Future-proof Tagging

Tags are written directly to the photo or its sidecar (and not a proprietary database) so that your annotations stay with the photo forever. After annotating with PhotoLinker, upload your photos to popular websites.

MWG Compliance

Metadata Working Group [metadataworkinggroup.org] (MWG) compliance ensures that your annotations are read from and written to your photos using new industry standards.


PhotoLinker supports roughly 100 industry standard tags including the most popular like title, description, people, and keywords.

Customizable Metadata Editor

PhotoLinker lets you customize the metadata editor to show exactly the tags you want. You can regroup, reorder, and rename tags to streamline your workflow.

Open Source Transparency

Tags are read and written with the open source tool ExifTool [sno.phy.queensu.ca]. PhotoLinker shows you exactly how the tags will be changed so that you can track exactly how your photos' metadata will be modified. More...

Date Shifting

Incorrect time on your camera? PhotoLinker makes it easy to correct all the times on your photos.

Advanced Date Tools

Add dates to scanned to photos or copy dates between tags. PhotoLinker will even help you automatically set the Finder's file creation date to the date the photo was taken.

Robust Photo Support

PhotoLinker can read and write jpeg images, as well as most RAW file formats. In addition, PhotoLinker has complete support for XMP sidecar files.

Explore your Tracks
