i'm using gene cash's EXIF.py module to find out the shoting time of an jpeg
this module works usually like a beauty, but some images raise an exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/Users/Shared/bin/exiftool.py", line 148, in ?
File "/Users/Shared/lib/python/EXIF.py", line 1032, in process_file
File "/Users/Shared/lib/python/EXIF.py", line 925, in decode_maker_note
File "/Users/Shared/lib/python/EXIF.py", line 762, in dump_IFD
raise ValueError, \
ValueError: unknown type 768 in tag 0x0100
this means that for thse images no exif data at all is usable, even though
only on tag couldn't be read. :-(
all this trouble causing images are rotated by an other appliaction (iPhoto
on OS X).
does anybody knows a workaround with this module or even a solution with
another/improved exif reader?
thanks a lot, leo
