#Exif2CSV Exif2CSV will allow you to extract Exif information from multiple images and store it into a CSV file. You will then be able to process data in a database or in tools such as OpenOffice Calc.

##Installation on Windows

  • Download and install RubyInstaller;
  • Download and unzip ExifTool in the directory you'll be calling the script from (or in a directory in your PATH);
  • Rename exiftool(-k).exe to exiftool.exe;
  • Start cmd.exe and execute gem install mini_exiftool. You might have to specify the full path to gem.exe, for instance C:\Ruby186\bin\gem.exe install mini_exiftool.

Generate a CSV file with ./ruby2csv.rb C:/path/to/pictures.

Again, depending on your PATH, you might have to specify the full path to ruby.exe: C:\Ruby186\bin\ruby.exe ruby2csv.rb C:/path/to/pictures.
