Simple Photo Stats

This project is about a small tool providing some stats of your photography.

It is mainly a selfcontained SQlite database that stores the data which is extracted from the exif data of your images using exiftool and provides some predefined statistics about the data which can be queried with the tool itself or a database tool like SQLiteStudio.


The famous exiftool needs to be installed on your system.

using binary

There are prebuilt binarys (currently x86_64 linux only) and packages for Arch Linux and derivatives available for every ref.

using bare scripts

Simply clone the repo or manually download the scripts from

To run the script, open a shell and invoke perl, on most systems it should be sufficient to just invoke (after you granted execute-permissions to the script).

prerequisites for running the pure scripts

  • Perl 5.30 (or newer)

Additionally the following perl modules need to be installed:

  • Cwd
  • DBI
  • Perl::DBD::SQLite
  • File::HomeDir
  • File::Spec::Functions


available stats

  • pictures by lens
  • pictures by camera body
  • pictures by shutterspeed
  • pictures by focal length (35mm) used
  • pictures by iso used
  • pictures by aperture

The stats are available as grouped counts by

  • all time total
  • by year
  • by month
  • by week of year


  • I have my images on a network share, how can i include them into the stats?
    You should mount the share and use is like a local directory.

  • Can i add different folders to the statistics?
    Omit the -c param when populating the database to avoid cleaning up old values. The tool will take care that now duplicates are added.
