Hello,

When we take a picture with a Android device, we can know which device took the picture by consulting the details of the picture.

Does someone know where is the database of these metadata?
Where are saved the brand and the model of the device?

I wonder this because I'd like change the brand and the model of the device in metadata.



In this picture I'd like replace "AMOI" by an other brand.

Thanks for your help.

PS : I'm sorry for my pitiful English. [emoji16]

You can edit the metadata of a pic using a pc or your android itself!

in a PC :
*right click the photo
*select properties
*in the properties tab, select details and you can see all metadata there, you can click whatever you want to change then press Save below!

on your android phone:
*download this app from market Photo editor
*open the app, from the app, open that pic using the gallery or file browser option, or simply sharing the image from any place to photo editor
*you will see the pic loads with editing options, clickinfo in the bottom left corner
*you will get metadata now, edit your desired options and save

Done!!

Yes of course but I would like the right metadata be placed automatically on every pictures.
So instead of AMOI I'd have directly the other brand...

So, you need to root, then use a file browser like ES File Manager, open /system/build.prop as a text file, there scroll down and when you can see AMOI , change it to whatever you like, then save it and reboot.
Now all your photos will come with the new name you put instead of that AMOI.

Thanks you for your advice.

But checking the buil.prop is the first thing I did. And that data isn't located in the build.prop
So it's embarrasing because I don't know at all where it is located :/

I checked many files...but not found yet...I hope I'll find!
