make = EXIF.getTag(this, "Make"),
        model = EXIF.getTag(this, "Model");
    alert("I was taken by a " + make + " " + model);
