Examples

The following example demonstrates how to write metadata to a Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) image by using the IFD and Exif schemas.

BitmapMetadata tiffMetadata = new BitmapMetadata("tiff");
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/{ushort=1000}", 9999);
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/{uint=1001}", 23456);
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/{uint=1002}", 34567);
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/PaddingSchema:padding", (UInt32)4096);
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/exif", new BitmapMetadata("exif"));
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/exif/PaddingSchema:padding", (UInt32)4096);
Dim tiffMetadata As New BitmapMetadata("tiff")
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/{ushort=1000}", 9999)
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/{uint=1001}", 23456)
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/{uint=1002}", 34567)
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/PaddingSchema:padding", CType(4096, UInt32))
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/exif", New BitmapMetadata("exif"))
tiffMetadata.SetQuery("/ifd/exif/PaddingSchema:padding", CType(4096, UInt32))

Remarks

Metadata that is associated with an image is data that describes the image but is not necessary to display the image. Each supported bitmap image format handles metadata differently, but the facility for reading and writing metadata is the same.

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) supports the following image metadata schemas: Exchangeable image file (Exif), tEXt (PNG Textual Data), image file directory (IFD), International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC), and Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP).

If a BitmapMetadata is exposed by a BitmapFrame that is obtained by using a BitmapDecoder, it is read-only by default and mutable operations will throw an exception. If it is exposed by a BitmapFrame that wraps another BitmapSource, it is mutable on construction.

The SetQuery and GetQuery methods can be used to construct and read metadata queries.
