App::CopyrightImage - Easily add Copyright information to your images
Modified copy of images will be placed into a new
ci directory within the directory you specify. If no directory is specified, we'll create it in the current working directory. 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

It works on individual files, as well as recurses (top-level only) of a supplied directory.
It does NOT modify the original file (except for
remove). We create a subdirectory named
ci in whatever path you specify (current working directory if a path is not sent in), and we then take a copy of each original file, modify it, prefix the filename with a
ci_, and place it into the new

A string containing either an image filename (including full path if not local), or the name of a directory containing images. If the value is a directory, we'll operate on all images in that dir.
We will, by default, create a new sub-directory named

All updated images will be copied into the new
