Exif library for Android. It's based on the android ExifInterface and on the Jhead c library


Just add this line to your dependency group:

compile 'it.sephiroth.android.exif:library:+'


import it.sephiroth.android.library.exif2.ExifInterface;
import it.sephiroth.android.library.exif2.ExifTag;

ExifInterface exif = new ExifInterface();
exif.readExif( filename, ExifInterface.Options.OPTION_ALL );

// list of all tags found
List<ExifTag> all_tags = exif.getAllTags();

// jpeg quality
int jpeg_quality =  exif.getQualityGuess()

// image size
int[] imagesize = exif.getImageSize();

// process used to create the jpeg file
short process = exif.getJpegProcess();

// gps lat-lon
double[] latlon = exif.getLatLongAsDoubles();

// save
exif.writeExif( src_file, dst_file );
