EXIF/meta-data Linkage

Been sitting on these for a while (sigh).

Why do we care about meta-data (examining and/or purging)?

Well for starters “dere’s gold in dem dere hills!”

“Did you map all of the USB removable storage devices that had been connected to the system?  You don't need to have the management software installed to copy images and videos (hint, hint) off of a phone...just connect it via a USB cable and copy the images (which will likely have some very useful EXIF data available).”

In addition, there are a number of freeware (and $-$$$$) image viewers/tools that also include meta-data handling embedded in them. This post is focused on meta-data specific tools. I’ll post linkage on some of the other applications that are more in this later class soon.
