Editing Orthophoto

Hello - I have a general question around WebODM generated ortho metadata. I am attempting to edit orthos as part of my ODM post-processing to clean up artifacts outside the areas of interest and make the overall image a bit cleaner. The final image seems to lose some important meta data from the original. Does anyone have any editor recommendations to make sure this information stays along for the ride? Thank You.

If you are comfortable with python, there are a range of libraries for manipulating exif and related formats and could be used to copy over the metadata.

I myself often use the exiftool command line utility which is quite effective and simple.

Thanks Stephen! Will do some more homework on this.
