How can I change the metadata for several images at the same time (batch edit)? For example, comments and titles.

  • You have not made it clear, are you referring to Pantheon Photos, or are you looking for another application to do this?

There are two good tools to edit meta-data of image-files:

exiftool and exiv2


You will find exif here: official site

It also has a graphical frontend: frontend for exif


This is a better tool than exiftool. You can find it here: official site.
Here is a man page on how to use this: exiv2 man page


You can try installing gThumb Image Viewer, by typing on the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gthumb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gthumb
