Adding EXIF to ancient images without them (JFIF)

Post by allenhuffman » Sun Mar 17, 2019 3:02 pm

I have thousands of photos taken with my original 1996 Epson PhotoPC camera. They used JFIF for the internal datecode which, thanks to Lemkesoft, GraphicCovnerter was updated to read. Some of my research from past days:

I had previously tried to embed EXIF data in these files, but it wouldn’t work. I assume (?) it is because the file does not have any place to embed.

Is it possible to add EXIF to JPGs that never had an EXIF header inside of them?

the JFIF tag contains normally only the resolution and a thumbnail.

Please e-mail two sample files zipped to for testing.

GraphicConverter can add i.e an Exif record to a JPEG.
