A chronological documentation test project, nothing serious, really!

20 Apr 2007 Embed exif comment with jhead

Posted by

The jhead program be used to add or modify comments in JPEG image files. However I found using the -ce option to ‘edit comments’ not a good way to do that as it adds an extra newline to the end of the comment.

Here is the better way to add a comment, without adding that extra newline.

    echo -n 'photo of some stuff, by Joe Citizen' |\
       jhead -ci /dev/stdin  image_of_stuff.jpg
