FastPhotoTagger tries to be the fastest way to set the metadata in your photos. Add, change, delete, and search the metadata fields of your choice. FastPhotoTagger excels when you have lots of files and lots of metadata.

With FastPhotoTagger, you can
- Set multiple images to have the same tag values
- Set individual images to have unique tag values
- Display all the metadata in an image
- Compare and edit all the metadata in several images
- Choose the metadata fields to work with: EXIF, XMP, IPTC, etc.
- Define abbreviations for frequently used tag values
- View images and slideshows that display tag values as captions
- Create and search a metadata database

FastPhotoTagger has versions for PC and Android.

FastPhotoTagger uses ExifTool to read & write metadata, HyperSQL to manage its database, and dcraw to display DNG & RAW images.

    This Tool is absolutely great! I can subscribe to the comments of canyon666 and thivi54. Unlike other MetaData editing software and databases FastPhotoTagger leaves your files where they are resp. where you want them to be on your hard disk. Nonetheless you can search your files by sophisticated combined search and filter queries. And it is quick! Thank you for this peace of software! For those who are interested: I opened two Posts in the WordPress support forum, in wich I describe how I use FastPhotoTagger in combination with two plugins. Just enter "How to use exif_read_data and ALL_IPTC" and "Watermarking deletes EXIF, IPTC and XMP MetaData" as search string in the support forum.

    This is an excellent application. I've played with lots of other metadata tagging applications and they all disappointed me as they do not let me put my metadata where I want to. FastPhotoTagger is the first one I've found that lets me manage my metadata as I want. The fact that it is a GUI for exiftool means that it inherently handles metadata reliably and 'correctly'. The combination of ease of use and configurability make it a 'killer app' for anyone like me who wants to add metadata to their photos without having to constantly wrestle with exiftool.
