      as the tool can only be used in ssh and only admin or root are supposed to use ssh, I didn't find the need for this.
      I'll try to change that in the next version tell me if it's ok.
      but everything might change with DSM 6 where not even root can access....

    To make the package work from any account and not only root :

    cd /usr/bin/lib/
    find . -type d | xargs chmod 755

              Thanks again Sylvain! (couldn't reply directly to your answer, guess there are too many levels, that's the reason why this reply is misplaced).

              Logging in with root allowed Exiftool to run. (No need to say I am new to this, I guess...)

              To summarize for other users at my level:

              - Make sure "Synology Inc. and trusted publishers" is selected under package center settings
              - add https://www.cphub.net to package sources
              - Install Perl package
              - Install Exiftool package
              - activate ssh (or telnet)
              - log in as root

              Hello,
              it says "Permission denied"... I guess your user doesn't have the good rights...
              try with root account

              Now I have another problem. Exiftool is installed, but will not run. Get the message

              "Can't locate Image/ExifTool.pm: Permission denied at /usr/bin/exiftool line 30.
              BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/exiftool line 30."

              Any ideas?

            Thank you, Sylvain, that did it!
            Exiftool is now installed.

          could you make sure in the package center settings you have selected "Synology Inc. and trusted publishers" to allow installation of package

        Hello, thanks for the quick reply!

        I tried a reboot after reading your tip, but Exiftool still will not install.

        I have these packages installed:

        Audio Station 5.4-2860
        Cloud Station 3.2-3497
        Download Station 3.5-2970
        Media Server 1.4-2644
        Perl 5.18.4-0023
        Photo Station 6.3-2963
        Video Station 1.5-0776
        VPN Server 1.2-2456

        At the moment I only use/need VPN server, will it help to uninstall the other packages?

      Hello,
      did you try to reboot? I have it installed on a 215j without problem.
      what other apps do you have?

    Hello, using the package center I tried to install Exiftool 10.10 on a DS215j running DSM 5.2-5644 Update 3. First I installed Perl, and then when I tried to install Exiftool I get a short message saying "Can not install Exiftool". Are there any tricks or other way of installing this?

    Permissions seem broken. Just installed 10.00 on a DS415+ running DSM 5.2-5644 Update 2. Can't actually run it, because the extra "libs" added are installed with no permissions.

    DiskStation> ls -al /var/packages/ExifTool/target/lib
    d--------- 4 admin users 4096 Aug 18 09:20 .
    drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Jan 2 14:37 ..
    d--------- 2 admin users 4096 Aug 18 09:20 File
    d--------- 3 admin users 4096 Aug 18 09:20 Image

      as I know of, photostation reads files everytime they are loaded.
      when I add comment to as photo then update photostation with the new file, I automaticaly have the comment in photostation.
      if you don't have what you added visible in photostation that means that you did not add the same tagg as photostation uses.

    Nice package i just installed.
    With Exiftool on Synology, I update photos in my photo shared folder to add face recognition XMP tag from picasa. File is well updated (new XMP metadata). But Photostation didnt update it's metadata concerning faces.
    If I do this job with exiftool windows runtime from windows thru SMB shared folder, it works : photostation metadata is updated.
    I use the -overwrite_original -P parameters.

    How to force photostation to reread metadata from updated files ?

    hello,
    sorry for late response, I just saw your post.
    if you have already installed it, I suggest you to uninstall before putting the package.
    it will probably work anyway, but don't know wich version will respond first so for future updates, you might not have the latest one running.

    Thank you for making this package, I have manually installed exiftool but a package is way more convenient if future DSM updates break the installation like it has done before. My question is, if I can install this package regardless of me having installed exiftool already manually?
