Just make sure to install exiftool first before you use this tool. On Windows please remove the (-k) from the filename and put the executable inside the plugin folder or at any other place where you prefer to have it. On Mac OS X it’s an installable package anyways.

As of Version 1.9.0 ExifTool comes bundled with the plugin.

You need at least Lightroom 3 to run this plugin.
