ta,

Reading metadata from a file is something that is dependent on the file
itself. On top of that, metadata formats are pretty different depending on
the type of metadata stored, and the file it is stored in. While there has
been normalization on some level of the metadata itself (XMP for example),
where that data is stored in a file is not.

For Exif data, you should be able to get the information through the
PropertyItems property exposed by the Bitmap class. You will need the EXIF
property identifier for the property you want to get.

Hope this helps.

Here you will find a very nice discussion regarding metadata. It includes
code for an extensible metadata reader:
