tinyxmp is a pure Python module for reading and writing metadata as raw XMP packets. It is designed to have very few external dependencies making it easily portable across platforms, server installations, etc.
import tinyxmp x = tinyxmp.Metadata.load("webcam.png") x.get_xmp() x.write_xmp(xml_string)
- JPEG (JFIF)
Known limitations and TODOs
Extended XMP packets in JPEG are not supported. Trying to write an XMP packet longer than 65502 bytes will result in exception.
Files are not locked while writing metadata.
