Tag names containing spaces
« on: July 12, 2011, 05:47:53 AM »
Hello

Can I use exiftool to modify/delete tags, whose tag names contain spaces?

exiftool -TagName=NewTagValue

but what if the existing tag name is instead "Tag Name" (i.e. with spaces) instead of "TagName"?

Thank you,
James

Hi James,

ExifTool tag names do not contain spaces.

I think that reading FAQ number 2 will help you.
