Every kind of file is fitted with more details than the preview it provides in the associated editor. Pictures make no exceptions, with quite the variety of details bundled inside, and automatically filled in by cameras. To extract it, specialized applications like EMET reduce the entire effort to a few mouse clicks.
Before the application can perfectly function, or even be installed, you need to make sure that Adobe AIR is on the computer you want to use it on. Other than that, the setup process is clean, letting you check out the set of features in no time at all.
The visual design is clean, clear, letting individuals of all levels of experience get acquainted in the blink of an eye. The list is empty by default, but once you add some pictures, related details like name, size, modified date, Artstor panel, and corruption status are shown. Sadly, you can configure column headers, nor include other EXIF details.
File support isn’t abundant, but you can work with some popular file formats like JPG, JPEG, TIF, and TIFF. These pictures can either imported through the browse dialog, or dropped over the main window for more comfort. Unfortunately, there’s no context menu integration, not even in the Send To menu to select from different location while browsing through your collection.
It’s a good idea to pay a visit to the settings panel before extracting data. Here you find options to change the extraction prefix, error report prefix, and whether or not to generate a report at all. Additionally, you can change the save location of files, which are only of one type, namely CSV.
All things considered, we come to the conclusion that EMET is a straightforward application you can use to grab metadata from your entire picture collection. Although you can’t choose level of details to grab, or other EXIF details, it gets the job done fast, and with little effort.
