I Have a lot of images on my hd and CDs but not a good uniform
Wonder if there are methods/applications that can search through the entire
disk for only PSD/JPG-text-resources.



1. Extract text info from JPEG format

hi all,

I'm looking for some programcode (preferable in C or C++) to extract header
information and picture information from JPEG files. I need this to use the
'text info field' that can be filled in in Photoshop, in my own (MS-ACCESS)
Anyone out there that can give me some clues in finding such a piece of
program (DLL, OCX or something)

As a second question I like to know where I can find the exact (physical)
format descriptions of JPEG and TIFF files. There must be webpages about the
graphic formats.

Thanks alot,
