ExifTool is a powerful tool. It read a lot of images informations. I got the idea from my last plugin, MediaInfoWDX. Using it as template, to create this plugin to connect to ExifTool to pull the informations. After the first info query, ExifTool will be remain in the memory, until TotalCMD is closed. If TotalCMD is closed unexpected, ExifTool will be
need to be ended in Task Manager.

ExifTool can update the tag values, So the incorrect tags can cause the tag value lost.

    Can you please fix non-ANSI name handling? As soon as a filename has e.g. Russian character in it, I get “No file specified” in every WDX field, while in Explorer ExifTool handles the file fine.

    The DateTimeOriginal returned with the plugin is different from the DateTimeOriginal returned with the command line version of exiftool (it seems as if the plugin adds the time zone).

    thanks for the plugin!
