How can I access metadata in JPEG images using Symbian C++
JPEG (or other formats, such as GIF and PNG) images can contain metadata information. This solution describes how to access metadata from the code.
In S60 1st Edition, there is no interface that could be used to obtain the metadata of the image.
In S60 2nd Edition, the text comments added as metadata can be obtained with the CImageDecoder's ImageCommentL method.
Example code for S60 2nd Edition:
HBufC* CImageHandler::GetMetaDataL(RFs& aFs, const TFileName& aFileName, TInt aIndex)
CImageDecoder* decoder =
HBufC* metaData = NULL;
if (aIndex >= 0 && aIndex < decoder->NumberOfImageComments())
metaData = decoder->ImageCommentL(aIndex);
CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(); // decoder
