Introducing the ExifInterface Support Library

Exif tags store information such as the orientation, date and time, camera information, and the location directly in a JPEG or RAW file. The ExifInterface Support Library is new in version 25.1.0 and unbundles support for reading Exif information from JPEG and raw (DNG, CR2, NEF, NRW, ARW, RW2, ORF, PEF, SRW and RAF) formatted files and setting the Exif information on JPEG image files.

This makes previously API 25+ only format support and the ability to read Exif information from content:// URI InputStreams available on all API 9+ devices.
