imgcopyright - Easily add copyright information to your images
Modified copy of images will be placed into a new
ci directory within the directory you specify.

All new images will be prefixed with
# set copyright imgcopyright -i picture.jpg -n "Steve Bertrand" -e "firstname.lastname@example.org" # all pics in a directory imgcopyright -i /home/user/Pictures -n "Steve Bertrand" # find images without copyright info imgcopyright -i /home/user/Pictures -c # specify an alternate output directory imgcopyright -i /home/user/Pictures -n "steve" -d ~/mypics # replace a previous copyright imgcopyright -i picture.jpg -n "steve" -f
