KimDaBa uses the class KFileMetaInfo from kdenetwork to read the EXIF info out
of the file.
I looked at the keys that it read from the file, and found CreateionDate and
Date/time, but both read in as a null string :-(
I don't know if this is due to the meta info being stored in different
formats. I found a program with my suse system called exif.py, and it prints
out this info on your file:
IFD 0 (Image) at offset 8:
DateTime: (0x0132) ASCII=1999:01:03 12:00:00 @ 26
The curious thing is that it says "Motorola format", as if they had their own
I've got no idea how to read this though.
Can anyone help?
Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
thousands of images?
http://ktown.kde.org/kimdaba might be the answer.
