    Hi,

    Yep, SIPS may well do the job. If not then you might also want to take a look at exiftool:

    http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

    Note that both exiftool and SIPS are command line tools so you'd need to use the "Run Shell Script" Automator action (and have at least a basic grasp of the command line, of course!).

    Good luck!
