Shortcuts Tags

Shortcut tags are convenience tags that represent one or more other tag names. They are used like regular tags to read and write the information for a specified set of tags.

The shortcut tags below have been pre-defined, but user-defined shortcuts may be added via the %Image::ExifTool::UserDefined::Shortcuts lookup in the ~/.ExifTool_config file. See the Image::ExifTool::Shortcuts documentation for more details.
