One thought on “How to look up file metadata in OS X

  1. B. Jefferson Le Blanc

    I’m surprised there’s no utility to provide this kind of information more easily. Since support for SuperGetInfo was abandoned some years ago, however, there does not seem to be any successor to that useful tool. There are any number of file type specific metadata utilities, for video, audio and graphics files, but I can find no app on MacUpdate that works on all file types. On the other hand, if you’re the sort of person who needs to know the more obscure metadata associated with files, perhaps noodling about with Terminal is just your cup of tea.
