Projects / MaPiVi


Mapivi is a cross-platform picture manager / organizer, viewer, and batch processor. It is able to display and edit JPEG meta-information, including IPTC/IIM information, EXIF data, and embedded comments. Pictures can be organized by adding them to virtual folders (using hierarchical keywords). It also serves as a frontend for performing lossless rotation, lossless cropping, resizing, and filtering, and can display images as thumbnails. It has a fast and powerful picture search feature that can search in all picture meta-information.
