Is it possible, to add basic exif data with iMatch to a jpg file without any exif?
I use a HDR Software, which doesn't write the exif data of the source pictures to the output jpg.

I would be glad to get a positive answer (iMatch can do anything... :-))

EXIF data is designed to be written by the imaging device (camera). Adding EXIF data to files after the fact is rarely needed. But can use ExifTool for this purpose.

See, for example, this blog:

I would use ExiftoolGUI to do this. It is an excellent graphical front end to Exiftool.

Make first some tests with copies of your JPG, then try to open them in any viewer and browser you have to make sure they are still read.
