I use imagesnap for a project to capture pictures from my laptop iSight camera. The problem is that imagesnap doesn’t write EXIF data to the captured files.
Phil Harvey wrote command-line application called ExifTool to manipulate files’s meta information.
Pictures from imagesnap are written with the following filename format: 2012-06-06_12-12-00.jpg
I wrote a small shell script to extract time information from the filename and set file’s metadata based on its filename.
