Read EXIF information from JPEG and TIFF image files


output = exifread(filename)

    Note:   exifread has been removed. Use imfinfo instead.


output = exifread(filename) reads the Exchangeable Image File Format (EXIF) data from the file specified by the string filename. filename must specify a JPEG or TIFF image file. output is a structure containing metadata values about the image or images in imagefile.

    Note   exifread returns all EXIF tags and does not process them in any way.

EXIF is a standard used by digital camera manufacturers to store information in the image file, such as, the make and model of a camera, the time the picture was taken and digitized, the resolution of the image, exposure time, and focal length.
