MPF Tags

These tags are part of the CIPA Multi-Picture Format specification, and are found in the APP2 "MPF" segment of JPEG images. MPImage data referenced from this segment is stored as a JPEG trailer. The MPF tags are not writable, however the MPG segment may be deleted as a group (with "MPF:All") but then the JPEG trailer should also be deleted (with "Trailer:All"). See for the official specification.

MPF MPImage Tags

The first MPF "Large Thumbnail" image is extracted as PreviewImage, and the rest of the embedded MPF images are extracted as MPImage#. The ExtractEmbedded (-ee) option may be used to extract information from these embedded images.
