photo metadata

Filed under: photography

Learned that you can edit music metadata from the commandline. On OSX, you can use the xattr command (xattr man pages). Here’s an example of how the command looks like:

xattr -l file.mp3

I wanted to change the cover art and couldn’t figure out what the metadata location was for mp3 files on mac. So I ended up using an application called Tagger


There’s another command you can use, mdls, which will list all the file’s metadata (mdls man pages).
