# Can't find EXIF informations in JPG and PNG output files

In a previous comment, ideasman42 explains : stamp options are written into metadata of EXR/JPEG/PNG files.

But I can't find any EXIF information in JPG and PNG files generated by Blender (version 2.78).

Enabling Meta Data in the Render tab does not change anything...

## Edit :

After some investigations, I realized that stamp informations are stored in the image file as JPEG markers and not in EXIF format...

Metadata can be displayed with a JPEG utility like jpeginfo :

$jpeginfo -C untitled.jpg untitled.jpg 960 x 540 24bit JFIF N 13028 "Blender:File:<untitled>" "Blender:Note:dominique Parisot" "Blender:Date:2017/08/17 19:46:52" "Blender:Time:00:00:00:01" "Blender:Frame:001" "Blender:Camera:Camera" "Blender:Scene:Scene" "Blender:RenderTime:00:00.05"  But they can not be found with an EXIF utility like exiv2 : $ exiv2 untitled.jpg
File name       : untitled.jpg
File size       : 13028 Bytes
MIME type       : image/jpeg
Image size      : 960 x 540
untitled.jpg: No Exif data found in the file

• @RayMairlot : thank you for your response. I used exiv2 to verify that blender output files do not contain any EXIF information : \$ exiv2 untitled.jpg File name : untitled.jpg File size : 20692 Bytes MIME type : image/jpeg Image size : 960 x 540 untitled.jpg: No Exif data found in the file – Dominique Parisot Aug 1 '17 at 18:04
