Hi,

If a tag is not already set you can create it with pyexiv2.

Example:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
self.data = pyexiv2.ImageMetadata(img.jpg)
self.data.read()

tag = "Exif.Image.ImageWidth"
try:
    self.data[tag].value = sizes[0]
except:
    self.data[tag] = pyexiv2.ExifTag(tag, sizes[0])
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
