Overview

The CExifRead Interface class is used for parsing the Exif v2.2 file format. With this API you can read data from JPEG images, such as date, resolution, orientation, ISO speed, and exposure time.

MMP file

The following capabilities and libraries are required:

CAPABILITY NONE
LIBRARY efsrv.lib
LIBRARY exiflib.lib

Header file

Class for reading Exif data.

{
public:
static CMyExifReader* NewL();

void ConstructL();
public:

public:
HBufC8* iImageDescription;
HBufC8* iImageDate;
 
};
