There are heaps of tools that can assist you, you've been pointed towards the excellent ExifTool in previous threads. The command line version is very easy to work with, and I have made a few different "tools" that whip out, or change exif data where required. A very versatile tool that handles many other metadata types on top of exif data (like MS office files, ID3 etc).
Other candidate tools are:-
Apache Tika - http://tika.apache.org/ - I use this quite a bit in testing, and wrangling various text based objects
Jhove - http://sourceforge.net/projects/jhove/ - this will pull out all the exif in a lump where you can do things with it. We use in the Rosetta validation stack, and it forms one of the processes that we use to automatically extract and capture exif data from supported image files.
All these tools will give you a structured object (CSV, XML etc) that you can use to seed a next step process, e.g. ingest into a CMS or repository.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Automated Embedded Metadata Extraction in Photographs: Possible or Pipedream?
I'm wondering if there is a systematic method that can extract metadata embedded in digital photographs and then ingest that metadata into a CMS and relate them to their corresponding images. We currently use DigiTool, if that makes a difference.
