Exif parsing library written in pure Rust

Exif parsing library written in pure Rust

This is a pure-Rust library to parse Exif data. This library parses Exif attributes in a raw Exif data block. It can also read Exif data directly from some image formats.

Supported formats are:

  • TIFF and some RAW image formats based on it
  • JPEG
  • HEIF and coding-specific variations including HEIC and AVIF
  • PNG
  • WebP


Add a dependency entry to your Cargo.toml. Specify "kamadak-exif" if you use crates.io. The canonical name of this crate is "exif", but it is renamed on crates.io to avoid a naming conflict.

  kamadak-exif = "x.y.z"

Add the following to your crate root (before Rust 2018).

  extern crate exif;

Run "cargo doc" in the source directory to generate the API reference. It is also available online at https://docs.rs/kamadak-exif.

See examples directory for sample codes.
