LensTagger Lightroom Plugin Adds Missing EXIF Data for Manual Lenses
Are you one those photographers who use a lot of manual lenses and struggling to add EXIF data to your photographs? Do you have a big collection of manual lenses? One of the biggest problems with manual lenses is that programs like Lightroom will not show any EXIF information and that makes it very hard to organize images. Apart from that no lens information will be shown in photo sharing websites like Flickr or 500px.
LensTagger is a free but useful Lightroom plugin which can save your money and time. LensTagger is similar to ExifTool without those complicated command prompts headache.
LensTagger helps in adding EXIF information like aperture and focal length using a graphical interface. To use LensTagger you need to have ExifTool installed but all the complicated command line headache are taken care by the LensTagger tool itself.
To start the plugin after installation you just have to start LensTagger from -> Plug-In Extras -> LensTagger
Then use the tool to add lens name, Focal length, maximum aperture and F-stop and then just have to press the “Run Command” button. That’s it the plugin will then do all the background processing to add all EXIF information. The interface is very clean and easy to understand.

The best part of LensTagger plugin is that it is free and not like other expensive tools like PowerExif. The other big issue with many other paid options is that those are not compatible with Mac OS.
