If you are having a problem, please check to see if it has already been fixed in the current version of exiftool.

And when posting a bug report, please provide the following information:

1) Your system type (Windows XP, Linux, Mac, etc), and your shell if using Windows (CMD or PowerShell).

2) The ExifTool version you are using (the output of the "exiftool -ver" command).

3) The specific command line you are using (or a sample script if having problems with the API).

4) The console output from the command.

5) It is often useful to attach a sample image which exhibits the problem.  (Please keep these files small if possible -- I have limited disk space for this forum.)  Some users have reported problems uploading images to the forum.  If necessary, images may be emailed to me directly (philharvey66 at

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux/PowerShell, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).
