Graphie is a photo application for Android that specifically allows you to view and edit the metadata of your photos. It is useful to see some technical information but also the geolocation of your pictures and many other things.
Why is the free Graphie app worth it?
Personally, I sometimes get confused in my photo gallery when I test a smartphone. Was this night photo taken with or without night mode? But even outside of work, I sometimes wonder when and where I took this great photo.
With Graphie, you can view the EXIF information of your photos. These EXIF data or EXchangeable Image FIle is a set of information linked to each photo and presented in a standardized format. This data is automatically generated by the photo application on your smartphone (or camera) when the picture is taken. It is then stored in the image file for JPG, TIFF and RAW formats.
Graphics allows you to easily edit the most popular EXIF tags of all images manually (entering data for changes each time) or using pre-collected settings. You can accurately see aperture, ISO level, focal length etc … The app also offers the ability to extract the dominant colors from a shot and find the location from which it was captured .
The app is oddly rated only 3 out of 5 stars on the Play Store from 66 reviews, but it has only been downloaded over 1000 times which may explain this. Some of the more negative reviews include the fact that the app does not always recognize all photos on some smartphones or that it does not always consider photos from external storage (microSD).
