I have

Export["file.png",codeThatMakesAGraphicsObject[],"PNG"];

and want to embed some specific metadata information. Is there a simple way to do that?


Note that this code already (automatically, apparently) includes metadata information for "Horizontal resolution", "Vertical resolution", "Software used", and "Date and time of digitizing", and I don't want to disturb that with any fields I add.

  • $\begingroup$ @rm-rf: Good point. Editing to change "EXIF" to "metadata". $\endgroup$
