Why this package ?

Tyf package provides pythonic way to work with embeded data in TIFF and JPEG images.


The Tyf Project [WIP]

Read / write EXIF and IFD data

  • read / edit EXIF data from JPEG images
  • read / edit IFD data from TIFF images
  • read / edit GEOTIFF data from IFD
  • read / edit XMP data from IFD
  • work directly with python numbers, string and datetime
  • interpolate map coordinates using GEOTIFF ModelTransformation

Do more with JPEG and TIFF files

  • extract TIFF or JPEG thumbnails from JPEG files
  • strip EXIF data from JPEG File
  • dump EXIF data from JPEG into file
  • dump location thumbnail using any map provider API

>>> jpg = Tyf.open("test/IMG_20150730_210115.jpg")
>>> jpg.__class__

EXIF thumbnail

There are 3 attributes to access data within Tyf.JpegFile :

  • ifd0 containing picture IFD, EXIF and eventually GPS data
  • ifd1 containing thubnail data
  • xmp containing XMP data

ifd0 and ifd1 are shortcut to the first and second IFD in ifd attribute which is itself a Tyf.TiffFile.

>>> jpg.ifd[0] == jpg.ifd0
>>> jpg.ifd[1] == jpg.ifd1
>>> jpg.ifd.__class__
<class 'Tyf.TiffFile'>
>>> jpg.ifd0[256]
>>> jpg.ifd0["ImageWidth"]
>>> jpg.ifd0[256], jpg.ifd0.get("ImageWidth").comment
(2560, 'Number of columns in the image, ie, the number of pixels per row')
>>> jpg.ifd0["GPSLongitude"]
