    File info

    good afternoon
    I am a photojournalist. Always worked with windows and photoshop.
    I tried Linux, Ubuntu 13.4, I loved it. I'm with some difficulty adapting. Introduced in photoshop some information in the photographs taken by me. In linux how can I do?
    Write the "file info" (IPTC) with the information that I want and the newspaper requires.

    Thanks all who try to help me

    I found this. It is in (from terminal):
    man exiv2

    exiv2 -pi image.jpg
    Prints the IPTC metadata of the image.

    Also many other parameters to edit or change metadata. example:

    in | insert
    Insert metadata from corresponding *.exv, XMP sidecar (*.xmp)
    and thumbnail files. Use option -S .suf to change the suffix of
    the input files. Since files of any supported format can be used
    as input files, this command can be used to copy the metadata
    between files of different formats. Modification commands can be
    applied on-the-fly.
    Also:
    man exiftool

    Try digiKam or Darkroom. They have a lot of tools for professional photgraphers. For directly editing photos, try the Gimp.
