Welcome to the community, Simon! :grinning_face_with_big_eyes: My gut says that this could probably be done, but it would require some deep integration and/or API work. I went looking for an EXIF API online, and thought I found one at http://www.exif.in/, but the site appears to be down. You could try subscribing to the creator’s update newsletter, though there’s no telling if it’s even in active development.
I agree with @Justin_Barrett that this will require some potentially hefty integration work.
I know Zapier and Integromat used to support a link to a service called CloudConvert, and CloudConvert had an ImageMagick module. I think ImageMagick supports EXIF extraction — but I think CloudConvert only supports a subset of ImageMagick capabilities, so I don’t know if that’s included.¹ Still, it’s a place to start.
If you plan to do much with EXIF massaging, you should also check out Neal Krawetz’s blog. He’s a leading forensic analyst with an emphasis on digital imagery, and he often touches on quirks, caveats, and methods dealing with EXIF data. He just finished a four-part entry on identifying forged EXIF data, and in recent months he’s frequently discussed the limitations of EXIF — which services and applications strip or corrupt EXIF tables, for instance. Be sure to pack a lunch, because it’s an easy place to stay all day.
All these ‘thinks’ and similar weasel words are because the last time I even mentioned CloudConvert in a post was over a year ago — and the last time I actually used ImageMagick was probably 20 years ago. :winking_face: I vaguely remember running some tests where I push data from Airtable into something like CloudConvert/ImageMagick and had [whatever it was I was using] generate a text-only PNG for use in a web page, but by ‘vaguely’ I mean I don’t remember if I ever finished the integration and, if so, if it actually worked…
