Feature Request: EXIF information for pictures
It would be VERY NICE if motion could create EXIF metadata for the pictures. Stating the event number, time, changed pixels.. or etc.. A even more neat idea is to be able to modify what kind of data goes into the EXIF file portion using the same TextString
macros that are used for the filename argumentss.

I think that feature was already sent ... i'm not sure but i guess it was accepted, but with low priority.

I agree. Searching for EXIF on here only turns up this page though.

Maybe you can use a command line tool to add this information. There exists some of them, one is as http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
You can run the tool at on_picture_save command to add the desired information.

I wanted this feature also, so I implemented it in my copy: it adds a timestamp and a comment string (which can contain motion %foo substitutions) to each saved jpeg. I will probably upload a patch soon.

I have uploaded ExifTaggingPatch
which adds this capability.
