PHP Exif Library. A library for reading and writing Exif headers in JPEG and TIFF images using PHP
PEL is up for adoption, as I am not using it on any of the sites I build. Take part in this issue, if you want to give PEL new life.

The PHP Exif Library (PEL) lets you fully manipulate Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format) data. This is the data that digital cameras place in their images, such as the date and time, shutter speed, ISO value and so on. Using PEL, one can fully modify the Exif data, meaning that it can be both read and written. Completely new Exif data can also be added to images. PEL is written completely in PHP and depends on nothing except a standard installation of PHP, version 5.



You can install PEL as a pear package using the following code:

    pear channel-discover
    pear install pearhub/PEL
